Doug Miller ... game 4 ... is fabled, and you can search Joan Kantor in J! Archive
Somehow I missed this the first time because of the coyness Sg employed in announcing it. The game is fabled because it contains what is probably the lowest score ever achieved by a single contestant, when accounting for doubled dollar values. Although Joan may have exaggerated her story a bit in later years (or misremembered). She said she got down to -$5,400, but as it turns out, it was only -$5,100. Still a record.

That fourth game was definitely one of those S1 classics. Wild guesses, random applause, and sidebar comments from Alex.

At 1:16:24 of the video, Alex reads a clue containing a slur that nowadays is typically bleeped on network TV. The contestant begins his answer with "How 'bout" (rather than "Who is") and is credited.

Even in a John Mulaney routine?

That completes the run of Joel Nathanson.

I know there are more available old games from this thread not in the archive. No promises when I might get another one in.

Are you sure the second word in DJ3 is supposed to be plural? There was only one person in the correct response.
