Vijay Balse's gap was what, 13 years between first try and TOC championship? (sorry, Stefan). There could be people from the 80s still trying.
Yes. I'm one of them. My first audition was 1988, And yes, I'm still trying.

(And CCs, if you're reading this, I'm ready for my close-up.)

Re: Monday, April 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Good, solid win by the champ. Many congrats and all props. My long-ago good friend explained to me that in the music conservatory (she was a graduate) they had lots of "in" jokes most likely to be "gotten" by musicians. One of them: What's the difference between a violin and a viola? Answer 1: A vio...

I'm guessing Constantinople would've gotten negged like Byzantium?
"now known as this city" makes Istanbul the only correct option.
You mean, "If you left your girl in Constantinople, she'll be waiting in...."?

Re: FJs for the 4/19/21 week

I haven't read either the comments about the "Tivoli Garden" game or all of this thread. BUT I'm with the contestant who guessed "Neuschwanstein Castle." I mean, if the Castle at Disneyland wasn't inspired by that, I don't know where it came from. To me at least, WICKED negbait.

If anyone on this board has a serious guess as to why Dan DID NOT wager everything, I would be glad to hear it.

Jeesh. Talk about just throwing away a chance to win $20K+!!!!

Re: Friday, April 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've struggled with more games this season than most, so I was pleased that I kicked butt on this game. 41R, 2W, including 3-for-3 on DDs and Coryat of over $35K. LT on (Clarence) Birdseye, (ruffed) grouse, Carpathian Mountains, Gulf of Bothnia (from a long-ago J! quiz), Adm. Nelson, and (from the l...

Australia came to me almost immediately. Took a little work to come up with Germany. Australia came to me as well, almost immediately. I stopped looking for the other one so I'm not sure I would have come up with Germany within 30 seconds. Old-Guy Champ looked strong like bull today in winning seco...

Glad to see a 3x Winner. Me to, sorta. Actually tonight I was pulling for Amy for one of the dumbest reasons I do anything. At the start of each game I write on my score sheet the names of all three contestants, and it's just way easier to write down "Amy Rey" than much longer names. So sue me. LT ...

I take back my initial praise of Aaron yesterday. His delivery is putting me to sleep...I don't know what level of excitement I want in a host, I don't want Mike Richards excitement, that I know. I'm halfway in agreement with you. Aaron is putting me to sleep and I KNOW I don't want him on any regu...

To the person who said he listens to audio of the show while driving...do not listen to this episode with this host if driving late at night or if you are very tired. Hopefully he shows more energy in the next nine episodes. Aaron Rodgers is a superb quarterback. Tonight that did not translate well...

Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

My rankings so far: 1. Mike (which surprised me...I'd never heard of him before he hosted the game). I thought he was wonderful and all we could ever ask for. 2. Ken is #2 but way below Mike in my viewpoint. He was pleasant and competent. 3. Dr. Oz. Also pleasant and competent and way below Mike. An...

FJ was a stand and stare for about 15 seconds, then AHA!, then 14 seconds of WECIB. I'll take it. Sure wonder why Jean decided to go almost all-in on FJ wagering, when her chances of snagging the win were right up there with my chances of being voted Miss America. But I guess it's her extra thousand...

On Thursday I had a toss-up between Phantom and Cats.

Re: Monday, March 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't get to see this game (preempted again by damned basketball!) and just looked at this thread.

Seems like a pretty obscure moment in history, and without the Shakespeare angle the clue was ungettable. Glad to see one contestant picked up on that and was nicely rewarded.

I also didn't get to see this game, as it was preempted by basketball.

Hope there's no more of that.

Thanks to the folks who posted the game on this board.

Re: How Did Katie Do as Host?

I have really liked Katie in her other TV work. In this role she came off as so incessantly, almost militantly sweet, that it was hard to watch. Yeah, it's necessary to have someone who is pleasant and is authentically having a good time and is not harsh when players miss stuff, and all of that. She...

Re: FJs for the 3/15/21 week

For some reason, I thought Carrara was spelled C-A-R-R-E-R-A. Perhaps it was because of Barbara Carrera, the sunglasses, or a combination of the two. So I guessed Alabaster too. Exactly. Also thought it was Carrera, and also said Alabaster. So you're saying Alabaster is not an Italian city? Who kne...

This game is a win for the Strong Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "big." --Bob
And it's a loss for the sap who never bothered to study wagering before making his appearance, and threw away the game he should have won.

Sheesh. They never learn. :roll:
