Re: TCONA 4 - 2014 - Official Thread

What NoName84 is leaving out is that in 2011 he beat KJ in LLLive en route to winning the thing. KJ has not been back since, so it's great to see he's returning. That guy Rutter, on the other hand, was there in 2012 and 2013 -- let's hope he comes back. Roger Craig usually makes the trip too... and...

Re: Julia Collins' 8th Grade Prediction

Perhaps 5 games plus the 4 ToC games plus...Super Jeopardy! had aired by then, maybe she was optimistic about her chances of being invited back for big tournaments (for which she's basically got a permanent invite to the rest of her life).

Re: Looking for advice from Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Alums

+1 to all that's been said. I'd also add to not be afraid to steer the conversation in your favor. I think my opening went something like this. AP: "Hey there!" Me: "Hi, how are you?"

Re: Did Jeopardy schedule this year's tournaments to break up long winning strea

Yeah, I heard rumblings of decades calls with dates being set a long time ago. Do you think this would be the type of show that, say, less than two weeks out from taping still tells its potential cross-country contestants to keep a 10-day window open for when they might *potentially* tape*? *Not nam...

Re: Could you see this contestant on Jeopardy?

Exactly, there are two types of game show contestants: the type for Jeopardy!, Millionaire, Chase, 1 vs 100, possibly Fifth Grader (is that still on?), and the type for Wheel, TPIR, Let's Make A Deal, Family Feud, etc. there are very few people (no names come to mind here, but I'm sure others can n...

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

I'll report. Went to the first LA audition a few weeks ago. Cliff Galiher was also there, and we both passed. I thought I was fairly engaging in the post-test mock whatever, but some of my quips I felt weren't landing as well, or the crowd just wasn't working to me. Talking with Cliff after, we both...

Yeah that was weird wording. I associate "27 years" so pavlovianly with Mandela that I wonder if they purposely avoided it as a trigger word. (Fun fact: he was also 27 years his last wife's senior.)

Re: J! contestants who've played under multiple names

Finally we have the ultimate name-change case with a contestant who hasn't appeared again but is in the ToC yearbook (and one of the non-winning candidates for the Fan Favorite in the BotD) - Catherine Ramen who became a woman after playing as Fred Ramen.
