On the first night, he told Ken Jennings he scored higher in a trivia test. The following night, he said he beat both Jennings and James Holzhauer in another trivia contest. Last night, he said one of the Jeopardy superchamps was a fan of him.
I hope he whimpers away.

Oh god, he posted a screed to Facebook that was removed so he posted it to his blog.
He's so delusional-- he references a non-existent "angry brown man stereotype" and blames the viewing audience perception of his lack of grace and humor on racism.

I got Final also. However, that was guess work as I had never heard of this mnemonic, nor do I see a great use for it unless one is very seriously geographically challenged.
I did know Pizzaro died in Lima, and thought Charlemagne an unfortunate answer as Constantine was pretty much a giveaway. As someone from Southwest Florida, my heart broke when none of them knew about Hurricane Ian.

He said competing on camera didn’t make him nervous.

I was particularly shocked at the other two missing UVA's home town after Erin had all but given it away with "Charlotteville".
R8, probably they all remembered Hurricane Ian very well but blanked on the name. Me, too. There's so much hurricane coverage these days - when even a tropical storm warrants headlines if it crosses the US coastline - that the names sort of blur together. But your storm and the devastation is caused is not forgotten, believe me.

The signal device is not rigged, but you have to get used to the timing of the person who activates the answer lights. Sometimes that person waits until the host has completely read the clue, other times it's a nanosecond after, and sometimes it is as the host reads the last word. There are two columns of bright blue lights on each side of the clue board that light up to indicate to contestants that they can ring in. Since they tape five episodes in a day, if you sync with the answer indicator person early enough, you can ring in first every time and be practically unstoppable. If you know the correct answers, that is. I believe that Troy has mastered this staffer's rhythm.
I sat through an entire day of taping as a contestant waiting to go on stage, so I paid attention to everything. When I appeared, I had the signalling down, but, unfortunately, did not the answer to each clue I was first on. Ah, well.

He gets all the Daily Doubles because he always starts off with the $600 or $800 question in each category. The DD in the first round is usually in the $600-$1000 range.

Jake, is obviously fast on the buzzer and smart enough to best Troy. He may last a little while, but doesn’t seem like he’s an invincible super-champ. His ability to overtake Troy was the result of that second DD and the fact that FJ was extremely difficult. He got a few questions wrong and there were enough areas that he didn’t know to indicate that he has vulnerabilities.

Really, Jake was SO freaking quirky -- to put it kindly -- that I almost couldn't believe it. I wonder if the producers attempted to discourage his bizarre behavior. Or maybe they actually encouraged it, knowing it would engender lots of commentary, even if it was all negative. There is, after all, the theory that there is no such thing as bad publicity.

Goddard actually I feel kind of bad for thinking the lady that won yesterday was ugly she's just old and she's probably prettier ones but I was really cranky yesterday. The whole time that clear up about the astronaut though I kept saying Goddard but really his name is Alan Shepard but I did say Alvin so I totally got his s first name right. Also I've never heard of this list and so I need to look that up but I do remember when we play like this card game that had to have like two or maybe even three decks or maybe it depended on the number of players you had but it was called b******* and it was one of those games that like all the neighborhood kids would come to play with my mom and she just drink and smoke while these little Mormon kids were there she also swore a lot too and I'm sure their parents were scandalized. Also can Jeopardy just stop with the munch clues and O'Keefe like is it a requirement to have one other every week. I feel like they're right or meetings are probably like should we do an O'Keefe clue this week or Frida kahlo or will throw a curveball and do Diego what's his name but like God every time they need to be more creative.

And yes, we didn't "soak it in." We were "soaking in it." Very curious whether Ken misread it or whether the writer wrote it wrong. Seems like the writers room would have checked and double checked that clue for accuracy, so I suspect Ken read it wrong, transposing the "in" and "it."
It's not uncommon for us to only hear the clue being read aloud when there is a photo involved.

