The man is scary good. Scary, yes. But damn good. I'm not impressed with his FJ! skills, but during regular play... whewwwwwww.

He's been getting a lot of play the last couple of days in local D.C. media, for what I guess are obvious reasons. 10 wins in a row is very impressive.

Joel McCale on 'Soup' was having fun with how long it takes the guy to work up a full smile; oh, and his fingers holding up how many wins he has. LOL

I haven't seen any of this, but--from what's been shared here--is it possible he's an Asperger's candidate?

Some of his mannerisms are consistent with someone on the high functioning end of the spectrum. But making those sorts of determinations by snippets of him on television, and especially with him in only one setting, is near impossible.

I saw some comedian (Colbert?) recently mention how eliminating Jeopardy! shows would give Alex Trebeck less time to be passive-aggressive with people's hobbies. I haven't noticed that in general, just that he can be condescending to some extent, but I do remember the time Trebeck said "And it says here that you go to at least 2 or 3 movies a week". And the contestant said something to the affirmative. Then Trebeck responded with disapproving concern - "I hope that is because you have to do so for your school or your job." And it wasn't, just for fun.

Perhaps the real-life Sean Connery should be a contestant. [especially if you remember Darrell Hammon's impersonation of him on SNL] Wink

What a random Final Jeopardy question. They went from an easy question yesterday to a fairly obscure one today....well unless you are from Seattle or have vistited there.

13-time Jeopardy champ Matt Jackson ends streak, ranks fourth all time in winnings

Quote:
A returning champion finds out pretty quickly that Jeopardy is actually, under the surface, an endurance contest, Jackson said in a statement. A whole weeks worth of episodes gets taped in a day, with maybe 10 minutes of rest between each episode . A huge part of staying alive as a contestant comes down to whether you can stay alert, and a lot of people tire out quickly while the studio lights are on and adrenaline is high.

It really is brutal. You've got to stay on your game, think on your feet, shift categories over and over again. Your opponents have rested and studied you. You've been playing back-to-backs.

Trebek's problem is not that he doesn't have a personality, his problem is that he has a smug, condescending, very slightly sexist personality.

Boring is, of course, a matter of opinion. I rather enjoy it, myself. Very Happy

Haha, right? Totally. Also why it's so fun to send him up on SNL.

George has a lame sense of humor, imo.

anyway, a very underwhelming performance by tonight's trio.

Queenie, I'm curious as to what part of your experience this was based on. We peons who can only know him through the screen see a genteel, refined, articulate gentleman. Was there some specific part of "behind-the-scenes" that he presented a different character?

My husband was on "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?" many years ago, in the Meredith V-Era, and though his time with her was limited, he said that she's every bit as sweet off the screen as she was on screen. But....not all game hosts are created equally.

did anyone catch Queenie's appearance on the early showing of Jeopardy yesterday? it was a rerun of the 2014 Tournament of Champions.

btw, congrats on paying off all your student loans, Queenie!

Looks like they watched the movie rather than read the book...

A colleague of mine used to teach both The Three Musketeers and The Vicomte of Bragelonne. He said that when they got to "The Man in the Iron Mask", some of the student's answers were hilarious.

Nope. It hurt my ears. My wife, who wasn't even watching, started to mimic her from the other room. We spent all night talking like that.

Though I found you get punched if you do it during those intimate moments... Laughing

I've heard it before. It's apparently peculiar to North Georgia.

Susan, the current champion, is my heroine. Both yesterday and today she led going into Final J, and wagered such that had the 2nd place contestant bet it all and answered correctly, they would have tied her.

Beautiful!

She is THE coolest contestant I've seen.
