Shoot...

I know Alex wanted to leave a final 30 second message on his last episode, and I wish he was able to do so. The montage at the end was very nice nonetheless.
Unfortunately from what Mike Richards said, Alex didn't think his was his last episode.

Re: 2020 in review and what's in store for 2021

Also to consider is how not everyone that is good enough to pass the test, and lucky enough to get randomly drawn to audition, will have an interview that makes the contestant coordinators feel they will be good on TV. I used to interview horribly, looking back I can easily see why I wasn't picked ...

Re: OBIT: Alex Trebek

While a previous poster mentioned, this is news that you will want to remember where you were when you heard, I was driving on Interstate 190, to go see a beginning (new train station opening in downtown Buffalo), that's when I found out about an ending. Each day with pancreatic cancer is a gift, lo...

Re: Reretaken Down

Probably better that I continue extra TPIR chatter here. For Bob vs. Drew I look at Ten Chances. I always enjoyed seeing Bob get frustrated that contestants did not know the ends in zero "rule" while Drew takes it all in a more good-natured fashion. Any time now that game comes up I always think of...

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

Ken is 46. Alex was 44 when he hosted his first episode. I agree about having someone commit long term. I thought TPIR bringing Drew Carey on was an odd choice, but he has been there 13 years now. I think they need a 5-season host for a transition; then a potential 30-year host. Drew has been there...

For those of you living in the LA area, if you haven't already, I'd strongly recommend you try out for Master Minds. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd9yECf_nKi7VGzGDYf5qtAoHdWWrCNpial3r5dLS9ZwO2ezA/viewform Though I've never really had a bad experience on any of the game shows I've been o...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

In the Barbara Lowe thread, Roadgeek Adam posted (most of) an article by Clint Swett, who became champion after Barbara was retired. In googling him, I found another J! related article from the Brazosport Facts in Clute, Texas. It's at https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/9569442/ but I'll copy it o...

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

I really tried to dig up the better thread, back on the old Jeopardy board, back when Kirby showed up. Unfortunately the archives bypass that thread by a month-ish.

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

What's the source for the Social Security number thing? Eisenberg's book. Do you have an actual citation? It's not in the pages Mark scanned, linked elsewhere in this thread. (I'm at work or I'd check my own copies.) Maybe I misread that. Hold on. Apparently Boden. https://www.reddit.com/r/lostmedi...

I just saw a picture in the recap thread that Roadgeek Adam linked to showing that "Barbara Lowe" appeared on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? as Barbara Vollick. And well, there's this on Twitter.

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

This is somebody who flat out lied and cheated to appear on the show and eventually got caught. Then threw a hissy and threatened a lawsuit when they didn’t want to pay her what she basically stole from someone else. So, aside from archive purposes, why are people talking about her? By doing so, yo...

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

I admit, with the anniversary 35 years later in March 2021, it would be very interesting to hear her side of this, but I have to imagine, even 35 years later, there's a bunch of NDAs and gag orders.
