Jeopardy!

Do you watch it the show for hot dudes?

Do you ever yell at the teevee: "Hey, brainiacs! How come I knew the answer and YOU didn't!"

Hot guys are only on Jeopardy about once every other month.

And the handful of contestants that seem like they might be gay never get to say anything that confirms it.

They had a winner a while back who matter-of-factly referred to his "husband" (he was from Massachusetts); many of the guys turn out to be Metros though.

Today was the first time in the history of any of the Jeopardy tournaments that all 3 players in a qualifying round ended up with a final score of 0. Interesting.

The Teen Tournament is going on and today was the second semifinal so normally the winner from today would advance to the finals. It's confusing, but Alex explained that the rules say the finals will consist of winners of each of the semis OR the highest scoring players if there was no winner. So since none of the kids today are winners and they each have 0 points, they are all out and one of the kids from the other semifinals will have a chance at that spot.

The final category today was Capital Cities and the answer was...

"It's criss-crossed by dozens of 'Peace Walls' that separate its Catholic and Protestant neighborhoods."

All 3 kids guessed "What is Dublin?" when the correct answer was "What is Belfast?"

And obviously all 3 wagered everything they had, which I guess I don't understand in this case. One had $1600, one had $12000, and one had $16400. The guy with the most just had to wager enough to make sure the guy in second place couldn't overtake him. But he must have been pretty confident with the category since he shot his entire wad and is now out of the competition because of it.

But it does make me wonder what they would have done today if 2 players had tied for the win. On normal non-tournament days, the ties always return as co-champions, but obviously they can't do that in a tournament.

Oh well. Interesting day on Jeopardy.

I had to give the Teen Tournament style points for this round:

by Anonymousreply 2402/12/2013

I took and passed the test to be on Jeopardy some years ago. But when they called me to actually appear on the show, I was ineligible because I'd been on another game show within the past year. I don't know if it's still in effect, but at that time there was an agreement among all the game show producers that they wouldn't feature anyone who'd been on another game show recently. Missed opportunity, I guess, but at least I won $2100 on the show I did appear on, whereas I probably wouldn't have won anything on Jeopardy.

by Anonymousreply 2502/12/2013

I envy how fast they think. They must be speed-readers, among other things. I'm still reading the question and they're already confidently clicking. They must have been the kids who turned their tests in to the teacher way before anybody else.

I know many of the answers, but it takes me 5 - 10 seconds.

It was a wild finish to the Teen Tournament yesterday.

I don't understand the confidence the winner had when writing his answer to Final Jeopardy. By my math, if the kid at the left podium had wagered everything in final and been correct, he would have been the champion because his total from Day 1 was well ahead.

R36, no racial undertones intended. But his self-satisfying attitude at the end was rather off-putting, black or white. I'm also R42 and I found him very attractive despite the 'fro so I had noting against him.

by Anonymousreply 4502/13/2013

[quote]But his self-satisfying attitude at the end was rather off-putting, black or white.

I got the feeling that he was the only contestant in the whole tournament who was treating it like a game and not some resume highlight or life changing event.

I'll admit I didn't warm up to him until chat time with Alex in the first final round when he told the story about coming home from school every day and watching gameshows all afternoon.

by Anonymousreply 4602/13/2013

Leonard was trending on Yahoo news for "the best Jeopardy answer ever" I guess people really dug it.

by Anonymousreply 4702/14/2013

I'm wondering if Leonard had a brain fart when he was writing this answer. He had enough of a lead to make it a runaway win for the day, and he wagered accordingly so he couldn't be caught. But did he forget about it being a 2 day cumulative final and how paltry his sum was from Day 1?

It must have clicked with him after Alex started revealing answers. I think that's why he has a funny look about him when Alex finally gets to read his answer. He must have been relieved when Shorty with Braces got the answer wrong (and didn't wager enough anyway) because otherwise he would have made Leonard's message about winning look stupid rather than cool.

The only other explanation I can think is that he was confident that Shorty with Braces wouldn't be ballsy enough to wager a big sum in the final. Shorty had actually been pretty conservative with his Double Jeopardy wagers, so maybe Leonard thought he could read him.

by Anonymousreply 4802/14/2013

r48 yes, I think he knew Shorty wouldn't risk a lot. If memory serves he was the one who got most of the daily doubles and he never wagered very much. I have to watch today's now, I completely forgot.

