Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

Diana Ross, who also started her recording career about the same time. I don't think she had 30 top 10 albums though, even if you considered her brief career with the Supremes. She has also only done a small number of acting roles, so that she probably would not be referred to as a singer-actress. ...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 10/22/2019 (SPOILERS)

I really thought this was a game that could be won from the fourth podium with a correct FJ response. But it turns out there was only $8000 of lach trash, not enough to get ahead of Martha, the only contestant who got FJ right. Well, there were also 2 missed DD's, both of which I suspect had high g...

I'm another person whose Kosman Koin came up the wrong way between Cher and Streisand. :( So for the 2nd time this season, I start a week 0 for 2 on FJ's.

Re: Monday, October 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Given all the NHOIs for Leadville, can we officially say this was a sucky FJ! clue? No, we can't, and I say this as someone who missed it. The show has asked about Leadville multiple times before, including 3 times in the 2010s prior to this FJ, and I think that generally speaking, anything that's ...

Daryn was 0/3 on big clues and Ariana Grande has an appropriate song title, "thank u, next." And yet, he still would have won if he had chosen the "bet small" option in his Stratton's Dilemma on FJ. I'll be checking the box for "My incorrect response was Golden." Which is embarrassing since I parti...

I had the most stupid incorrect response for FJ!. Yes, it was a country in Africa...but quite possibly the worst guess while still being on the right continent. Any guesses?
Liberia? Madagascar? Egypt? Mauritius? Cape Verde? The Seychelles? Lesotho?

Nope! Count me as another. (Well, "darned", but close enough.) I assume that's what the writers were going for.

Re: Friday, October 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not quite an instaget FJ for me, but less than 5 seconds. Thought process was: 1. African countries with undemocratic leadership (okay, there are lots of them, don't try to list them all) 2. One that had a long-term dictator who lost power in the last couple years? Mugabe - Zimbabwe. Colonial power...

Poll request for "my incorrect response on Wednesday's Geographical Nicknames DD was the Netherlands." I thought that clue, even acknowledging its bottom-of-the-board placement, was huge neg-bait, and the type of YEKIOYD clue that I don't like to see on a DD. Yes, you could rule out many northern Eu...

I'm guessing the uncovered $800 clue in the I.M. Pei buildings category would have involved the glass pyramid at the Louvre. What else could it have been at that dollar level?

ETA: Yet another "dulcet" here on the $600 "Speak Softly" clue. Poll request for that response.

So far this season, I'm 18/20 on Monday-Thursday FJ!s and 2/5 on Friday. Weird.
So basically if we meet in the green room, I want to be picked to play you on the Friday episode. :D

Re: "A Big Statistic" for $400 poll (10/14/19 spoiler)

I've heard the fact quoted before that fishing was the most dangerous occupation, so the mention of drowning confirmed my reflexive response. Ditto for me. Except my initial thought was "lifeguard," but my mind quickly pushed that out due to the remembrance of hearing about the perils of being a fi...

Lindsey's collapse was the most tragic in recent memory. She had multi-day championship potential for sure. But she did it to herself. Whiffing late on an extremely easy DD was cringe worthy, and then she made a very ill advised FJ wager to cover a potential farm bet that was extremely unlikely to ...

I'm not going to waste a poll request on it, but did most of you get The Member of the Wedding? I'd honestly never heard of it, but it has tons of Archive hits (albeit most back when the canon had a heavier focus on academic topics). I fell for the same neg-bait as Emily. I think I had heard of Mem...
