Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

What's the going rate for an interim guest host these days?

I came here looking for just one boardie-llama announcing they got Laika from morbeedo's One Day Special, Doomed Voyages

:shock:

This seems to be an unpopular opinion, but I love Bill Whitaker as a guest host.
I'd rather have Jodie Whittaker as interim guest host #5

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In this game, I was reminded of a game earlier this season in which Marni Nixon was mentioned for the first time ever. It was a pleasant surprise to see a clue about Keith Haring, one of my favorite artists, who had been mentioned only twice before in Jeopardy history. As a young lad, I remember ge...

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Either Ken was reading wayyyy too fast, or they sped him up on the edit to make up time

Nothing about this feels right, but I’ll keep watching

Got as far as Viva and just gave up

Negged on that DD with The Awakening and had a hard time convincing myself Lady and The Tramp was right

Ahhh, goodbye, old friend!

I’m so glad we got to see Alex as a clown in that final montage!

I regret not sending a card to the studio after he announced his illness. I know he was inundated with mail, but I’d like to believe he would have read it. I don’t know why I hesitated.

Re: Always knew this day would come, but....

This morning, it was hard to play the J!6 clues knowing it's his last air date, and having to wonder if they'll still use his voice in the app. For 31 years, Alex has consistently brought joy and excitement into my life. Thank you Alex for a lifetime of entertainment. I thought the same and really ...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

I was upset that Kristin didn't go for it when offered the $425,000. If a TOCer won't take this (and have a good chance of succeeding), who will? On top of that, she went for the lower offer and left ~$50k on the table. I've never seen anyone take the lower offer on the GSN version, though the $$ i...

All killer finals are triple stumpers, but all triple stumpers are not killer finals! I got WW despite Alex's note of caution. Not sure what he was trying to convey there, probably better to say nothing at all Abysmal FJ wager! Would Tree of Knowledge suffice? I would have been hard pressed to come ...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Katie Couric: According to the Los Angeles Times, Katie will be an interim host for a week. One week!? That’s one or two days work for Couric. This revolving door will probably be a nightmare for the staff and crew with repeated taping breaks and resets. But who knows. I wish them all the best of l...

Poll request on the fashion designer DD. My train of thought was not even in the right universe, and judging from Brayden's response, neither was his. That one struck me as one that would have been tough even as a FJ. I immediately thought of architecture but "collections" brought me right back to ...

What is unfortunate for J! players to occur as often as it does it misreading the clue to not fully grasp what is being asked. Even though I did it as well on an initial fast read there should be time to reread and switch gears. I knew exactly what they were asking, and I settled on Friday :? Very ...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

Oh well. I was hoping to avoid relegation to B Taiga. I knew I needed to win my last match - and I did - but the people ahead of me needed to lose - and they tied instead. So many near misses this season - just one question along the way could have kept me above the red line. That said, I started in...

Re: Friday, December 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I am slightly vexed that I couldn't remember Diana Nyad, and ended up with Gertude Ederle as a famous swimmer. In addition to her swimming career, Nyad used to do commentaries on sports for NPR. She has a nice voice. I recently learned about Ederle, and as it goes, out went Diana Nyad - but I do ha...
