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'm in favor of anything that causes Trebek to talk less.

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

Super easy Final Jeopardy, surprising that he missed it.

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.

Actually I do get it but that doesn't mean it's still not a boring show with an awful personality-less host.

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
