Oh, Priscilla. I don't know how one can watch that with anything but compassion. I hope she's one of those types who tried out for J! on a whim, and not like so many of us here for whom it is a life's dream.

Many years ago, my erstwhile stepbrother was a missionary in Brazil. I learned then how far east of us South America is, and therefore that Central America generally runs northwest to southeast rather than north to south.

"_____ & the Angry Inch" for $2000? Really?

Headslap moment of the night: blurting out "dulcinea" for the "sweet," hammered musical instrument. Doh!

Kudos to the writers for going with Quadrophenia instead of the more famous Tommy. I have seen the Who perform Quadrophenia live in its entirety, an amazing experience.

Oh that reminds me: I think we can confidently assert that was the first time "genderqueer" has ever been in a clue on J!.

In your defense, if I recall correctly, she did drink wine. Don't know if it was enough to be considered hammered, though.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

Missed the episode. Confused by the wording of the nor’easter clue — my degree’s in meteorology, and I grew up in New Hampshire, and I think the more precise wording would be that the predominant wind comes from that direction (on the north side of the low pressure system), or that the storm itself moves toward the east or northeast along the Atlantic coast.
I had the same problem with the clue language, but still said nor'easter as that had to (imo) be what they were going for. A couple tv meteorologists went semi-viral with a clip yesterday explaining how that clue was wrong and misleading, fwiw. Pile on for J! notoriety, maybe, but they weren't wrong.
Pending...

Thank you for this. We usually hear reports of the Internet piling on. It's good to read about a cyber group hug.
Oh they're piling on, all right. Over on Facebook where the brainiacs are.

An internet reaction to a contestant that isn’t nasty. Has to be a first.
