Sarah & Buzzy host
In the coming weeks the podcast will share changes for Season 40.
1:44 July 17 week of games:
The stars were very nice and at first read the clues in too serious a manner. Sarah got them to loosen up and they understood it was for a game show.
Around the time of Good Will Hunting Matt had visited the J! set and met Alex.
Christopher Nolan's wife is a fan of J! and wanted the category to happen.
There won't be a same-type Barbie category.
Player Jerry tried out over 50 years and was a good sport for how J! went for him in 2023.
Ad from 5:55-7:20
Sarah was dancing in her seat for the Max Martin clues and he signed on for using the music.
The bumper for the 7/19 game (quick glimpse between DJ! Round and FJ! Round) showed Buzzy going over to visit with Sarah:
David got the Route 66 DD only because of having attended a wedding the week prior to taping and staying in Chicago on the named place.
Liz got the hang of the buzzer due to switching from lights to keying on Ken's last word in clue. That is Buzzy's method as well while James & Fritz are lights.
Nik was calm as nothing is tougher than facing a room of 9th graders.
Sarah said math would have been allowed for the Friday FJ! clue so working it out on screen would have been fine. Taylor joked about almost taking off shoes and socks to work it out.
16:23 talk with Andrew He:
Everett is now 3-4 months old
Andrew for now is trying to forget about Masters and not thinking about JiT yet.
Masters taping began in March and when Andrew saw text at lunch break about early labor he read the text aloud. It was unanimous he needed to fly home and he made it time for the birth.
Once taping of Masters began the alternate, Cris Pannullo, was not going to play.
Later when taping began after other delays Andrew was now a dad of a 6 wk-yr-old.
Andrew was aware tiebreaker for clues correct was in play. Andrew impressed Ken with gets on high value clues. Andrew proud he plays J! well-rounded.
Masters shared meals & coffees to get along well.
James gave Andrew parenting advice of nobody knows what they're doing.
Andrew sent Sarah 3 pictures of Everett with three different facial expressions and Andrew label them as looks of Andrew in Masters from QFs to Semis to eliminated.
For lunch in the ToC Andrew emulated James with pizza and Coke Zero while Masters he went Matt's way with vegan option.
For the JIT has long list of players he would like to play including Buzzy, Sam K. Brad, Colby, Larissa, and Roger Craig. Andrew then brought up Eric Ahasic and Chuck Forrest.
Andrew will try to balance being a dad vs. staying sharp for J! Andrew is not "a dark horse" anymore. Each time he's played it's been more games with 6 for regular, 8 for ToC and 10 for Masters.
Andrew's proud moment on J! was defeating Amy & Matt in Masters with Ken hosting in being there with winners of 74, 40 and 38 games.
Andrew was doing chat with megaboard J! blanket.
Next week: 7/24 week to conclude the season and talk with Matt Amodio.
