Thank you. I wonder if this means we'll get two weeks of Celebrity Jeopardy!
I really doubt they would go to two weeks.

I can't speak of how Jeopardy does it, but because of scheduling conflicts of the various celebrities, Millionaire doesn't necessarily tape all the celebs straight through in a single day for their week of shows. Sometimes, during a regular taping day, a celeb will come in and play the game; and it can be a few weeks before another tapes their game. Then when all are ready, Millionaire shows them in a single week. For example, you might see Andy Samburg and Justin Timberlake play Millionaire on the same day of the week, but they were never in the studio at the same time.

Good thing, or else they might start giving out "gifts" to the audience.
Sprinkles are for winners.

I'm surprised to see all the naysayers about Celebrity J! -- if you want people like Elliot and Michael in the next ToC, two weeks of celebrities and no ToC berths up for grabs increases their chances.

I don't think the backlash is due to concern about TOC participants, but because celeb tournaments are perceived as fluff. I agree, but I think they're more fun to watch than kids tournaments. I find it interesting to see how celebs do, especially when one of them is rumored to be a relevant QB.

Don't worry – he said "kids tournament", not "kids week" :)

Cameras aren't allowed in the studio, so im pretty mad that the girl got to take those pics.
As a contestant guest I brought in my camera to the studio when I attended the Battle taping last year. The guards saw it when I put in on the table before going through the metal detector. I think the J! people were more concerned by the notepad and pen I had than the camera.
Metal detector? For the Jeopardy! studio audience?

It is possible to be too paranoid.
Contestants go through one too.
Worst profiling ever.

Haha, no problem. I don't think you missed much; I was a pretty awkward contestant.

So I see a "television personality" Kevin O'Leary and astronaut Mark Kelly are playing. I don't know the former.

I wonder if they're going to have Scott Kelly playing at the same time from space as part of their 'twin test'.

Whereas I'm familiar with the former (from Shark Tank and the Canadian version Dragon's Den) but not the latter.

He's also piloted the space shuttle, and his brother just launched for a year-long mission on the ISS. I didn't know he was married to Giffords until a terrorist attacked her.

Is this it? I did a Google search for rylee reynolds and then used the images tab. You know what they say? Once it's out there it never goes away.

At the :09 mark it looks like a Julia is signed in for the #3 spot and the #2 spot lools like a name ending with -son. (Nope, I wrong it's Jared)

Julia Roberts
Julia Mancuso
Julia Stiles
Julia L-D

That's all I got.
