I thought exactly the same but felt that the Ameritrade guy was taller. Mikes probably most recognizable from several GEICO ads.

Which ones? I've certainly seen my share of them, but don't remember him in any of them (not that you're supposed to remember the actors).

Way too easy FJ; it would have been a little challenging to ask for 2 of the 4 countries instead.

Couldn't believe the tribute bands cat didn't include a Dead question.

Thought the FJ was perhaps over-pinned with four nations and wasn't surprised by the triple solve. Close, strong game.

This has probably been mentioned already, but my pet peeve with recent guest hosts is how long they take to judge whether a contestant's response is correct. All those agonizing pauses!!! You can see the contestants sometimes second-guessing themselves while they wait for the ruling. Anderson won on Celebrity J! twice — shouldn't he know immediately whether a baseball game lasts nine innings? It's as though he's checking with the judges after every response. The answer key is right there in front of you, Mr. Cooper!

Speaking of Celebrity J!, today's laughably easy FJ clue was something you'd expect to see on Celebrity J! or the Teen Tournament.

Or a camel, or possibly a caveman? :lol:

Sorry — brain cramp. It was a Progressive commercial

That explains it. I try to avert my eyes from those. Can you really make a living doing that?

He's the "blue" guy! I had no idea. I think that commercial is hysterical. OK, at least the first 50 times I saw it it was.
