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.

'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.

Truman was not a bad guess, given that the person sent a congratulatory wire, and said he was surprised.
|by Anonymous||reply 30||06/20/2018|
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 Anonymous||reply 31||06/20/2018|
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.

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?

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.

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 knew Mozart (took music history courses in college), but the idea that it's' a new concept that he died of strep throat instead of poison is ridiculous. He was always thought to have died of illness--although I went to college so long ago that maybe the poison idea was recent theory that I"m too old to know about.
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. The new champ seems a bit like a young Edie McClurg to me. I can kind of get having two best friends, but it does seem like a strange concept at first.

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.

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.

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.

I like Buzzy and his updated 30's Hollywood sartorial style. His tie/shirt /jacket combo worked very well tonight. He can become a bit full of himself and, as Alex seems to know, it's a good idea to rein that galloping ego in now and then.
I was beginning to wonder if Jason was ever going to shake Buzzy's hand at the end but eventually he did. Buzzy was a gentleman in the face of Jason's reluctance. I suspect that he finds it hard to lose as well.

Buzzy looked so dapper. That was quite an exciting game! I loved the back and forth between Buzzy and Jason, like a tough tennis match.

I didn't 't think Jason was ignoring Buzzy.

Well, I for one enjoyed seeing cutie Alan again. He seemed to be clearly overwhelmed at the end of the match when he took the lead. It was touching to see Alex take his hand and reassure him.

Alex really pisses me off. He shows so much favortism towards some, and not others.
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!!! It could have been solar or lunar eclipse, but Alex not only ignores that, but answers the fucking question for him!!
That's just fucking bullshit.

There's not that many of them so he might be. I'm guessing he's in a chorus though, not a soloist. Anyway, hope he loses soon.

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.
