Jeopardy Part 12

Bring back David the eager-to-please twink!

Hey Jeopardy fans--there seem to be two part 12 threads. We must consolidate.

Anyway, for the Matt Jackson fans among you (I was not one--even though he was kind of a genius, but so obnoxious)---the judge who sent Paul Manafort to jail today is Matt's mother, Judge Amy Berman Jackson. Just thought I'd mention this interesting bit of trivia. I looked up his parents when he was on the show out of curiosity.

How ticked am I that my local station cut out in the middle of Final Jeopardy, so not only do I not know the answer to the "islands" question, I don't know how everyone scored/placed.

Ascension Island was the answer.

'Jeopardy!' winner could get prison for sneaking into emails

A seven-time "Jeopardy!" winner who taught history at a small Michigan college faces up to five years in prison for sneaking into the email accounts of other professors, administrators and students.

Stephanie Jass, who taught at Adrian College in southern Michigan, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Lenawee Circuit Court to a charge of unauthorized computer access. Her sentencing is scheduled for July 20.

Authorities said Jass logged into other people's email accounts without permission over a four-day period last year after the college reset everyone's passwords and assigned everyone the same temporary password. Another professor learned what Jass had done and told school officials.

State police wrote in a report that the professor told a detective that Jass had a document that listed "notes and comments and problems" of faculty members, according to the Jackson Citizen Patriot.

The 48-year-old Jass, of Tecumseh, was later fired.

"Privacy rights are a fundamental principle of our American democracy and Adrian College stands with those who protect these rights," the school said after Wednesday's plea.

Jass' seven-episode "Jeopardy!" winning streak in 2012 was a record at the time for a female contestant. It was later broken.

Defense attorney Raymond Correll said in court Wednesday that he intends to seek a delayed sentence which would push back Jass' sentencing to see how she follows bond conditions set by a judge, according to the Daily Telegram of Adrian.

Couldn’t get FJ at all. Even when the first one revealed Magic 8-Ball, I had to wait for Alex’s confirmation. Even after seeing her answer, it still wasn’t an “aha” moment.

Found it particularly difficult tonight between the Louvre category and the author’s category.

Truman was not a bad guess, given that the person sent a congratulatory wire, and said he was surprised.

by Anonymousreply 3006/20/2018

Truman is a ridiculous guess if you know anything about history--after all, there is the famous photo of Truman holding up the fake headline "Dewey defeats Truman" (since we know that didn't happen, right?) The photo is famous because the headline was WRONG! And Truman is holding it with a huge grin on his face, which should reinforce in anybody's mind that Truman was the winner. Anybody should know that Dewey didn't win in 1948. So you know that it HAS to be Dewey who was surprised (because he was supposed to win according to the polls) and would have sent a telegram to the actual winner, Truman. Idiotic guess from those two women since certainly Jeopardy contestants should memorize the Presidents at least. Proves how much better educated Canadians are (the Jeopardy winner). I'm American, but I at least learned how to read and think logically for some reason.

by Anonymousreply 3106/20/2018

R31 Calm down, Junior. It would have been possible that Truman sent the telegram after Dewey was incorrectly announced as the winner, then was surprised to find out that was a false call. It's a stretch but possible. Even if you disagree with this logic, you need to relax.

Thanks, r32, Truman might have sent a telegram and was certainly as surprised as anyone. Junior is a condescending prisspot.

by Anonymousreply 3706/21/2018

I'm a bit confused that Ali became a citizen so recently, if he speaks completely fluent English with a heavy North American accent. I was struck by his strange pronunciation of the word participle, which I don't think was necessarily a Canadian variation.

I was hoping for Tyler, mostly to avoid Alex making another Canadian fawning gesture in the future. But, I must admit Ali is a nice guy and knows a lot, so he's better than say Matt Jackson. The lady really got lost in the shuffle here.

Had no idea of final whatsoever, and have never heard of The Surprise Symphony before. I guessed 1812 Overture, figuring that perhaps it had been written earlier, and the historical reference was added later?

Young Sheldon reminds me of Jack from Will and Grace.

I guessed Adelaide as well, figuring the top three cities were Sidney, Melbourne, and Perth. Allie just happens to know a lot. Middle guy needs a personality injection as he seemed both dull and nervous at the same time.

Gabe may have been unemployed, but I could figure out ways that he could earn quite a lot of money.

Once again, Alex's introductory fawning was truly nauseating.

Alex was devastated that the girl didn’t know the answer in FJ today. I was embarrassed for the new gay champ.

Glad the Canadian champ is done, though. Was on my nerves.

by Anonymousreply 5706/22/2018

I was pretty surprised she didn't know the final answer either, as I got it and movies are definitely not my strong point.

