So are you saying that any time a daily double is hit on the 30th clue of a round, there is going to be a five or so minute break before the contestant makes their wager? This seems like something we would have heard about before if it is Standard practice.

Slow to reply, but I got this, too. Classical music is not a strong category for me, but I have this on an old album.

Grim, grimmer, grimace

Congrats to Brennan for running the week. Looking forward to seeing him play on Monday.
I'm not; I'm getting rather irked by that odd, lip-less grimace of his.

Well, I don't like the way you look either!

Are hopeful 3 or 4x champs the ones saying this? ;)

That did not happen in my show, where one of the contestants hit a daily double in the 30th clue. He just made his wager and answered the question with no break.
