Re: Hosting Question

I think the ship has sailed on most public personalities staying "apolitical."

Sajak's been forthright with his right-wing views for years and that hasn't hurt his Wheel career, for what it's worth.

Re: Friday, November 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Fun FJ clue that's approachable from multiple directions, I like it.

And yes I say "calm" with an audible L. That's why pronunciation-based clues annoy me. Don't even get me started on the problems with the mary/merry/marry merger...

That had to be very difficult to do in fighting back tears.
Man I was doing ok until he said "this is Jeopardy." Crying again here.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Just auditioned in DC. A few notes. We got two tests. I thought the second was easier. My brain was pretty fried after 100 questions. Maggie wasn't there. I was disappointed. They explicitly said that the order of being called up to play means nothing. Corina stumbled over her words more than once a...

That was a fun Final. I know the alphabet but it took awhile to get to X, not sure I'd have had time to write it down if I were on TV.

Hell yeah my wild guess in my one of my weaker FJ categories was right. Still counts, baby.

No disrespect to James but it's fun to watch competitive games again.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

It's well established that in the NYC area they are pronounced differently and elsewhere they aren't. This made that question very difficult for us Yankees. I'm surprised a writing staff like Jeopardy's would use a question that completely depends on your accent. Well, they do suggest you take the ...
