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+!!!!
My guess would be he is bad at math and didn’t notice the situation or else was just content with second place.

Re: Friday, April 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

These are the FJ wagers that drive me nuts. Difference between 2nd and 3rd place is only $1000; why not bet it all for a shot at $21,200, and a return the next day?! I wish I knew. I hope someone like that is on the show with me if I ever get on. Didn’t see the movie and thought it was more recent ...

Re: The all-time Jeopardy! leaderboard (1984-present) (MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS)

Still a ways to go. Today’s game was number 7005 in the archive and it was the 8404th game played since 1984. And quite a few of games from the first 12 seasons are just partials. Also, not all TOCers are even represented. Only seven from the first season have a regular game archived. Obviously, the...

Let’s be honest, if DC was a GOP stronghold, Republicans would be leading the charge for statehood as Democrats tried to stop them.

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

There is an issue with the 23rd amendment, which grants the district three electoral votes. What becomes of them? Could a president claim his official residence as 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? Could you imagine if in the last election you heard “With a final tally of 2-0, DC gives its three votes to Do...

Re: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Bonus question: Lansing, Michigan was also the site of the last what, which closed its doors in 1988. Playboy Club ... I got this FJ by sort of remembering when it happened, and also from having one as my first car. Not a whole lot of clues otherwise, it's kind of "Guess a car". My first car as wel...

Re: Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions alternates - who were they

Michael Shutterly of 1988 seems to be confirmed as the alternate on the archive There is a note on his player page to this effect, and an archivist probably wouldn't have entered that information without convincing evidence, but OTOH, the ToC contestant from that year that I talked to didn't have a...

Wasn't Aaron touting himself as the youngest guest host? Looks like he got edged out by a surprise contender.
He may not have been aware of Cohen’s gig when he said that. But he is young enough to be the son of at least seven of the others. (Cutoff is 20 years for possible parentage).

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I will watch whoever is hosting but I just don’t get the love for Burton. Nothing against him personally.

None of this last group really excites me. Just an actor with a rabid internet following and some talking heads on various TV shows. I think all will do a decent job.

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

He may have a lot of respect for the game, but I doubt he would be able to host the show and play as quarterback at the same time because it is possible that he has to play a big game on the day of taping, so Ken still holds the top spot for me as the new host. I think it is highly unlikely that th...

In Atlanta right now and Biden’s speech ended just in time to see the bonus round on WOF and all of Jeopardy.

No real guess on FJ. Started with Little Mermaid and then Cinderella’s castle.

I thought Anderson did a great job. My job on FJ wasn’t quite as good as I had American Gothic.
