I trust implicitly that if the song "Under My Thumb" is running through the heads of any male readers of this thread, it is strictly in reference to the signaling device. :o
Poo-tee-weet? So it goes.

Oh, come on! The OP was a waste of time! The clicking through pages is the fun part!

Agreed. I appreciate the chance to increase (not improve) my vocabulary.
And maybe the original poster is on to something. On Survivor,
Spoiler
macho Tony noted a [potential] woman's alliance of 4 forming (3 of whom were in his alliance), and was so afraid that he teamed with his strongest rival (male, of course) to vote out a threatening female player.

New Survivor tag-line: Outwit, Outlast, Outplay, Outchange.

Not to encourage the original poster, but a quick look at the 31 regular games since Arthur Chu's run, and only 8 of those games had 2 male contestants (I am assuming Gabor was male but I really don't remember) all others had at least 2 female contestants, if not all female contestants.

Has Dr. J and the Sisterhood already taken over the contestant pool/selection process?

I am going to contact Jesse "the Governor" Ventura to investigate.

Normally my response is my usual "what difference does their gender make? They're all people!" But instead, I have to say ...

Well great...it just got worse now that this week has been in. At this rate for Julia, she'll run throughout two weeks of challengers. It's becoming long and hard for to understand now it has been 4 weeks maybe for the women dominating.
Jeopardy! is like History. It's a mixed bag of categories that try to test your knowledge to see if you know or can recall answers that seem familiar to the viewer.

Why do you think this is a bad thing? Do you not believe the best player in any particular game deserves to win if they manage to accumulate the most money? If it's a man for 74 games in a row or a woman for 23+ games in a row, why do you feel it is a problem?

Not as long and hard as it is to understand this "sentence".

New York Magazine will have an article on The recent Outchange Phenomenon this Tuesday. I can only hope Steve Friess interviewed the OP... (Julia and I were both contacted.) Hopefully this will lead to increased wailing, garment rending, and gnashing of teeth.

This is the biggest and most influential outchange I've seen since my nana had 5 daughters in a row.