I was a bit confused as if Jordan is Jewish, wouldn't his great-grandfather have perished, unless I suppose he returned to Poland after the war to start over or something, which would be very very rare considering the level of anti-Semitism there that was in effect. At first I thought perhaps the lisp was a speech impediment, and then realized I was being just too naive.

I'm afraid the gal was just an embarrassment to us as a nation. Oh well, I'm sure her python loves her. Unfortunately, what I dislike about Ali was the Canadian thing, and we're likely to have yet more fawning ahead. Ugh! Alex's joking about it in his intro did NOT help.

Speaking of gay contestants, the WOF winner pinged a lot to me, girlfriend and all. Straight or not, he and Jordan made for a real dorky double-header.

by Anonymousreply 5806/22/2018

Ali was having a mild tantrum after each incorrect response near the end of DJ.

Miss USA did admirably after a very slow start, no excuse for blowing such an easy FJ.

The new champ will probably be another one day wonder.

I'm so mad that neither one of my faves won today, although I'm happy for Kelly. She must have thought she was out of the game at the beginning.

I love how Alex shaded the contestants by saying, "you missed three in a row. that doesn't happen often." haha

When you pronounce letters that aren't there, and don't pronounce letters that are there, I question whether that should be considered an accent.

by Anonymousreply 7606/26/2018

The "hundret" lady is from Mississippi--a rural town in the middle of nowhere. She could have had a lot worse accent. In fact, she didn't really sound that southern, more midwestern to me, which was interesting, so maybe she was raised somewhere else. I bet she loses tonight. I think she was lucky with the final.

I have no idea why people liked Jordan's looks--I thought he was actually rather homely, although he seemed like a nice enough and smartish guy. There's no accounting for taste, including mine natch.

For some reason I can't explain I kind of like the librarian guy. I don't find him attractive I hasten to say (oh please), but he knows a lot and has a certain kind of dignity, which a straight guy who is a librarian probably needs, His clothes are hideous however.

The curse of living on the Left Coast is that you guys came up with clever quips before I could see the show. I was more struck by the American part than 1896, but it really is a twofer along with Rasputin. I guessed Stowe, but was strongly tempted by Alcott.

Our Canadian boy seemed quite the prick to me the way he bragged about finding the mistake. Something tells me he was one of those kids in high school that always ate alone.

Ryan's got an energetic puppy-dog quality until the game starts and then his intensity and focus soars. The flash of anger he displayed when Alex, within the rules, wouldn't allow him to change his answer shows that he needs to learn how to harness that emotion. To his credit he recovered quickly by jumping to the big payout answers and performing successfully. After winning three in a row he shifted to a $400 answer and one could sense that his momentary crisis was over. I enjoy watching high intensity chance taking players like him but one watches knowing that the final reckless crash could happen at any time.

I got FJ so quickly (and you folks know my track record with FJ, hint: not good) that I was second-guessing myself. For some reason I immediately thought Carter and Reagan and said 1980. Then I was going wait, 84, no, 88 Dukakis and...time’s up.

And R261, Alex isn’t uneven. In Jeopardy and DJ rounds, they have the allotted time to correct themselves (which is counted down on their podium). In the Daily Doubles, it is the first response you give. Alex should’ve been more explanatory in his comment when he said, “You can’t change your response after [bold]I’ve ruled you incorrect.[/bold]” I didn’t care for that comment, but that’s just me. He should have said, “I’m sorry, we must accept your first response.” No other player has an option to answer the Daily Double, as opposed to the other rounds.

Justin was such a fool.

Do these people not check the scores during the game? THe guy was in the lead, towards the end. Why answer questions that you're not sure of??? He lost something like $3600 in just the last minute of the game, by giving incorrect answers. Sooooo dumb.

That gave Ryan the chance to pull ahead and win. Ugh!

And yes, Michelle's way of speaking was one of the most annoying things I've seen on Jeopardy in a very long time.

You’re not alone, R267. While she’s probably a very nice lady, her voice went through me like curry chicken. I was cringing.

And I also wanted to throw my remote at the screen twice, once when Ryan pulled his most arrogant, douchebagiest (not a word) move that others have mentioned and, as R275 pointed out, when the chubby dude kept ringing in. At one point he owned both of them.

And, no surprise, I did not get FJ. I stupidly and immediately said “Airport ‘77.” No idea what I was thinking.

by Anonymousreply 28507/21/2018

That show was a clusterfuck. I'm surprised that no one commented that Ryan said "Jews $1600" in the Jewish Americans category. I thought that there would be some controversy about that.

