Jeopardy 10 — Let the merriment continue

Time for a new thread.

It's been so log with the TOC that I can't even remember who the current champion is.

by Anonymousreply 111/20/2017

I made a point of remembering that the last regular show was three wimmens. The guy tonight has a cute picture.

Interesting how we hit 600 as the TOC ended!

Wow, Kara is just...insufferable.

by Anonymousreply 311/20/2017

Really good one was a drag on the tempo!

Eric!!!! Wouldn't mind if he stayed around awhile. FJ was difficult for me.....knew it when I heard it. A couple of categories were stretching it.....

Is everyone going to try to be "on" now? Is Austin the new benchmark?

by Anonymousreply 411/20/2017

We all have our strengths here. I got final right off the bat before I even finished reading the question; then again, I choke completely on a lot of plays and films that folks find as gimmees. I was rather surprised when he ended up mentioning a wife, as his jazz hands intro lead me to believe ... otherwise. Such a touchy-feely fellow he is, too.

by Anonymousreply 511/20/2017

Funny: I thought "Albania" in the clue made the FJ pretty much a giveaway. R4, I reaaallly hope Eric wasn't mugging in his introductory shot because Austin made it the latest thing.

I wouldn't be surprised if Austin, Alan, and maybe Buzzy could all be plotted somewhere on the autism spectrum. I'm not sure Austin could help the mugging -- might have been a his response to nerves.

by Anonymousreply 611/20/2017

Whatever Eric used to cure his pizza face, it worked like a charm!

by Anonymousreply 711/21/2017

I say enough already with the cute gestures and mugging. The contestants should all be told to SHUT UP during the game unless they are giving answers. Any cute shit they want to express can be done during the interviews, which Alex is extremely adept at shutting down. The only thing they should be allowed to do is write something on their FJ screen - especially if they are in a losing position. Unlike so many others, JEOPARDY has always been an intelligent and dignified show and this bullshit needs to GO.

WOF and J were pre-empted in my area for a local Christmas "talent" show. It wasn't until it was almost over when I realized I could watch it on my local MeTV channel. I only got to see hopefully it was a great game!

Ugh - can't stand her! Poor Wilbur losing like that, too. Nice northeastern dig at L. A. folks from Eric.

WOF OT: Big Boy pinged to me.

by Anonymousreply 1211/21/2017

I guess I don't understand the rules. To me, Wilbur got the answer. Would he have gotten credit if he had written "Sgt. Pepper" and stopped right there?

What's the difference between that and only writing a person's last name?

by Anonymousreply 1311/21/2017

I think when it's a title, it has to be exact. You couldn't say "Gone with the W" and been correct; or Mona L for the DaVinci painting. Perhaps they instruct the players on this point beforehand? I thought Wilbur may just have run out of time.

The purple reign of terror continues. Some of the categories were a bit awkward....but the contestants were game.

Military girl was smart. Bartender was a lost cause.

The interviews must have been VERY awkward.....the editing was obvious in all three.....

I think Wilbur was cheated also. I think they should allow him to come back. I can't stand her purple hair either.

by Anonymousreply 1711/22/2017

As a Seattlite, I find her hair dye actually fairly subdued or conservative, more blue than actual purple, which some folks color their locks in honor of University of Washington. She lost me at robotics team during her interview.

Poor Grandpa Jim... past it and didn't know it. Sadly, I took the point of the military lady's story to be that she was hip, not square, didn't quite work.

One of the poorer games we've had in a while, although we've just come off a couple of weeks of Champions which may skew it a bit. Final was a freaking total giveaway, so I was still mildly shocked that neither of the challengers got it.

by Anonymousreply 1811/22/2017

Agree Wilbur was cheated. They knew that he had enough of the correct answer to count.... Just for comparison, today’s daytime jeopardy final had a clue that was obvuisky Benedict Arnold but the “winner” just wrote “Arnold”. Alex accepted it!! Could’ve been Arnold Swarzenegger he was going to write!! Crazy

Gosh, have you guys stopped watching because you're boycotting the tropical shirts or something?

