Between Michael and Yogesh what kind of trivia fire power were audience guests?

Also Troy Meyer is on next week. TPTB bringing out the big guns.
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.

I remember seeing that list from the TCONA auditions and thinking "These people are too good and they'll never let them on. They should just invite them all the same week, for an epic battle royale." Looks like I may not have been too far off.

Another indication that they've completely reversed themselves on having champions with long runs. There's hope for Austin!

There’s a real possibility that Yogesh will win until next week and play against Troy in the regular season. I already feel bad for the third podium contestant.

So should morbedo retroactively not bother showing up?

‘Tis better to have played and lost than never to have played at all.

I like morbeedo and didn’t mean to dismiss him. I don’t have any insider info and assume he has a real chance to win as well.

Re: my earlier point

Don’t Yogesh and Troy know each other? So if Troy is playing next week does that mean Yogesh gets eliminated this week?

I’m looking forward to watching. I don’t know anything.

Troy and Yogesh have certainly crossed paths at various live trivia events I've attended. Whether that's enough to disqualify them from competing I'm not sure.

Details fade over time. Wasn't there some kind of "know each other" about Alex Jacob and Scott Blish? And part of that was two with the same name?

With the talk about J! Masters on today's podcast I'm thinking this may have something to do with some of the notables finally getting THE CALL to appear in 2023.

If Tim Polley or Andrew Ullsperger shows up on J! the following week, then I will be on to them.
