Ken interview in Vulture: https://www.vulture.com/2022/10/intervi ... hards.html

From the interview: "It was all about Alex and the tiny mechanics you don’t realize he’s doing. I started jotting down the 20 different ways he used to say that a contestant was correct. You don’t want to keep repeating the same “yes, yes, yes” or “right, right, right.” He had a way of mixing it up and honing it over the years. I would jot down every time he had a great turn of phrase. "

Has anybody put together all of the ways Alex used to say an answer was correct?

I don't have the info on Alex, but there's always this route. . .

That was one thing that stood out about Bill Whitaker as a host. He used the same two or three stock responses.

How can I capture the deep strangeness of appearing on "Jeopardy!"? You step into an actual, physical environment you've visited hundreds of times, but never in person. The space feels more intimate than it looks on TV. The big board remains formidable.

If ever I get The Call, it's gotta help that I've been in the studio audience for multiple tapings ;)

Good read. You only get one shot so don't f*** it up – unless you get selected for Second Chance :shock: :o :lol:

You already got the call, but you haven’t made it to the show yet. ;)

I’ve seen numerous articles about Cris’s run that mention him being “visibly upset” or frustrated or arguing with the host and it’s pretty cringey. The AI they’ve got writing those clickbait headlines ought to be ashamed of itself.
I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

Quote from today's Parade Magazine (their last print edition ever):

You know you're famous when ... You're not part of the pop culture lexicon until someone makes fun of you or you're a Jeopardy! answer.

And Jeopardy! featured a magazine category called "Parade of Dictators" on the show, based on the magazine's then-annual feature "The World's 10 Worst Dictators."

Special bonus: the issue has a feature on Sam Buttrey, er, I mean Steve Martin.

the show has also made waves this week for another reason: a clue in Sunday's celebrity edition of the show.

Host Mayim Bialik read the clue: "In 2021 fugitive Brian Laundrie ended his days in Fla.'s Myakkahatchee Creek area, home to these long & toothy critters." The answer was alligators.

Laundrie fatally shot himself in October 2021, after having written in a notebook that he had killed his fiancée, Gabby Petito. She was 23.

After Laundrie was mentioned in the episode, an attorney for the Laundrie family, Steven Bertolino, said his clients were upset and noted the online backlash.

"The entire Laundrie family is appalled and concurs with all of the comments on social media on how distasteful this was," he told CBS News on Wednesday. "I believe an apology is due.

Own it, losers. You raised your boy to be a murderer. You aided and abetted him after he came back without Gabby. You ought to be ashamed to show your faces in public.

I don't disagree. But it was a wildly inappropriate clue.