Then there was when the champ gave the answer "Erdogan" with the g-sound, when Alex specifically said the "G" was silent. Then the champ was like, "whatever, keep going," and Alex pushed back and said, "the G is SILENT." Rofl. That was very uncomfortable, but Alex let him get away with it.

Okay, howcome no one mentioned this?

On Thursday's show, it was the question right before the commercial break. The category was "Classic Songs' First Lines," and the answer was, "You never close your eyes anymore, when I kiss your lips."

Ryan answered, "You lost that lovin' feeling," and it was wrong. HOWEVER, Alex corrected him instantly and say, "oh you're so close, it's YOU'VE lost that lovin' feeling."

But guess what??? Alex didn't give the other two contestants a chance to give the correct answer. When someone gets the answer wrong (like Ryan did), Alex is supposed to let the other two contestants have a chance to give the correct answer. But Alex didn't do that. He immediately corrected Ryan, and DID NOT give the other two contestants a chance to answer correctly.

I'm surprised that I'm the only one that caught that. I thought that Alex would make some mention of it after the break, but he didn't.

So does that mean the other two contestants get to come back for another show? Alex obviously fucked up, and something has to be done about it.

Watch the episode, and see what you think. It's the part right before the first commercial break in the Jeopardy round.

I cringed at his Jews mention, and noticed that Alex is wildly inconsistent in cutting folks off as wrong. They owed the challengers the correct answer money for not letting them try. Was also surprised that Ryan was able to buzz in twice for the same question - another awkward moment.

by Anonymousreply 28907/21/2018

I think Alex was happy to be rid of Ryan. After losing all his money on his first Daily Double attempt, Ryan said something like "Let's make it a double again" when he uncovered another DD. Alex responded something like "well, if you get it right."

Alex isn't above a cunty remark, but it seemed like he had a few towards Ryan the last couple of days. He zinged him when he tried to change a Double Jeopardy answer again.

I had picked up on the "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" response too, but I feel like I never know the exact rules of when people can change answers, rephrase in form of a question, and things like spelling on FJ.

Buzzy had a question in which the correct answer was Chevre, and Buzzy answered "Chev." Well of course, that's how most anglo-speaking people would answer it, and Alex glares at him and says, "Chev Ruh." Buzzy still got the points, thankfully.

But then he got docked on another question for adding an "s" to the end of the answer, as did Austin. And they both got deducted on their scores.

And then you have the asian guy who answers "eclipse," and Alex finishes his sentence by saying, "Correct! Solar eclipse." And I'm like, what the fuck???? Alex should have said to be more specific!!!

Agreed that Doug has outstayed his welcome. My thought during the show was "I hope all the guys who thought Austin, and others, were annoying aren't giving Doug a pass." That final move of his had me reaching for the vaudeville hook.

I did think one of them would get it; surprising that none of them did. Don't like Doug much either. He has a very high speaking voice-wonder if he is a countertenor.

I thought of Moses right away then thought it couldn’t possibly be that easy.

Hammurabi came to mind as well. 💁🏻‍♀️

Shawn Mendes was a clue! I almost came from excitement.

FJ was quite easy. Surprised that only the champ got it.

by Anonymousreply 53810/09/2018

Ummm ... I didn't know Final.

I was struck by the fact that her incorrect guess of Armenia was a weird synchronicity in that Amharic and Armenian both use the same unusual script!

Alex, Tuesday's champ, is adorably hot. Jen had a deeper voice than I do. Then again, Alex could make me squeal.

by Anonymousreply 54010/10/2018

I find Alex to be anything but hot. He's too damn pleased with himself. He reminds me of the many young actors in recent commercials who play 'experts' who lecture the bovine populace on the wonders of whatever they're selling.

by Anonymousreply 54110/10/2018

Yay, Alex! He wins again, in a blowout! I think he's f'in adorable.

Mary was acting like such a slut. She was obviously flirting with every guy on stage, like a dog in heat! I nearly expected her to strip off her clothes and start banging them, one by one.

What the fuck was wrong with her? She seemed smart enough. No need to act like a whore when you've got brains, girl.

by Anonymousreply 54210/10/2018

Agreed that he is adorable, and she came off basically as trash.

by Anonymousreply 54310/10/2018

Was she wearing a wig? She kept tossing her hair and pulling it back, and generally fought with it the whole show. It was like something she wasn't used to which made me wonder if it was fake.

by Anonymousreply 54410/10/2018

Mary Adolph? What in the hell kind of name is that?

Plus, she looked like a hooker.

Straight people are so dumb. FJ was pretty obvious.

The other two hadn't heard "What a day this has been......"

FJ was a gift. Plus, Lerner and Loewe didn't write that many shows.

The bearded guy looked familiar. Had he been on before?

by Anonymousreply 54910/11/2018

The opus of Lerner & Loewe is not common knowledge to younger straight people.

I am familiar with Brigadoon, but still couldn't come up with the answer based on the clue.

I'm getting the impression they should put the champ in the dictionary as the picture under metrosexual.

by Anonymousreply 55110/11/2018

I love the current champion, Alex. He is a nerd in the very hottest way possible.

I'll also bet that he has a smoking rock hard body underneath those sweaters he wears.

Plus, he just seems like a really nice guy.

by Anonymousreply 55210/11/2018

True, R550, and more than a few young gays in the same situation.

Yes, Alex is sweet but I'm ready for a new winner.

We haven't had a Canadian on in a few days. I wonder what's up with that?

by Anonymousreply 55510/12/2018

Alex has a really tiny body (like a young teenager) and a rather wide head--interesting. Wonder if he looks like that in person. He's very smart though. I wish him well--he's pleasant enough. The last two multiple winners have been quite bearable (I can picture the last guy but can't remember his name). Are they gonna have a TOC this year or is it just going to be their special new team contest in November is it?

by Anonymousreply 55610/12/2018

Here I thought you guys would be all hot for the TV doc in his category?

Not a fan of the new champ, who seems somewhat obnoxious.

Final I found fairly easy.

by Anonymousreply 55710/12/2018

I wish that Alex had won. I was hoping to see him in the Tournament of Champions.

But hey, he won almost a hundred grand, so good for him.

by Anonymousreply 55810/12/2018

Me too, r558. The guy that won looks too much like a Broadway actor for me. Easiest final ever. It inspired me so much I watched the Ronald Coleman version again for the nth time. I always wonder if Miss Pross was able to make it out of France.

Who is that hottie Doctor? I was doing things and didn't pay close attention.

R560

During his residency, Stork appeared on Season 8 of The Bachelor. During the season finale of the show, Stork chose schoolteacher Sarah Stone, who coincidentally lived only a few blocks away from his Nashville residence. However, only one week after the show's pre-taped finale aired, the couple announced that their relationship was already over. He completed his residency, then practiced medicine in the emergency departments at Vanderbilt and a hospital in Colorado.

Stork is a host on The Doctors, a Los Angeles-based daytime medical/talk show, beginning with its debut in September 2008 and continuing into its 10th season (2017–2018). On the show, Stork leads a panel of three other physicians from different fields (pediatrics, plastic surgery and obstetrics/gynecology) who discuss health issues and answer audience questions. The idea came from a series of segments that were featured on Dr. Phil, to which Stork was also a frequent contributor.

Oh, R561, thank you.

He is very handsome. Although seeing he was on those worthless shows, kind of dampens my impression of him.

On The Doctors, they often find ways for Travis to get shirtless.

WOF - Jeffrey seems very gay (and cute!)

That yellow jacket on creepy champion Alan looked ridiculous. It didn't even fit him.

FJ was incredibly easy.

WOF - Pat looked scared to death of Jessica and her family.

by Anonymousreply 56610/16/2018

WOF: she looked like a total freak.

I'm growing quite tired of the champ, but the Interpreter in the middle was quite dull, and the martial arts dyke while being probably a nice person lacked a lot of pizzazz herself. So, for me this was kind of a nothingburger night.

by Anonymousreply 56710/16/2018

The current champion is too smug for me, and I fear he's going to be with us for a while.

by Anonymousreply 56810/17/2018

I don't mind Alan (except his weird mustache) and I was really glad Prairie (Prairie?--who is named Prairie?) didn't win. Her arrogance and innate bitchiness bounced out of the screen. Bland Alan is better. I

Prairie was a pill. And for someone who had to learn dance for capoeira, she should have known Terpsichore.

R574, add white hair and a larger mustache and he would look a lot like Sam Elliott.

Good point, r580.

It looked like Alan was going down tonight, but he pulled it out, big time.

I don't want to see that ill fitting yellow jacket again.

Kudos to the woman with the 52" waist for giving him some fierce competition.

Bill Hader will look like champ when he loses his hair and adds 40 years.

When I saw Erik's picture on the Jeopardy site prior to the game I thought 'nerd' .

He is a bit of a nerd but to my surprise he's also cool, even sexy. The afro is a hoot. Hopefully he'll hang around for a while.

I hate the hair, but he does seem like a nice guy.

Final was easy once I realized that the words were definitely Japanese, not Korean.

Erik also has a really sexy voice. But the hair…the hair HAS to go. I perceive he's a really hot guy, but with that hair it's impossible to tell.
