Re: Jeopardy!'s 2018-19 contestants - where are they from?

On my paperwork, they specifically asked for the location where you are NOW, and excluded where you are FROM. I think this is because we filmed little promos called "hometown howdies", but they insisted on using your current location. They run those in the viewing market of your current station, NO...

Re: Harry Friedman stepping down after Season 36

Also, bring back tie games (that is, both contestants come back the next day whenever one occurs) as well. I think this is a good example of addition by subtraction. I get that they don't want leaders to play for a tie, but if both players were tied before FJ and shoot the moon and both get it, bri...

I bet next Monday they're going to rerun the All-Star games. And after that, they ought to air some of the James Holzhauer episodes instead of one of the Teen Tournaments.
You lose.

I see a note that the Chicago test is August 24, but no one has mentioned being invited. I checked my mailbox today (including the spam folder) and no invite, sadly. Can anyone confirm?
There are posts in this thread regarding Chicago.

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

James should be Ivory Soap certain to make it to the semis as there cannot be any scenario for things to go so wrong that he is one one the six out instead of nine moving on. You can't win the tournament in the quarterfinal, but you can certainly lose it. James will play ultra-conservative in the q...

One for cheezguyty: Has the opening pick of the DJ! round ever been a first-box DD?
The last first-box DD (6/25/18) was also a 1st-clue pick.

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Can I also just say: Looking at it from your own perspectives, what on earth would it do to your ToC preparation in the back of your head if all people were doing was talking about how you got invited and possibly even calling your ethics into question? I'm incredibly disappointed in many people in ...

Okay, I have deleted my previous comments. The parts that were quoted should be deleted, too.

Sorry for the trouble.

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

So they hated Emma for defeating James, and now they hate her for accepting an invite to the TOC. Got it! I haven't expressed any animosity towards her. The deletion of my prior posts on this subject makes no sense. What a joke. The posts were deleted precisely because you expressed animosity towar...

Moreover, there was a single magic number (exactly $1600) that accomplishes everything (goes ahead of Ryan if Ryan misses, stays ahead of Kevin with Kevin's bet), and she didn't bet that number.

On a professional level, I can see why people would miss this clue.

On a personal level, I'm disappointed that not everyone would get this clue.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

(It's possible this is Philippines only, I'm at work so I can't check.) Per Reddit, Netflix now has 32 season premieres available to watch. We switched to Hulu a couple months ago, so I can't check if they have what we need. But it looks like we need Season 4 Season 5 Season 6 Season 11 The pic the...

Question for cheezguyty (mostly because I don't keep tournament data in my spreadsheets):

Other than Holzhauer games, where does today's game rank in terms of "combined final score post-Final Jeopardy"?
