It's a good week for former J! contestants on Millionaire - Guy Jordan, Sara Lehmann, and Keith Williams are on. I'd post the preview, but it has a pretty big spoiler.
One of those three was on today.

The last question from the 2/19 episode:

Next:
SpoilerShow
Guy took German and did not know the answer.  He used his ATA.
A: Apple - 11%
B: Carrot - 43%
C: Avocado - 32%
D: Corn - 14%
Next:
SpoilerShow
Guy did not like the split and used his 50:50.  It left Apple & Avocado.
Next:
SpoilerShow
Finally, Guy got the bright idea to use his +1 who told him a lawyer is an advocate, so avocado.
Next:
SpoilerShow
Guy will lead off the 2/20 show going for $10,000 with all his lifelines burnt.

This may be the week that finally convinces me to upgrade to a DVR based service.

If you spend 5 hours a month watching tv shows with commercials, spend the 10 bucks (+/- ??) NOW.
I don't get any commission from Dish or Cable companies, but it's the best frill you can get for the money. (In re your avatar, I've got episodes of futurama saved up for when the missus is away). Time shifting and commercial skipping are lifestyle changers. You are LESS likely to waste quality time watching something and you can use downtime to watch or delete.

I probably spend too much time watching TV, but very little of it is TV shows without commercials. When I do it's Sling, which has a "digital PVR" but the channels don't include my local Millionaire affiliate.

no idea about being put up daily...millionaire was dropped on the affiliate around my area the other year and didn't have local access to millionaire episodes for a couple of years...ended up discovering a youtube channel that had last season in full....binged it for a while...the affiliate brought it back this year, so haven't watched on youtube...though i do know that jeopardy episodes are posted daily on youtube, so perhaps someone does it for millionaire as well

A really spoilering very short summary of the 2/20 episode:
SpoilerShow
Image

Image
Next:
SpoilerShow
Guy though Janet Leigh was in The Birds, seemed to take little time on it and with no lifelines went for it on the $10,000 question, the first and only question he saw today.

Sara Lehmann was going for $30,000 and had her +1 & ATA available.
Next:
SpoilerShow
Phu Mai began play for a rare episode with three regular players.  He will be going for $5,000 tomorrow with all lifelines available.

Answers to the above: Tippi Hedren & Abby Wambach

Too bad Sara didn't have me as a +1. I know my Gator greats. :)

I knew Janet Leigh was in Psycho, which blinded me from even considering anyone else, but when Guy mentioned The Birds I immediately realized Tippi Hedren was in that and somehow managed to retcon my comprehension of his sentence as being about Hedren instead of Leigh, so I got very confused when he made Leigh his final answer and thought he was choosing an option he hadn't intended.

Any chance someone could record Wednesday’s and Thursday’s shows? My friend Elliot will be on.

Barring interrupting news events I'll try for the 8:30 PT showing Wednesday morning out of Pueblo, CO. After that I will need to edit it and upload it. I'll post here when it's done.

As of Christmas I can record in (what appears to be) broadcast quality (with the occasional unpredictable hiccup). I had already set my device up to record Millionaire all this week, and now I've bumped the start time back a minute so Chris Harrison's introductory remarks won't get cut off. J! episodes tend to be around 2 gigs apiece, so I'd have to share the Millionaire files with you via sneakernet or mail rather than online.

This is the complete 2/21 episode.  Sorry, I missed Chris Harrison's opening by a hair and I did not include the question of the day. The thumbnail is a spoiler for the first question of the show. It's not very difficult, so no big deal.
SpoilerShow

Comments about the episode:
SpoilerShow
Yes, Ed Koch presided over The People's Court and YT has proof.  I thought the wrong answers on the German food clue were pretty funny.  That was a tough spot on the ATA with a 42% to 25% split.  For Keith. Looking forward to tomorrow and I'll do the same thing with watching and posting.

I watch way too much TV and always have, so I actually remember those Ed Koch seasons. Meh. Not as bad as the Jerry Sheindlin season.

I also watch way too many Marvel movies (like, all of them :oops: ), so while I've never heard of the speechwriter, I knew the director cold. Mildly surprised the audience split wasn't better; 25% for Michael Bay?!

I've never heard of stollen, but...purloinff, shoploaften, and heistentoast!? LOL. Good job going with your gut there.

RETROACTIVE GOOD LUCK, KEITH!!! I'm sending million dollar vibes your way, backwards through time.

Thanks! I was pretty sure Jon Favreau was the speechwriter, but I couldn't remember the timeline and I didn't know the director, so I decided to play it safe. Chris said he was surprised I had to use ATA on that one, but we agreed it was probably going to become useless fairly soon.
He also chewed out the 25% who said Michael Bay
