Alex Jacob (omgwheelhouse here)
He's whoisalexjacob here now. Either he decided since his identity became public to have his handle here match his Twitter handle, or he decided that he didn't deserve his former handle after clamming on a clue where "wheelhouse" was the correct response.

I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

The Times compiles Triple Stumpers from the GOAT tournament, and credits the Archive in the subhead (and there's a joke at the end):

Ken says he's likely done playing Jeopardy!:

I'm probably reading too much into this, but the first thing I thought of is maybe Ken will be taking over for Alex when Alex steps down. Hmm.

Got a laugh out of that 2nd article, “The Fairy Queen”. And it wasn’t in regards to the wife of Oberon.

"Once we wrote the games, then we had to go back and compare all this material with all the games that have been played previously by these three contestants, so we weren't repeating clues that might have been asked previously," says Friedman. "It was a scrubbing process of comparing these subjects and categories and responses to all of the games, the hundreds of games, that these three collectively have played before. That's where our database certainly came in handy."


their database? they have a database?

It must suck to hold a record and have an asterisk on it.