Am I just getting really old or were the people last night young? Like in their 20's? Is this a tournament of champions for the 20 somethings and then later the real one comes?

The guys last night were pretty unimpressive, I liked the girl too. I hope tonight's people are better. At least I was able to answer some questions last night. The teen thing should be easier in theory but it isn't because I don't know the books they read now (except John Knowles, I got that one) or the music or shows.

I always root for the most attractive male, and boo the frumpiest female. I lose interest if at least one of these archetypes isn't represented. Who do I root for when everyone is equally bland and boring?

I actually think there's a disproportionate number of both attractive men and frumpy women on the show. The cute guys usually ping, too, so I think it's a case of higher intelligence among gay men (who are more likely to care about their appearance) while smart women as a group include a higher number of women who are unconcerned with how they look. So it's a lot of gay male overachievers and bookish spinster types.

They admitted in an interview I read that they had dumbed-down the questions to try to make the game more viewer friendly. They're doing more popular culture, but the big change is that they've added more hints.

15 years ago they would have asked what City hosted the first Continental Congress and left it at that. Now they toss in more little hints like "the First Continental Congress was held in this city, the city of brotherly love."

GSN revived The Pyramid game last fall. The contestants, both the celebrities and average players, were generally terrible. You could count on one hand the amount of times teams got perfect 21 scores in regular play. This is in comparison with the old 80s version with Dick Clark where even bad players like Jo Ann Worley could get perfect scores. I kept thinking when I watched the GSN revival "Has the education system gone down that bad?"

The black guy with cocked eyebrow thing won; the other white guy at end I had to really reach to try to recall from his original run, and it was the name rather than the face that seemed even slightly familiar.

I agree that Giles was not hot, he had that balding long hair thing and an outrageous French accent. Which one was David? The heavy one or the thin one? The girl was kind of funny and cute. The questions were hard tonight, I only got about 7 of them, I normally do much better.

David was the older thin guy on the right. I did recall the chubby(ish) fellow on the left who won tonight from his appearances earlier.

David Gard, the out gay man who won I think four days in the fall last year, played yesterday. I didn't know so I couldn't see it. He unfortunately lost. Does anyone know the score? How well did each player play?

by Anonymousreply 8402/20/2013

It's fun when the players do something that makes the audience gasp like the Double Jeopardy wager the guy made on the episode today.

It was a slightly ballsier move than the very bold wager the eventual winner of the Teen Tournament made a couple of weeks ago, but only because his was only an $800 clue whereas the guy today did it on a $1600 clue.

*************

And another item of note - Jason told that story about Stephin Merritt (of Magnetic Fields) recognizing him from the show and how a mutual acquaintance arranged for them to meet and spend a day together. Merritt happens to be an out gay man.

So Alex continued the proud history of Jeopardy making every effort to keep it on the down low that sometimes gay people are contestants. Jason told his story of meeting Merritt and then Alex quickly shut him down from going any further by saying, "We won't put you on the spot with regard to him."

What the hell, Trebek? Are you worried he's going to say something inappropriate on national television, like telling everyone that they fucked?

My guess (and this is only based on the people I know that watch Jeopardy) is that the demographics for the show tend toward the better educated members of the public. And doesn't education level have some correlation to tolerance?

Would it be so scandalous to the audience for a gay contestant to be allowed to acknowledge it? On the contrary, I actually feel that a majority of fans (both gay and straight) are conscious of the efforts the show makes to avoid gay players acknowledging such with their stories, and are probably as offended by that as I (a gay man) am.

Frankly, if Jason had said that he fucked (using better language, of course) Stephen Merritt, that would have been the best Jeopardy contestant story ever! Otherwise they are all so completely forced and therefore usually uninteresting.