I mentioned I was good at geography, so I did get final. I also knew Nizhny Novgorod, but realistically figured that was rather a tough question.

I wrote off old man Hilary at first, but he did better than I had expected him to. The chorus lady struck me as being very much down with the homos, so I wouldn't have minded her winning either.

WOF: the trucker'queue was something, but any of you notice his best friend in the audience? I really wanted to see him onstage!

R38 I thought the same thing. Grape Soda was very lucky the challengers didn't know the FJ answer and messed up their wagers.

I, too, was astounded at what they DIDN'T know! I liked the categories. At least there wasn't one that was full of "video" clues....those are useless. I wish they would get rid of the crew that travels around and tapes those things.

Nice grape flavored tie on the returning champ, and I am looking forward to a GOOD game tonight.

Gal did a nice comeback and Shaggy English Teacher started well, but faded in the stretch....his hair was ALMOST disturbing in its abundance.

Fun game......Alice's voice was most annoying. Lisa gave it the old college try, but I think she was slow on the buzzer.

FJ was a giveaway, so the wagering was crucial. Good on Gilbert Bates.....I mean....Kyle for winning. Not sure he will be as lucky with some fast buzzer competition....we shall see?

by Anonymousreply 5412/04/2017

Kyle looks so Nashville with that tie and sweater. No, for me , the final wasn't a giveaway,because I haven't been exposed to children's lit for years. There are many finals all three missed that I knew, but I didn't know this one.

Alice sounded like a Valley Girl to me, although she knew her stuff, I'll grant her that.

Dimples Matt started strong and then faded in the stretch. Kim had a mean teacher face.

It was a good seemed like Kyle was fading and he was not on track during the first round, but he picked up quickly in the DJ round.

The last few days, the interviews have been strangely edited - as if there was too much NOTHING said or that the producers were trying to salvage something from pieces of conversation.... FJ was a mystery to me, I thought of Napoleon because of the years....but nothing came to me....

I wonder what color sweater and tie Kyle will wear tonight?

by Anonymousreply 5912/06/2017

All I could think of for yesterday's final was the Congress of Berlin. I was traveling so just watched it now via YouTube. All three of the interviews were indeed strangely flat. Kim was in trouble early on as there weren't going to be enough Old People's questions for her to break out. Matt's resentment of Kyle's late breakout was incredibly obvious.

Kyle - projecting a different image

Saw yesterday's show on YouTube just now. I now imagine Kyle as wearing Eau de Cookies cologne, with all sorts of Keebler Elf memorabilia in his bachelor pad; anyone else concerned he's going to start crying any show now?

Doctor was quite butch, I'll bet he's not very well liked by the nurses and staff will have to deal with him. Lady's color scheme was interesting, although Halloween was a while ago. Man, Latin club tours of Europe, that guy is really a first-class dork. Not that there's anything wrong with that ...

I did not get Kim Novak at all, but then again the only thing I know about Hitchcock is Tippi Hedren in the birds. Final took a couple of moments, but kicked in well before the time was up.

The sweat on the top of the challenger's shaved head made it look as though he had just come in from a rain shower. Bragging about being accepted to all the Ivy League colleges, eventually going to Harvard of course, doesn't exactly endear you to the audience.

Tonight, again, I noticed something annoying that Johnny Gilbert does. When he announces how much the current champion has won thus far, if the person has won, say, $25,401, he says it as "Twenty five thousand, four hundred and one dollar," rather than "dollars."

As for WOF, Pat didn't seem all that uncomfortable with the guy to me. I liked the brother they showed in the audience, who is more my type, what can I say? I was horrified that they might actually send the poor f a g to Jamaica, which would have been a very bad idea.

Actually, his wife looked like exactly the type of plain Jane who would marry her gay best friend. (see: Tim Kaine)

All I could think of for final was Old Man and the Sea, and I knew Hemingway was long gone by then. Sorry to see the good doctor go, she seems like a really nice person.

Not sure about him being FTM.....but we shall see....

YES Jeremie on WOF was too precious. First time I can remember that ONE contestant won all three toss-ups AND every game! He ended up with $68,000+. And all three of his brothers in law hugged him.

New champ seems to really WANT it. Wouldn't mind if he stuck around awhile. FJ was easy if you read it.....we studied the blimps....and I remember the Akron that crashed....well...I remember reading about it.

AND Ales gave the champ's winnings at the beginning of the show using the plural DOLLARS!

by Anonymousreply 11512/15/2017

I caught right away that Akron was a hint about blimps.

I am willing to consider Brennan as a T boy, but the deep voice gives me pause for declaring that as a total certainty. Bryce on the other hand, seemed just, not femme but wimpy; I guess that I was wondering if it's a case of denial or immigration fraud there?

New champ suits up a dream; he has sort of just an overall gay everything vibe, as opposed to hands, voice, etc.

by Anonymousreply 11612/15/2017

I'll start with Alex wearing pullups. A joke (I didn't get) or an admission? Either way - oy!

Love the new champ - a few weeks of her would be fine by me. Poor Kiersten ... knew a lot, but filled their recently lacking behemoth quota. Craig needed to learn that what you can wear in predominantly doesn't always work on TV, as the shirt and tie were both too pastel metallic. Besides that, there is just something "off" in general there.

Final was obvious.

I was kind of hoping Kiersten would get the "Hoss" answer since she looked like him. This was a great even game with some interesting categories.

As I have mentioned many times, I am a huge dork fan myself, but wasn't as smitten with Ben as I might have been. Something about him just struck me as being a very boring person. That having been said, tonight was a real tragedy for me as I took a true dislike to the new champ right away. Outgoing champ is one of the classiest I can remember in a long time.

As for commercials, they've plugged other stuff before, but it was the running characters across the screen perhaps that made it highlighted as an endorsement.

I can't stand how Alex fake acts like he doesn't know what the contestants put as their answers and wagers to Final Jeopardy just before revealing the results. "Oh I can tell by the look on Johnny's face he's not happy!" I know it happens every single show, but it's a pet peeve of mine.

by Anonymousreply 12412/19/2017

Did my ears play tricks on me or did Johnny say "dollarS" last night when introducing the champ? I thought I heard it, but I'm not sure.

Yes, sorry to lose Denise. She was very good and had some class. New champ (Kate?) - seems like a very determined broad with a strong jaw! Ben just couldn't make any correct guesses.....although I thought they were buttercups, too.

FJ was easy if you thought a moment.......GUERNICA? That was pretty funny. I thought at first it was going to be about ME!

Hoping we have a new champ tonight.....time will tell. Some interesting NEW categories as well.....

I did kind of want Lisa Lisa to win.....and I think she was cheated out of some money when AT accepted her "wrong" answers.....but she did have a bit of an impediment going.

FJ was obvious - once I saw the answer. LOL....and again some weirdly worded clues....and insufferable movie guy - mush mouth.....

Come on, contestants, let's send Kate back to the dugout.

Thought Alex messed up the Stars and Stripes answer. Instead of pausing and letting Lisa think for a second and complete her question, Alex inserted Forever right away and told her she was right.

Final was a giveaway for me, I knew it immediately. Justin's tie was indeed distracting. I didn't find him particularly hot, and I'm the one who has a soft spot for dorks. I guess it was because I thought his story was rather lame, and I just somehow got the feeling that he was an anti-ping with a girlfriend.

'Jeopardy' on hold while Alex Trebek recovers from brain surgery

BURBANK, Calif. (WLS) -- Tapings of "Jeopardy" have been put on hold while host Alex Trebek recuperates from surgery.

Trebek, 77, underwent surgery in December after he hit his head during a fall, which caused some bleeding outside the brain.

The surgery was successful. Trebek is expected to make a full recovery.

"Jeopardy" tapings are expected to resume in mid-January.

Thanks for clarifying the Corvette question for me, although that fact would not have helped me to get the answer as I know little about classic cars. My wild guess would have been the Dodge Charger.

Would be really interesting if somehow the doctors said that it would be quite a while before Alex comes back, he makes it clear he has no intention of retiring at this time, so they put Jimmy in as an interim host.

Where do you get the idea that no one is going to be able to sub for him if he has to be out for a very long time? I think that's up to the producers isn't it?

I was rather horrified at the end when Brandon was in shock that he'd won, instead of congratulationing him, Sean just stood there watching. I'm from Jersey originally, but that guy seemed to have all the personality of a slice of stale pizza. Wasn't wild about the Minnesota lady, but I would easily take her over him.

Though no Jeopardy champion, I didn't know the Marquis De Sade and Flaubert as answers. Rolled my eyes at final being yet another giveaway. Anyone else catch Alex's nasty dig at the writers?

Canadian here. Our beloved coffee shop started by a former Toronto Maple Leaf, Tim Horton, became a national chain known by the name Tim Horton's. Notice the possessive. First "store" was on Ottawa Street in Hamilton; forget what year but it was mid-60's.

So, when the girl in the middle replied to the clue, which happened to be in some "Getting Possessive" category, she said: "Who is Tim Horton?". I was sure she would be deemed incorrect by this season's picky judges. Even figured when Alex made the correction before Final that they would penalize her, but I was wrong.

I was able to guess final Jeopardy, but only because I'm a big Van Gogh fan and have been seeing a lot of stuff about him lately. The category name was too broad for most people. Like someone mentioned above, if it said 19th Century Artists or even 19th Century in France it might have narrowed the choices down a bit.

by Anonymousreply 39301/26/2018

Were there that many famous insane19th century Europeans to choose from? However, you guys regularly claim performing arts stuff as "(blindingly) obvious" when I don't know award winners, etc. I read a lot, but that doesn't help much with science or sports questions, let alone music and TV shows much past 2000.

Much of what we know about Vincent VG comes from the letters that he wrote to his brother Theo. Theo provided emotional and financial support to his brother. This is a well known "fun fact" in modern art history, and there was a movie about the two brothers. I was quite surprised that no one got this FJ.

Champ was a good loser - back to the tower with her! Happy to see that she won a goodly amount in her five day run.

It seems like they've had to adjust the scores a lot lately when they reconsider some of the answers. It throws off the whole game! If a question can have multiple correct answers, it's a bad question for this format. The contestants might have chosen other categories and may have lost the potential to find a daily double. Make a decision on the answer and that's it!

In the J.M. Barrie book, it was called "Neverland" not Never Never Land. I read it numerous times as a child. But apparently both are correct, since it was called Never Never Land in the stage play, which actually predated the novel (I just found out). I imagine they would have accepted either answer.

I suppose Jewish Rob really doesn't know much about the New Testament, if he thought there was a reference to Gibraltar in it. Final seemed easy, but I don't know is if I would call it exactly a giveaway.

Maybe Florence happened to get a lot of the right questions on the sample test? I felt from her first appearance that she was far too severe. I liked Kate a lot, wouldn't mind if she had won.

For some reason, I get the impression Rob's wife's family is very wealthy, similar to the Disney heir guy they had on a couple of years back. I was fixated during the show on his eyes, after all the comments you folks made.

Rob's blind guessing of Thanksgiving Day Parade for an event specified as March was rather embarrassing, so I had no problem with Alex chiding him for it. I was somewhat surprised that none of them got Urdu. Final seems very easy to me.

I did feel bad for Bryan who seemed like a genuinely nice guy. It was interesting to see Alex break from the usual protocol and shake hands with Bryan first. I wonder if he's feeling the same Rob-fatigue that I'm feeling.

Three's an essay on HuffPost by Austin Rogers about his life post-Jeopardy. It is smart and endearing and makes me like him all the more. Seems like someone I'd like to know.

by Anonymousreply 53002/22/2018

I think Alex doesn't care for so many lopsided games. Like us, he wants it 1/3 each with few, if any, complete passes on questions (though I hate football).