I am a semi-regular viewer, but obviously, I don't clearly remember what's normally done in these cases. In this particular case, it's obviously unfortunate that they didn't show the text on screen, because Ken screwed up his reading of the clue in such a way that many of us agree it might have caused one or more of the contestants not to come up with the correct response.

How so, R414? I’m sure he read the clue exactly as the writers had written it. His repetition of the Palmolive tagline came after the buzzer sounded indicating that the time was up (and no one rang in).

R421 - I thought second chances games were only for one-time contestants who achieved a really high score at the end of the game but were beaten by a long time champ who did even better (such as contestants who were up against Matt, Amy or Mattea).
Given that, Matthew doesn't need a second chance since he was already on five times.

No R425. He only won four times, which doesn’t guarantee him a TOC invitation. With all the long streaks though, four should easily get him in.
As for the second chance tournament, last year was the first time they did it. I’m sure it was because of the long streaks they didn’t have enough 4+ game winners. It was so successful that everyone assumes they’ll do it again. Does anyone know how many 4+ game winners they’ve had already this season? There are only 15 slots.

Also, my response @ R425 was to R421's comment: "I think Matthew will back for the second chance tournament."
That won't be the case because he's had 5 chances.

Yes, Peter Pan was obvious right away. Surprised all three didn't get it.
Also obvious was "All's right with the world."
Even though Matthew isn't guaranteed a spot in the Tournament of Champion because he didn't hit the five-wins mark, he still has a good chance of being in the Tournament because he won over $100,000. That's why we'll likely be seeing him again.

Was rooting for completely for Brad. Oslo did him in. He might have had a chance it he'd gotten Oslo. In fairness, I didn't think of Oslo either.
Then we hit the Sports category for Final and it was all over. I know virtually nothing about sports and clearly Brad doesn't either.
Maybe he'll make it into the Second Chances Tournament.

I have a suit thing, as well as glasses, so yeah I felt I needed to know more about Will's jizz. Which leads me to our champ ... It's not PC to say it, but as a homo I'm entitled, he seems to get faggier each appearance. Is his wife named Peg? What's with the deal of his saying "Me and a friend ..." Needless to say, I was very triggered by that
Rogers and Hammerstein? I didn't know whether to laugh or cry? Fannie Farmer, Sitka spruce, Little pitchers have big ears ... obvious to me.
Speaking of suit things, it's Mayim for the next several months, so goodbye to Ken who suits up well.

Humorless Will was desperately in need of a better fitted suit and dress shirt. Handsome guy though. I bet he has a well-sculpted hairy chest and tummy.

Will's reserve and bottled up personality had me thinking the most inappropriate things during tonight's game.
In a way, he was the polar opposite of last night's Brad personality wise.
I had a feeling the champ's "me and a friend" dancing with high schoolers would leave some DL posters gasping for air.

Wow, talk about a tournament that no one was clamoring for!
But EP Michael Davies seems to think viewers want even more tournaments. And longer tournaments too! That's apparently why we're getting yet another brand new tournament. And its another tournament that's going to last three weeks rather than two weeks!
The questions seemed incredibly easy to me, Found myself rather bored. When they dumb the show down, much like they seem to do for the primetime episodes of Celebrity Jeopardy, I lose interest.
Yes, Tennessee Williams was so obvious.
I suspect I'm going to tune out for the next three weeks. Plenty of other things to consume my time.

I’m very glad that Stephanie won. Sreekar was just a tad too smug — until he got FJ wrong and bet too much, thus allowing Stephanie to win by a few dollars.
Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands are the only US territories that would have fit geographically, and Guam just seemed like the right response between those two.

Wheel of Fortune is doing "TEEN WEEK" and none of the boys looked like teens to me. All three of the contestants creeped me out. And does some flamboyant kid really need a trip to Barbados? And why does Wheel keep giving away trips to anti-LGBTQ countries? The blonde kid who won the trip isn't going to be welcome by the locals with his prancing and arm waving.