Anyway, that's probably my only complaint with the show. And I know the 'closeting' of gay players isn't exclusive to Jeopardy, but it's the only game show I watch and I wish I could say I expect better of them.

by Anonymousreply 8502/23/2013

My parents are both well educated and both watch and they wouldn't care if anyone was gay. They would probably expect it since gays are also a part of the population and some like Jeopardy and want to play it. I think Wheel would have a problem with their audience not accepting gay contestants but I doubt Jeopardy would. Trebek was driving me nuts tonight with his ridiculous French pronunciations of the Canada questions. And I think I did notice him kind of shoot that guy down while he was telling his story.

by Anonymousreply 8602/23/2013

I'm willing to give Alex the benefit of the doubt, only because he probably wasn't aware that Merritt was (necessarily) gay, although he may well have inferred it. More likely, he didn't much like Jason in the first place. If you caught the ending of the show, I thought the way the winner patted Jason seemed a bit condescending. Then again, I though Alex was rather snotty to that guy in shooting down his buying a house in DC with his winnings - I assumed he meant he'd use the money for a decent downpayment, not that he expected to buy one outright, for Pete's sake!

A reminder that David Gard was VERY specific in referring to his HUSBAND when he was winning earlier in the year. Moreover, it seems like almost half the single women on their ping my Dykedar like a foghorn!

I've heard that too r88. I used to work with a really smart IT guy who had tried out for Jeopardy and he told me how incredibly hard the tests were. I don't remember if he passed them but he didn't make the show. He said I shouldn't judge them as being dumb on the show because if they even got on the show they are smart. I also heard about the "lock out" that if you ring in too quick you are locked out from ringing in again and I know I would screw that up because I read it at home before Alex and always try to yell it out while they are still reading it.

by Anonymousreply 8902/23/2013

[quote]A reminder that David Gard was VERY specific in referring to his HUSBAND when he was winning earlier in the year.

Yes that was one, r87, and good for David getting that out there. I've been regularly watching for nearly 3 years now (and sporadically before that) and that's the only example of a player mentioning a same sex partner/spouse that I can recall.

Yet isn't safe to assume that there have been many, many other gay contestants?

I do believe that the questions gay players get asked during the "get to know the contestant" segment sway toward the player telling a story that won't expose that they have a same sex partner. Whereas heterosexual players always seem to include a mention of their spouse or boy/girlfriend.

And I have no thoughts on whether Trebek or the production team is responsible for that. But my opinion is that the show as a whole seems to prefer that gay players not make it known.

But it struck me as an awkward thing for Alex to say "We won't put you on the spot with regard to him." when Jason was telling about spending time with Stephin Merritt. The fact that a (sort of) rock star was impressed with meeting (and possibly going on a date with) a Jeopardy champion should be something the show would want to celebrate. At least I'd think so.

It's so much cooler than the stories other players tell of how the extent of their celebrity is being recognized by elderly ladies in their local grocery store. But instead, Alex has him conclude his story by stopping him from going any further.

by Anonymousreply 9002/23/2013

I've always assumed that the gay contestants themselves haven't wanted to be "out" on the show? I was left wondering about the bartender's pig roast - sounded like a lot of fun, and I picked up a whiff of gay at that point. Alex, himself, seems kind of gay=icky to me, and I believe he's personally religious? Still, I can't see the producers allowing an outright embargo on mentioning one's orientation (in context).

by Anonymousreply 9102/23/2013

R91; everyone: surely it's a known fact that Trebek is gayer than a goose??? Married to a woman, and having 2 kids, or not? He lived with his mother (I have read) for years and years, then he moved her to a house on his property (she might still be alive, 90+?) And remember the MANY SLN skits with Darrell Hammond playing Sean Connery ("Celebrity Jeopardy") and making ANY number of gay jokes about Trebek?

Puleese. Married gay, BIG time.

I suspect the same thing with Pat Sajak.

Merv's boys, the both of 'em.

by Anonymousreply 9202/23/2013

r92 I used to hear that too when I lived in Palm Springs. A few of my friends swore Alex was gay and they knew someone who had been with him. I never knew if it was just something their friends were wishful about or if the friends were teasing them. But I always remembered and wondered about it. My friends were a 40 something year old really wealthy couple and knew Merv Griffin if that adds anything.

by Anonymousreply 9302/23/2013

That would certainly explain Alex's discomfort with the subject. Still, I think the gay contestants just haven't wanted to push it by referring to their orientation in the interview segment, rather some sort of censorship.

r102 I know! The bedwetting thing was crazy. I get he was trying to tell his funny story but he should have made up another reason for the alarm. I haven't watched the last two days yet so haven't seen the musical guy. I will do that tonight.

