Surprised neither of the boys knew Susan Collins (ME) or Lisa Murkowski (AK), both current U.S. senators very much in the news

Between Vermont and Maryland, I had no clue but tilted north

I like Zen Eugene

When you bring back contestants who were crappy the first time, and then allow them to act like this, you get your show canceled.
No need to be an asshole.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Eugene is a dear friend of mine and your comments are decidedly not excellent towards him.
Ditto. Don't see how that post/point adds to the topic as hand. If you're going to critique, wouldn't of gameplay than of his person be more warranted?

I'm surprised they even needed to put a mic on Eugene. I'm glad Golf has been taken to task for his comment. One thing you can say about Eugene and Scooter is that they were entertaining. That's good for a TV show.

I would have gone with the audience for the Trump question. Jupiter was a quick get, and I came up with Murkowski, Mikulski, and Collins right away, so VT it was.

I hadn't watched for a long while until a few years ago, but I am going to miss it.

I shed tears during the Prince Harry question. I have no idea what those guys were doing when news of the marriage of Prince William, and the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte broke. :roll:

Given what I just came home to in the mail, I am no longer concerned about their financial condition. Unless the damn thing bounces.

Me too.
Won some of Ben Stein's money, some of Roger Lodge's, some of Chris Harrison's. None of Alex Trebek's.

Eugene was hard to watch. It does seem unfair to bring back players who previously blew it. I’ve enjoyed this show intermittently over the years except for that year with Terry Crews. Let’s hope Mental Samurai sticks around!

I guess it's a matter of taste. I thought Eugene was great, and watched it twice.

totally agree...i don't mind eccentricity, but when it becomes overly annoying? yeah it is bad...that eugene dude might be the most annoying player ever....was hoping they would have stabbed at the clue and missed rather than walking and taking home money

don't blame golf...eugene brought it upon himself...i am sure you could do a poll of people who saw his episode and thought he was annoying and it would be pretty high in favour of being annoying

can't comment about viewing experience? eugene detracted immensely from having a positive viewing experience in regards to his episode
