R5 The show was starting to lose its way even before Alex passed. Like you said, they keep trying to make contestants “stars” and now with all the celebrity guest hosts it’s turned into a circus. It doesn’t even seem to be about trivia anymore. Wish they’d get back to basics and hire an unknown host and quit trying to make the contestants “stars.”

I don't like the way he answers every person question with "What is...." rather than "Who is?" when the answer is someone's name, eg: "What is Noriega?", etc.

Maybe others do it all the time for all I know, but when he does it, it is literal violence.

Like Jennings, these fact knowers aren’t personalities though. The exact opposite traits. Which is why they need a charming, charismatic host. I liked Buzzy best so far.

LeVar Burton was just sad. One of the most pathetic hosts. So much drama to get a guest gig - and he wasn’t even good at it. How annoying. It was like he had never been in front of a camera before. Waste of people’s efforts.

I liked that Buzzy guy. He was charismatic, not a celebrity, unique and kind of interesting/decent looking - combined with ambitious, sharp and on top of things. I did like Andersen Cooper too - but unrealistic as LT host.

by Anonymousreply 55July 31, 2021 4:20 PM

Since Mayim's series was recently renewed, Buzzy is my "outside" bet, if Ken turns down an offer. His familiarity with "how Jeopardy works" over-rides the white male thing; he's great with nervous contestants, talking them down after near misses, etc. as he's been there. His surprise "belt buckle" studio appearance was a wierd stunt, but otherwise he's fairly even keeled.

by Anonymousreply 56July 31, 2021 4:45 PM

Aaron Rogers, Anderson Cooper and Mayim Bialik still have contracted gigs that still take up their time. Mike Richards was great, but he also has a gig as producer of "Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune". I think Buzzy or Ken probably did the best in terms of reading the questions well, having nice rapport and knowing how to deal with contestants (Buzzy did a masterful job of side-glance and otherwise ignoring a very sore loser) and otherwise keeping things moving. They would also fill in first names of answers for the home audience (unlike some others) plus they had a mostly up, positive attitude without being over the top. Dr. Oz and LeVar Burton were among the worst. Robin Roberts was quite nice -- I don't watch her tv show, but she came off as a lovely person, too.

Worst ‘Jeopardy!’ performance ever taints LeVar Burton’s long-awaited guest debut

What is an epic failure?

LeVar Burton’s “Jeopardy!” guest hosting debut ushered in a new low on the famed trivia game show.

Monday’s episode saw contestant Patrick Pearce record the lowest score in the program’s history — ending “Double Jeopardy” with -$7,400, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Burton, who has been a fan favorite to take over as host of the show following the death of Alex Trebek, had his first appearance somewhat overshadowed by Pearce’s unprecedented breakdown.

Pearce ended the first round of the game in the black with $200, but tanked in the next, making him ineligible for “Final Jeopardy,” and replacing Stephanie Hull’s -$6,800 2015 effort in the history books, the article said.

Matt Amodio of New Haven, Connecticut, capitalized on the California man’s poor performance to reportedly extend his four-day winning streak to $122,400.

The historic loss came as many excited fans tuned in to see the former “Reading Rainbow” star audition for the role many believed he is well suited for.

“Omg I never watch #Jeopardy. But tuned in last night to see Burton and wow what a bust,” one person tweeted.

“Wait, hold up. Did I (and probably a whole lotta other folks) just tune in for the first time in a LONG time to watch the lowest recorded score in #Jeopardy history? If so, now I feel even worse for him,” another said.

Burton has long campaigned to be made a permanent host, and more than a quarter-million fans have signed a petition calling on him to fill Trebek’s shoes.

“[In] 2013 I tweeted for the first time how much I would love to have that job when Alex retired,” Burton said on “The View” in April.

“More than anything, I am eager to put my skills up against those of anyone else in contention and then let the chips fall where they may.”

The “Star Trek: The Next Generation” actor continued his pitch to producers at the start of Monday’s episode.

“As a longtime viewer of the show, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to guest host ‘Jeopardy!’ and I’m proud to be here to honor Alex’s legacy, and I’m going to do my best to make sure that these talented ‘Jeopardy!’ contestants enjoy their moment here as well,” Burton said after being introduced by longtime announcer Johnny Gilbert, footage of the episode showed.

Trebek hosted the show from 1984 until his death in November 2020. Art Fleming led “Jeopardy!” in the 1960s and 1970s and is the show’s only other full-time host.

Burton will continue guest-hosting through Friday, according to the show’s website.

Blacks are screaming “racism!” because people don’t like LeVar. They scream everything is racism when in this case LeVar simply sucks and doesn’t deserve the job. Most people thought Robin Roberts and Bill Whitaker were both good, so there goes the racism excuse.

I'm not ready to go along with the theory that he's being fed the answers, but it's beginning to be a strange pattern that he almost always comes up with the correct answer within one second of timing out, again and again and again.

