About the dance... after a certain point, this was mostly Alex's fault:Stanislaus Jacob wrote:There are different ways to have fun. I always liked Bob and did not really mind Jennifer except for the dance, but I would prefer a person being himself/herself to a person forcing himself to be extroverted and showy if that is not who he/she really is. It doesn't mean a quiet person is not having fun. (And while I do not agree with the "haters," the fact that they exist shows that viewers have a wide variety of opinions about what kind of personality they prefer to watch.)
Game 1: I do a little dance. He is delighted, makes a Dancing with the Stars joke. I do the King Tut dance, he is similarly delighted, to the point of asking why I didn't dance at the end of the commercial break, and blushing a bit when I call him on his enthusiasm there.
Game 2: I do an even dorkier dance. Alex comes out, does a little dance himself. At the end of the episode, when I win, I am thinking, "Okay, maybe the dancing shtick is getting old," when Alex flat-out orders me, "Practice your moves." And as we all know... DO NOT CONTRADICT ALEX.
Game 3: I do the Pulp Fiction dance, which apparently everyone on Twitter LOATHES... but which Alex came out mimicking.
Most people hate this EXCEPT Alex Trebek, who was obsessed with it. That's a fair exchange in my book.
