And she does it again! Leading 14,600-14,400, she wagered 14,200, allowing her competitor a chance to tie w/ a correct answer and an all-in bet.

Didn't happen though. Challenger wagered 5,000 and answered incorrectly.

Come on, he was joking about her being into Nerd Rap. She laughed and agreed with him.


I think she was laughing it off because what else can you do? Snipe back at him? Call him an asshole to his smug, pretentious face? Because he *is* most definitely a smug, pretentious, obnoxious, condescending, smarmbucket- especially to female contestants.

And as pilight pointed out, victory is the best revenge. (Though if it was a runaway, after that exchange I'd be tempted to bet 0 and write "Suck it, Trebek" as my FJ answer. Fortunately, he wasn't quite that much of a douche to me.)

“Do you have any idea how long it typically takes between an in-person interview and the taping date?” Stowell asked in a message to “Jeopardy!” contestant producer Maggie Speak.


“I ask because I just found out that I don’t have too much longer to live. The doctor’s best guess is about six months,” Stowell wrote.

I don't know how far ahead they tape the Clue Crew segments, but Kelly Miyahara was barely showing her baby bump last night. Her son was born last week.

not sure about when they tape their shows, but I believe they tape 4-5 shows a day(M-F) for about a 5-6 week stretch at a time(roughly 100 episodes per taping schedule).

Yeah, one of the champions said it begins to be an endurance test for the champion since they have to do so many shows in a day and then repeat it for the whole week.

She was selected and show producers kept their word, scheduling the taping of her appearance three weeks after the audition on August 31.

Two days of taping per week. I'd have to cross-reference people's schedules to determine the length of the taping schedule.

The current champ is the luckiest guy I've seen. Seven wins and he's been behind going into final on almost all of them.

He has got to be the best I've seen at knowing what to wager in final jeopardy.

That was pretty bad. Shocked



Would be nice if Jeopardy matched her winnings. I read that she is donating hers.

I don't know if they'll match, but what I'm hoping is that, since she's straight-up donating the money, there's a way to reduce the tax burden and make sure the charity gets the full amount. (Multi-state tax payments are a bitchassmotherfucker, let me tell you.)

I forgot that this was the period where the woman who died would be on. Was sad when Trebek mentioned it at the end of the show. Really wish they could have gotten her on sooner.

I guess her statement, "we moved France" about the fellow teenage on the cruise means they had sex.

So sad that she was only a couple of weeks away from seeing her episodes. Would they have maybe had some kind of viewing for her only?

I wonder if she was always that soft spoken or if it was her illness.

I also heard "mooned." I've got to say that was about the last story I would have expected to hear from her. Smile Probably figured 'what the hell,' why not! Smile

According to a few articles she was given a DVD of her first 3 wins before she passed.

Jeopardy posted this post-run video of Cindy describing her run in her own words...very moving

https://www.facebook.com/Jeopardy/videos/1327000884017491/

was a very moving run indeed...when I first heard about her passing I was expecting a one off maybe a 1 day win...but a 6 day run...still impressed by that

One of the Daily Doubles was at the top of a row tonight. Can't remember the last time that happened.

It's happened once before, back in 1993.

Last year there was a game when all three tied with $0. They sent all three home and brought in 3 new contestants, of which Trebek informed them with a hardly restrained gleeful smugness.

I read an article just roasting the players in this game for their strategy. For instance both Carlos and Fran decided to go Daily Double hunting. While this bothers the OCD crowd, it is a legitimately good strategy. Those Daily Doubles are powerful parts of the game. But! If ya gonna hunt them, and ya finds one, fucking BET! Carlos did it right. The first he True Daily Doubled (but lost...no shame, it happens), but the second he got $5100. But Fran...yeah, not so much. She's hunting, pissing off the OCDers, finally finds it...

And bets a whopping $1500. In Double Jeopardy. Wha, wha, waaaa....

I didn't know Jeopardy was still on and have never clicked on this thread, but this expostulation by Q caught my ancient eyes.

When I was a boy, there were two antiseptics that were as common in every medicine cabinet as band-aids: tincture of iodine and Mercurochrome. Kids usually preferred Mercurochrome because it didn't sting as much as iodine. It would leave a red stain on your skin that lasted a long time.

We used Mercurochrome. And mercury thermometers. And played with the mercury when the thermometer would break!

Didn't affect me! Shocked

Alex had brain surgery after a fall.

Hopefully retirement is coming soon and they replace him with a host with an actual personality. While I’m at it, hopefully the producers of TPIR comes to their senses and fires Drew Carey who has ruined the once ‘greatest game show in history’ to a pile of trash. Actually, the producers need to fire themselves too and the show needs to reset to how it used to be. It’s become completely unwatchable. TPIR needs a host with actual charisma and sense of humor like Mr. Barker had. Get rid of the male model who has no place, get 3 female models who are classy and beautiful like Holly, Dian, and Janice were, and restore the showcases at the end of the show to how they used to be, with comedic sketches while revealing the prizes like the old days. Stopped watching that mess about 7 years ago, tried to watch it again a couple months ago to see it was just as bad.

I still think Kelly Miyahara should take over as host whenever Alex retires.

As for The Price is Right, it's the highest rated daytime network show. Drew Carey's not going anywhere.

Alex seems to take so much pleasure in 'correcting' people on their pronunciations.

A clue on tonight's show referenced Michiana.

Alex, it isn't Michiona. It's a combination of MICHigan and IndIANA.