If I know roughly 2/3 of the answers, the challengers should as well. Seems like they're intimidated by him as lately there's been room for them to buzz in before he does.

Usually you can just give the last name, but it seems like there clues with the words "alliteration" or "this 3-named" person, where they sometimes call for the full name. It seems to be inconsistent -- sometimes they call out the contestant that they need more than the last name.

by Anonymousreply 162August 11, 2021 8:08 PM

I remember that many years ago a contestant tried that “start at the bottom” tactic — ages before James H. — and was doing dismally. Alex cautioned him about the answers at the top being easier and starting from the top might help. I think most contestants use that as their plan and aren’t comfortable challenging Matt in that fashion.

Matt does it for two reasons. First, to find the Double Jeopardy clues, and second, because it throws off his fellow contestants by dominating the game and building up earnings that become insurmountable. So far, it’s worked.

by Anonymousreply 163August 11, 2021 8:56 PM

Interesting theory, R206, which kinda agrees my theory of his being lucky as a factor. Jaws was incredibly obvious for a supposedly "tough" final-level question featuring Moby Dick as a hint.

I get what R198 means in that it often feels as though they're holding the clock for him, though if course they're not.

I'm assuming that EG stands for Eldergay, R205. A reference to lecherous old geezers looking forward to pretty young things. As someone who grew up with rabbit ears on a b/w TV, he's average looking. I found it rather odd for him to brag about being a "night guy" since he strikes me as anti-social.

Wouldn't surprise me if he lost within the first few games of the new season. This week's games were taped in late April or sometime in May. That means Matt will have had three full months to get lost in his brain and overthink things. Plus, he had to keep it all to himself, couldn't tell friends about his amazing run until now.

yes, and the PhD students make their own schedule, don't they? I thought they plan their own study.

A reasonable guess would be he's working on his thesis.

I never saw Ken Jennings as a contestant. Anyone know how he was finally beaten? I agree with the above posters about Holzhauer - he just seemed to give up.

I do see the young Tom Hanks comparison.

R258 - Emma won 3 games then lost the 4th.

But she made it into the Tournament of Champions and was one of the two contestants who competed with James for the grand prize (during which she lost and won "only" the $100,000 prize).

I'm not nuts about the new set, esp that night sky with the twinkling stars. I guess they're supposed to remind us that Alex is in the great beyond. There appear to be some kind of half curtains behind the contestants as well, which is distracting.

I think Matt looks extremely fuckable and would probably be a hell of a lotta fun in the sack. Or the kitchen counter. Or the tub....

Fun? He seems on-the-spectrum to me.

On the spectrum guys are up for anything. Trust me.

He has a nice smile, with dimples, when Mike is complementing him. I would like to see them both get a room.

MATT AMODIO IS DEAD TO MEEEEEEE!

What?

by Anonymousreply 271September 16, 2021 11:26 PM

Nah. He won again. Still in it. But this one was closer than I believe any other.

by Anonymousreply 272September 16, 2021 11:58 PM

Hope it rattled him!

by Anonymousreply 273September 17, 2021 12:00 AM

It was close, but not that close, his score, while low for him, was still triple what the nearest competitor earned

by Anonymousreply 274September 17, 2021 12:43 AM

He's wearing that ugly silver jacket again!

I don't believe he didn't know some of those answers that he got wrong! They were easy!

by Anonymousreply 275September 17, 2021 2:08 AM

Agreed, R275. Nobody got slow "poke"!

And he didn't know kickstarter?

by Anonymousreply 276September 17, 2021 2:11 AM

What the he'll happened? I stepped away from the TV right after the first round, and he was like $600 in the hole. By the time I came back during double jeopardy, he was at 30k and winning! Someone tell me.

by Anonymousreply 277September 17, 2021 2:13 AM

He got a second daily double which he bet everything and got the correct answer, so that helped a lot

by Anonymousreply 278September 17, 2021 2:38 AM

I became so tense that I kept forgetting to play the game. Glad Matt won.

by Anonymousreply 279September 17, 2021 3:19 AM

i find it really suspicious that he didn't know joe frasier. that's gotta be the easiest one, and there was a picture of him too!

by Anonymousreply 280September 17, 2021 5:19 AM

I think the audio implant in his head tilted for a moment.

by Anonymousreply 281September 17, 2021 11:52 AM

I didn't know Joe Frasier either.

by Anonymousreply 282September 17, 2021 12:24 PM

I hope Twitter sleuths are doing a background check and find evidence of that one time he watched Breakfast at Tiffany's, that old movie about making fun of Asians.

Which "he" do you mean? Ken has already been called out for being able-ist.

by Anonymousreply 284September 17, 2021 12:41 PM

But I did recognize the ultra-handsome Leon Spinks.

by Anonymousreply 285September 17, 2021 4:52 PM

R284 I meant the contestant. Aren't winning contestants eligible for online manhunts now?