I was shocked; SHOCKED! at the bedwetting story. I was yelling, "too much information!" at my tv, LOL. I wonder what Trebek/producers/audience thought??

SPeaking of the show as a whole, I am shamefaced to admit that as many years as I watch quiz shows (yes, I'm old), I've gotten to think that African Americans don't do quite as well (like "Wheel" tonight); I humbly apologize: look at this year: both the Teen Tournament and Adult tournament winners were African-Americans!

Alex is a smart man, but once in a while he demonstrates that he doesn't know some of the clues based on pop culture.

It's not a big deal at all, but because I'm such a super nerd-fan of the movies, I noted that he was thinking incorrectly about the Alien movie franchise the other night.

Final Jeopardy was Best Actress Oscar Nominations and the clue was worded something like "This 1987 nominee was the first time a woman was nominated for a sci fi film."

Before he started revealing the contestants questions he said (and just as with the clue I don't recall the exact words he used) that the film also launched a franchise. Wrong.

Then once he revealed the first player had the correct question of Sigourney, he added that the movie was Alien. I'm nearly positive that's what he said, and it would go along with him believing that was the start of the franchise.

None of the nerd contestants balked at the slip though. I would have because as the Jeopardy thinking music was playing I was imagining how I would completely dork out while writing my question and have scribbled something like "Who is Sigourney Weaver playing the awesome Lt. Ellen Ripley in my all-time favorite movie Aliens?"

Anyway, I'm a total Jeopardy fan and I don't mean to disparage Mr. Trebek. But I think it's fair game to point out errors like that when they happen so rarely.

by Anonymousreply 13204/24/2013

When the time comes and Alex retires, I think they should consider Brad Rutter to be the new host.

He's lost a lot of weight since his first appearances on the show as a contestant and I actually thought he was kind of handsome when he did the IBM Watson challenge.

He lists TV host as his profession, although I don't see that he has a regular job. And he obviously has demonstrated the appropriate reverence for the game. I'd be happy with Brad taking over.

It seemed an inference that the woman sitting next to the person waving her hand as Cerulean's mom was a same sex partner, but not absolutely certain; I think Alex's references to his "parents" meant he was clued into that in advance? Cerulean seemed gay to me. The idea of a gay kid of gay parents on Jeopardy would be a WHOPPING statement on where we are now.

Of course Alex knows what the contestants are going to say. Do you really believe he could manage even one of his inept comebacks if he didn't?

Surprised the story from a few weeks ago didn't receive more attention. Alex made one of the girl contestants cry during Kids Week. She had no money to play Final Jeopardy, and Alex was a bit harsh in pointing that out, making the girl's mother pissed backstage. She demanded to the producers that part of the show be retaped, but Alex balked and mildly threatened to quit if he were made to retape it.

And a special shout out to my fellow Leszak fans - he definitely had it going on! For women, Stephanie (blond with the cats-eye-like glasses) was probably my favorite from the past year.

I did accidentally run across one contestant not long after her show aired, who wasn't thrilled about being singled-out, but admitted that she didn't find Alex very ... friendly.

Cerulean wins HANDS DOWN as "coolest contestant EVER" - in an interview afterwards I saw on the 'net, he said it was a real thrill to just play "for real" rather than watch at home, regardless of how much money he won.

But "obstetrics" for what might have been "obstetric"-something, would only be adding ONE letter, right?

Unless you showed balls and bet everything on a Double Jeopardy very near the end. No shame in that.

I'll admit I have nagging doubts about the selection of the categories. Vaughn, a science teacher, getting a category about the periodic table of elements seemed a bit too coincidental earlier this week. I've also noticed that when a champion's welcome is wearing thin they flood the board with categories way outside his comfort zone, sports as an example.

R411: When the camera pulls back for a commercial break, a row of people behind computer screens can be seen, which I assume are the judges?

During the commercial breaks, the judges and producers have to re-watch the entire segment to confirm answers were correct and that there were no technical glitches. When I was at a taping, they had to re-record a contestant saying a correct answer before they could continue.

R405, I think you're on to something. But what I've noticed - for about a month now - there are TOO many times where none of the f---ing contestants knows ANY answer, like for almost 1 whole category! Like 1-14. VERY annoying; although it IS always humorous to see how bitchy Trebek is when they miss something.

by Anonymousreply 41401/15/2015

I agree that there are some new answer writers...and they are terrible. If you expect someone to hear and answer a question in a matter of seconds - it should be clearly written so that there is only ONE correct answer.

I feel ashamed for not getting the Antigua and Barbuda answer a few days ago. I was watching with my mom while visiting (she loves it, too), and she'd say "How do you KNOW so much?" Guess I've just picked it up. She holds her own well enough.

Recently, there has been more and more no-answers among the contestants. The sound of crickets chirping does not make for good television - and the producers appear to be reducing the amount of time during these no-answers post production. Good Jeopardy clues used to be written where the answer could have been 1 of 2 or 1 of 3 choices. Now they just stand there with blank looks on their faces because they have no clue what the writers are talking about.

The fault lies fully with the writers. What happened to classic Jeopardy categories? We're forced to sit through contrived categories that fit the "theme" of the categories. Sometimes it's not until the third clue before the contestants can grasp what the writers were attempting to ask.

And can we please have a board that DOES NOT have at least one of the following as an answer - Grandma Moses, Jack Kerouac, Red Badge of Courage, MOMA, NPR or Canadian minutia.

Thanks again about the classic categories. When Alex introduces categories, I try to determine which ones would have been on the old Art Fleming Jeopardy. Less and less. Also, on the old AF Jeopardy, one day all three contestants would up negative. I don't recall ever seeing that on the current edition. Incidentally, I had an automobile accident right after that. So be especially careful should that ever occur.

Category title complaints are 100% true....where are the old reliables? Who decided that it would be "cute" to have the categories read like a sentence across the board?

Stupid. And as has been pointed out, sometimes it takes two or three answers for the contestants to figure out what they are referring to.

It looks like they fired a bunch of writers in 2011 and so the new bunch must be responsible for most of the crap....although they've had the same producer for decades.

R477 and R478, I love you both! Glad other people remember Potent Potables, sigh...Agree the writers are f---ing up BIG time. But as an elder, I will point out that a lot of times with categories like TV shows (or, "old" TV shows), there sometimes are references that I, 55+, would remember (shows from the 70's; even 80's), but I've seen (not recently; maybe a year or so ago, here and there) all 3 contestants stand there with blank expressions, 'cause if they're 20-something or even perhaps early 30's: they don't REMEMBER, unless from reruns on TV Land or whatever, certain shows; they're literally before their time.

(That having been said, I - and probably both of you and a lot of us - DO remember hearing about shows before OUR time!....oh, well...)

I think I understand why they've changed the categories, and a big reason is to try to defeat the Arthur Chu style of play where they jump right to the bottom of the board. With the new style categories it really helps to start at the top and work down.

I'm not defending it, but I find the aggressive Double Jeopardy Hunting style of play very irritating and based on the furor over Chu I'm not alone, so I can see why they're doing it.

Mad respect to Christine Kim for doing what other players often don't have the testes to do. Their cautious play usually guarantees them 2nd or 3rd place.

With time nearly out (turned out hers was the last question) she denied the cute guy a significant runaway win by betting her whole stash on the Daily Double. And that was after he got the first DD and only wagered a measly $700 - perhaps feeling overly comfortable with his lead.

That's the kind of play a majority of contestants seem afraid to do and it drives me nuts as a viewer when their defensive wagering strategies don't position themselves to pressure the leader at the end.

That's not to say that I wouldn't do the same thing if I were up there and had to make a fast decision... but from the comfort of my couch I like to criticize them for playing it too safe and not going after a win.

She was the only one to know the answer to FINAL JEOPARDY....I certainly didn't.

And yesterday's FJ about Oscar winners....I was thinking Jack Nicholson....the only other two time winners I could think of were Spencer Tracy and Fredric March....and of course one of Nicholson's was for Supporting Actor.....

God helps us all....next week starts the Teacher's Tournament that always makes me weep for the students of our country....

Hey ... I like the teachers! It's the kids weeks that cause me to think about going out for dinner, etc.

I'm glad the colored girl won again. She's cute. I hope she uses some of the winnings to get those chicklets fixed because she's actually one of those nerd-pretty girls. And for fuck's sake go get fitted properly for a bra. She's to young to have those titties going down to her bellybutton.