While his bitterness was unfortunate, Austin's success is a great role model for dorky (gay) kids.

Good for Alan. He appeared to be much quicker than Rob with the signal button.

by Anonymousreply 53202/22/2018

Poor Viola. Nobody remembers her, even after just one year.

by Anonymousreply 53302/22/2018

All I'm going to say is that Alan seems like a really nice guy, so congrats to him!

Was Rob wearing a rug?

by Anonymousreply 53402/22/2018

I liked Alan immediately, so glad he beat that smug Rob.

I'm half expecting someone to cry "Racism!" over none of the three remembering Viola's Oscar win last year.

by Anonymousreply 53502/22/2018

Alan is another "character" - but he seems to have the stuff to last a few days.

Goodbye, Rob!!! Or should I say "eybdooG!"

by Anonymousreply 53602/22/2018

I don't know if I'm more annoyed with the everyday 'adjustment of scores,' or all of the points left on the board because Alex spends so much time yammering during the round. Whether he's fawning over a champ, making an embarrassing attempt at humor, or speaking with a stereotypical foreign accent -- there are almost always several spaces left on the board. Especially when he notes there's only a minute left, and then just wastes the seconds and potential points by interjecting nonsense. Both of these things are game changers!

I don't know, I'm still bitter about them accepting the use of punctuation outside of the end quotation mark, as in, "Blah blah blah". It's just wrong, as it has been for centuries!

-- Take that, pointless bitchery!

by Anonymousreply 53702/23/2018

R537, I hate that contestants are allowed to give just a surname as a response, rather than a first and last name. It's so wrong.

by Anonymousreply 53802/23/2018

Ok,DL Queens, two days yet and not a mention of Alan's response of "Fred's Lube" to a Double Jeopardy clue?

He had no idea and he decided to give that response rather than be silent!

by Anonymousreply 53902/23/2018

Surprised nobody got final Jeopardy today. I knew it right away.

by Anonymousreply 54002/23/2018

I had absolutely no idea whatsoever of today's Jeopardy final; they're easy when you know them.

I recall the answer of Fred's Lube, but decided to let that very strange response slide rather than thinking about it more.

by Anonymousreply 54102/23/2018

Alan's desperation to find the Double Jeopardy clues is just as annoying as it was when Au-stin did it. And Alan doesn't have the half the personality or knowledge than that Champion did.

I thought surely the Blogger would know FJ - the Human Resources Gal was surprisingly good.

I forgot to mention Alan's practice buzzer - the toilet paper roller - which is actually a good idea!

I agree that Alex slows the game down with his "humor" and snarky long before the show is known as Jeopardy Starring Alex Trebek?

by Anonymousreply 54202/23/2018

I believe the toilet paper roll practice item was Rob's not Alan's?

by Anonymousreply 54302/23/2018

R543 you are 100% correct - that was Rob's invention!

Whew chemo brain......boys - get your colonoscopy - it may save your life.....even if it leads to radiation and chemotherapy and other complications. Take the twilight sleep and you won't even know it happened.....kind of like surprise anal.....

by Anonymousreply 54402/23/2018

R537, regarding the punctuation outside the question marks: I complained about this a few years ago and was told it’s acceptable in Canada, and therefore I should be quiet.

by Anonymousreply 54502/23/2018

R544, Which is preferable, surprise anal or anonymous anal?

One of tonight's guests is Jonah Platt. If this guy (below) is the same guy, then he's the brother of Tony winner Ben Platt.

Jonah is spicy.

Jonah seemed salty about losing by three dollars.

Jonah looks like a escort who escaped and put on a suit for a night.

He was indeed pissed, shaking his head at the very end.

by Anonymousreply 55202/26/2018

[R543], [R544], Rob sure acted as though he invented that practice trick, but I've seen it mentioned a couple of times before, and was surprised know-it-all Alex went along by acting as if it was a novel idea.

by Anonymousreply 55302/26/2018

I’m glad Alan lost. He was a bit insufferable. You know he’s watching at home in one of his “special” caftans.

by Anonymousreply 55402/26/2018

Jonah was pretty.

