Games like today are amplifying how much I miss the Tournament of Champions.

The less said about that game, the better.

Instaget FJ.

Two words: STAY CLAM

Mir in 1973? Hmmmmm.....

Jarrett must have been thinking about Apollonia purifying herself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka instead of focusing on the clue. :oops:

Why why why did Jarrett keep going back to Chemistry when it was obvious he didn't know the subject?

This golfer knew instantly Caddyshack would be a stand and stare. But at least they STAYed CLAM. (is that proper English?)

On a positive note, all three contestants were able to play FJ!

Holy mackerel! That was about the worst game ever. Why has the last few weeks given us so many candidates for "worst game ever"? How did the person in the middle even pass the test? I hope someone else counted the S&S because I didn't.

Yikes, rough game to watch.

I was waffling between saying "Do Re Mi" and "Doe a Deer" and went with a latter. Wasn't sure if Alex's comment meant they might have accepted my wrong answer?

Sweet lord. All those TSes and stand-and-stares and it took that long to even get a LTaM warning in that awful DJ round? Bull$#*!. I think we were just trolled. Lots of 4th podium champs today.

Instaget FJ. Honestly, I was hoping they all got it wrong and the game ended with a triple zero. Another time.

I considered Do-Re-Mi, but I thought it was from Mary Poppins so I went elsewhere. I said "Getting to Know You."

I think I redeemed myself, though, by having a runaway from all the trash on the boards. Seriously, some of the misses and stand-and-stares were just cringeworthy.

Congrats to Kelly on her win. I had 38 correct responses including fifteen triple stumpers: Stove Top, Skylab, shingle, Lake Superior, manger, reduction, halogens, lion, propeller, monotonous, Purple Heart, "Waste not, want not", yellow, Goldie Hawn, and Caddyshack. I also got the missed DD of centrifuges. Instaget FJ.

I think we now know why they're running the online test so soon after the last one. If these are the best of the bunch, it's probably best to drain the pool and fill it back up again.

I say bring Kelly's 91-year-old grandfather behind the podium if she comes back next week. Normally, I would disregard a contestant claiming her grandpa is better at Jeopardy! than she is, but after today's performance, I reckon that's an accurate assessment.

Yeah, have to agree with the comments here. I didn't think it could get worse than Monday, but apparently it could as shown by today. I try not to bad mouth any of the contestants, since it's obviously an excruciating process to just get on the show and I'm certainly not contestant material as of now, but oh man these three were making it extremely difficult. Maybe it was just nerves. Either way, I sure hope we get a good batch of competitors soon.

As someone who's eligibility expired last month, this game was extremely painful to watch.