Can all of the New Yorkers stop getting their knickers in a twist over the rest of the world not knowing what the nondescript exterior of Carnagie Hall looks like - or that the PANYNJ owns the Trade Center?

I guess not, since to them, nothing exists outside the island of Manhattan.

The show tapes a few months before air. If dramas and daytime serials with six scenes an episode can be edited in two weeks, what takes Jeopardy so long?

Years back I saw a hot guy on the show, watched every night just for him. The next Sunday saw him at The Dugout on Christopher Street.

Alex says trih-BECK. Why does the announcer call him TREE-beck?

I think Alex is reading this thread. Last night or Thursday night he said: "I know a lot of you are wondering what we talk about when the credits are rolling. . . "

If so, that would confirm the numerous assertions made about him here.

I watched it one time. The question had to do with a large island nation off the coast of southern Africa. One man said, "Malagasy Republic," which at that time was correct, and the host said "Madagascar." The contestant didn't protest. He lost.

It's been 44 years. Hasn't been corrected yet.

I was rooting for the ole math teacher. Something seems "off" to me about Colin, our hip cool champ. The kids dousing each other with fake blood to accompany reading Titus Andronicus -- really? Wonder if he screens the nasty video starring Anthony Hopkins, too?

I knew what GMTA stands for, and guessed "mellow" -- none of those teachers knew either answer. I knew about the Sundance foundation in Utah, too; however, I would've guessed Nashville rather than Frankfort.

r534: What was off to me about Colin--presuming he's an English teacher, why didn't he know that the English nickname, "The blind poet" referred to John Milton, who is considered second to Shakespeare in the canon of English literature (I was an English major long ago).

He was cute, though.

Hi Alex!!

Thought the same thing, r535. Should have been easy for him. Maybe he's just the drama teacher.

I didn't watch Teachers on Monday, but I watched it on Tuesday.

The right contestant won and will move on. I didn't like the science teacher and the "special ed" guy just wasn't on the ball.

The tiny history teacher who won though did have an irritating affected voice that wore awfully thin.

Great first round...board emptied...more struggles in the second round. Good questions, though.

So many of these people don't seem to want to be teachers as much as they want to continue to students in middle school or high school....

Pretty much sums things up, Art. It'll be interesting to see what you think of Monday's winner ("hottie" Colin) when he appears for the runoff. I found yesterday's contestants rather boring.

by Anonymousreply 54302/04/2015

Couple of old dumb bells today....and only two contestants ended up in Final Jeopardy. Another either you know it or you don't question!

Whew - winner was okay, but it was pretty funny that a Latin teacher missed a Latin question.

I guess it's only the young teachers and the old ones who want to be on television.

by Anonymousreply 54402/04/2015

The female math teacher was a hoot. It was as if the Jeopardy producers went to the nearest supermarket and grabbed the first person they saw and whisked her to the studio.

I can only imagine the humiliation the language teacher felt when she returned to school after the taping and had to inform people that she didn't even make it to Final Jeopardy.

by Anonymousreply 54502/05/2015

I think this damn teachers' tournament has questions that are hard as hell. I usually do well over 50% on the final question, but I haven't known a damn one this week, nor have the contestants, for that matter. We have two Virginia so far in the finals.

The teacher/coach who ended up with $0 was extremely nervous, but cute in his own way.

by Anonymousreply 54702/05/2015

They really don't want a White male to win this one. It's been two females against one male the whole run. The male teacher on today was hot as hell. Too bad Sally Fields beat him.

When they showed the previous winners, that little Hobbit was adorable! Guess I missed the night he won. Then again, I was hoping Jay has a gay twin brother. His fumbling Final was excruciating to watch.

Do these guys remind you of many teachers you had? The woman from VT reminded me a bit of my 6th and 7th grade English teacher.

So the little teacher with the bow tie and two last names is in the finals....Andy! (I think) He reminds me of Doug from TOP CHEF this season.

Did I only see two men in the finals?

I think the civics teacher from Friday might have made it if he hadn't changed his RIGHT answer in Final Jeopardy because most of the runners up in all the games had low $$ totals.

Should be an estrogen filled week of games.

by Anonymousreply 55202/08/2015

I think it's Evan, rather than Andy. I'd like to know more about that hyphenated name - and the bird brooch he wore.

Agreed that this year was definitely stacked for the wimmens.

by Anonymousreply 55302/08/2015

Evan....yes.....I am poor, so I couldn't post during prime time, and I had forgotten his name.

Thanks.

by Anonymousreply 55402/08/2015

And Evan moves on! And as he said, if you get done with your classroom work, hold a dance competition.

This was another difficult FINAL JEOPARDY, at least it was for me.

What was strange was that Alex said Evan was the winner no matter how much he wagered before he even revealed his meager bet.....something was screwy with the editing, I guess.

Wonder when the other guy will show up? It would be most interesting if out of ALL of the women, the two male finalists end up in the championship.

by Anonymousreply 55502/09/2015

I felt the Final question was quite easy, but then again ... I'm a nerd. There were times during the show where I had no idea what the answer might be for more than one question.

So, like ... was Evan from a VERY progressive household where his parents' names were hyphenated, or did he add his wife's ... or what? Horizontal striped sweaters are never a good idea.

by Anonymousreply 55602/09/2015

God, that teacher in the middle was so f---ing dumb at first. Wanted to slap her throughout. Guess I'm getting old when the teachers start looking, like, 12-years old.

During the interview, Alex pretty much got him to admit: "OK, already, I'm a HUGE dork!"

The night was one of the lamer I've ever seen.

I knew about Irridium but had no idea that Os means Osmium; I DID, however, know that the Curies discovered Polonium along with Radium. Had no idea of the final answer.

Only one man in the finals starting tonight. All of them are strong contestants, so it's anyone's game.

Two night total determines the winner.

Colin was basically a non-starter last night...I wonder if Adam (or is it Evan) will be in the champion first spot tonight?

May have been Tuesday night when NONE of the contestants knew who was the President of the United States in 1944...one guessed Truman another said Eisenhower (I think), and the third contestant wisely kept her mouth shut.

Formidable competition for Mr Adam Hyphenate ... but we shall see what happens.

He at least tried to change his answer to the correct one last night for Final Jeopardy....he got the GA written when he ran out of time.

I remember his Titus Andronicus story....but it didn't trump his snow day dance contest!

I bet Adam would have known that FDR was running for re-election in 1944!

by Anonymousreply 58402/13/2015

Adam seems to be a rage related headline in the near future -- what a freak! And he absolutely believes he is finally the smartest, most popular, coolest and prettiest person in his school! If I had a child or another living thing I cared about, they would never be allowed anywhere near him! He also probably has daily hissy fits in the teacher's lounge. "Oh, so you think you're so great? You were a Jeopardy finalist, also? I think not! I fart in your general direction!"

by Anonymousreply 58502/13/2015

Adam was nearly reduced to tears.

A very difficult Final Jeopardy.

All in all a good game, but the girl with the Big Bazookas was too fast on the trigger.

And Adam didn't get any Double Jeopardy wagers to help him along.

He may have some rage headlines in his future, perhaps he will wear his bowtie and start going out on auditions again.

I can see him playing Richard in a Little Theatre Production of "A LION IN WINTER."

by Anonymousreply 58602/13/2015

Funny, I thought he handled things fairly well. He is a definite attention whore - for sure! I realize he wasn't the answer, but all I could think of was Cabot, not Hudson. Alex's little speech about the "best teachers to date" fell hollow to these ears.

HATED the bow tie ... and now he teaches math? Middle gal had the best personality. Now, it's back to the Maidenform Maiden, right?

Or was it the guy?

Monster Tits took it, r588.

She had a slim lead going in to Final Jeopardy. All 3 missed the Final Jeopardy question, but with small wager today she lost the least. And of course she had a good lead from Day 1, so it was all hers.

We'll see her again in the Tournament of Champions.

And Monday we get regular contestants again. So we go from Monster Tits to Ol' Saggy Tits, our returning champion coming back with no bra.

by Anonymousreply 59102/14/2015

At least he lost on a Friday and won't have to face his students until Monday.

I hope they didn't decorate the room too much before they left for the weekend.

Adam would probably walk into the room full of balloons and streamers, throw his briefcase at the blackboard, and start tearing them down, all the while cursing Alex Trebek.

He will, of course, cash the $25,000 check quickly.