What Mary in the audience shrieked when the champ lost?

by Anonymousreply 55502/26/2018

Jonah was in the top ten hottest contestants of all time. The hottest of all time was Gordon from Vancouver who wore sweaters and liked to kayak.

by Anonymousreply 55602/26/2018

I figured you guys would like Jonah. I thought he suited up damned well, but yeah, he was anything BUT good-natured. I couldn't get past the feeling that Alan was a lesbian (FTM?). New champ is OK by me, very low key.

I thought the archeologist with the Eastern European name a couple of years back was hot, but what do I know?

by Anonymousreply 55702/26/2018

R552, and all the others commenting on Jonah's perceived disgust. My take on it: he was angry with himself for going for the $800 clue instead of the $1600 in the last category, when he had seized crucial control of the board. Both time and clues were running out, and he missed getting the gimme Double Jeopardy.

by Anonymousreply 55802/26/2018

I agree with R558.

by Anonymousreply 55902/26/2018

Glad Jonah Platt lost. He seems like a narcissist overly impressed with himself. He was a sore loser who didn't shake anyone's hands. Anyone with hair like that is obnoxious.

I'm surprised none of them knew about the Burj Khalifa.

by Anonymousreply 56002/26/2018

lmfao Jonah didn't take kindly to the criticism he's gotten on social media

as if he's the only contestant ever whose dream it was to win on the show but lost?

Unpleasant dude. After his brother's Tony win he must be feeling like the older brother who couldn't.

Laughed out loud at Maryann thinking "The Beverly Hillbillies" was a drama.

by Anonymousreply 56902/27/2018

Obviously no one thinks the Beverly Hillbillies is a drama, but the name Jethro only has one meaning to most people.

by Anonymousreply 57002/27/2018

I was raised very near Millington, Paul's accent sounds more like Staten Island to me. If they're going to wear a ribbon like that, they really ought to explain about it to the viewers. Final was, indeed, a trap as my first instinct was to say the Chrysler Building. All I could think of about their phone calls to London on Jeopardy, was that the family must be incredibly wealthy to afford that!

Tonight, I really, really wanted to hear your thoughts about the Wheel of Fortune champ? The married former ballet dancer pinged like high heaven to me, and I was distracted by the burning smell from my TV in flames.

I could've sworn that once before when there was a tie, BOTH players were on the following day.

by Anonymousreply 57903/01/2018

The tiebreaker question must be very new, as before the two contestants returned the next day with a third new person. I hate it!

Now I want to know what he looks like with his balding non-shaved head, though not for $5000. Not a huge fan of the champ, so it was hoping the other lady would win.

I got final immediately, so I don't understand why it was so tough, although the fact that they all blew it must mean something?

by Anonymousreply 58003/01/2018

I think there was a tiebreaker question before. But I felt bad for the other lady. She really deserved to come back. She was likable - and a good player.

by Anonymousreply 58103/01/2018

Horrible tiebreaking system. Just awful.

by Anonymousreply 58203/01/2018

There have been co-champions in the past. Did the producers not want to pay the matching amounts?

According to the Jeopardy website, this system has been used before in tournaments, but since that introduction this is the first time that it has been used in a regular game.

Hopefully some peeps will qualify.

by Anonymousreply 58803/02/2018

We must thank Buzzy and Austin for the need of every male contestant to make an ass out of themselves while trying to become a "character." I noticed mr. camper-champ didn't mention going back to family camp with any children or family of any sort. I envision he camped out near the showers a lot.

Jesse was "nerdy sexy" and if his prominent nose is any indication of what's down south, sign me up.

Thought FJ could either be Orson Welles or John Huston, went with Welles.

Don't forget that the online test is Tues, Wed. and Thur.

I wanted Jesse to win.

I thought of Henry Fonda. ☺️☺️

by Anonymousreply 59503/05/2018
