Re: Friends competing on Jeopardy?

I caught wind ahead of the taping for my college tournament that a friend I'd made at the National Geography Bee a few years earlier was also going to be on my same tournament. I let TPTB know ahead of time, hoping that wouldn't screw either of our chances up, and Maggie in her jovial manner was bas...

Re: Friday, May 8, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Beat me to it. What is talking about your opposite sex partner other than announcing your straightness to the world? Same exact thing. If Louis talked about his same-sex partner, that would be the same thing. But he is, like, "Look at me! Look at me! I'm gay! Swish, swish! In your face, hetero!" Be...

Before my weekend of J! fame is officially up and Debra Messing takes over as the most harried contestant of May, I just want to thank Kristin and Justin Sausville for sending Glenn my article. It has been an incredible joy talking with J! vets. Also, bless the immortal Kaya Chua for that excellent...

Re: Contestant referral

I'd heard of this, but I don't think I or any of my CC cohorts ever got any sort of official flyer like that. So when my chemistry adviser I knew was going to take the audition test, I emailed Maggie and let her know that I thought he'd be a great contestant, and she thanked me for it. He did snag a...

Re: Do you think that Arthur Chu is going to change how the game is played?

The answer to the thread title is yes, right? Arthur literally changed how the game is played, with regards to the tiebreaker rule.

Re: UPDATE: Final call for new trivia game show

Got a note from an FB friend of mine saying he was flown to LA to meet with the producers of the show, but learned last night he wasn't selected as a contestant. So it sounds as if they are wrapping up casting as we speak. Wondering how many "out of towners" were flown in to meet with producers. Ab...

Re: Familiar Face on "The Chase" (Spoilers for The Chase)

I'm surprised (and in somewhat admiration) that LabbettM, for all that is riding on his reputation, hasn't gotten swept up in the mysterious second wind that many players on LL seem to gain halfway through the season.

Re: Thursday, November 13, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

If the rule is true, it yields a fairly interesting insight into the Jeopardy! production process: namely, it is possible to edit even the worst games down to size to fit airtime limits (and still leave room for all the fee plugs), but that the clock is arbitrarily imposed on most games just to sav...

Re: Putting a stop to ties

Another aspect that I'm sure TPTB is thinking about is the logistics of flying in contestants. Last week on that taping day they ended up with two superfluous contestants plus the local alternate. That's reminiscent of a certain other new and rising game show's levels of bad contestant planning, and...

I was only able to squeeze in three or four game days this year due to academic commitments (a weak excuse, I acknowledge, in the wake of DoT's ten-year dedication), but I want to join in what will hopefully be a country-sized chorus of thank you and appreciation for the marvelous work you have put ...
