With a 11:45 for shot1 I have to work earlier on everything and hope I don't spoil stuff for anyone with the unexpected posts a little ahead of the usual time.

13800 & 13800. What to wager. Leah blinked and it worked out okay for her this time with Hari's miss and Dana's wager. On a different day it could have been a costly error not betting the farm.

Hari showed how meaningless the J! round could be as he finished with $200 yet worked his way up to a tie for the lead (even after missing DD3 for $4K) and the game best Coryat.

The FJ! catergory had me precall John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe and something in the Pickfair area.

The FJ! clue had me done before the music for a no-doubter.

I'll race the clock for archiving though without the benefit of the CC as those are nothing but trouble with the Locast airing.

It ain't perfect, but it's done: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=7011

No time to proofread or figure out a missing word in the Irish hoard clue. I'll clean it up later today.

I see nothing missing, so I guess you cleaned it up already.

Instaget FJ.

Well, three correct FJ!s in a row is a great way to get me out of yet another months-long drought. I had this one off just "Bible".

I was cheering for Leah so I am glad she won but I don't like the way she won. Hari made what seems to be a wag. I got final instantly.

I knew right away that FJ was looking for the director of the 10 Commandments. It took me about 10 seconds to pull his name. I am not sure if I would have gotten it if he hadn't been an FJ in the finals of the UToC.

This was the first game that I've watched with Cooper as host, and I really liked him. I think that he is my favorite guest host so far.

Ardagh was the word I did not have in the clue until after I returned home.

I thought Leah's wager was fine. Is there a plausible scenario where she would have lost with her wager but won with a $0 wager? Or are we saying that $13800 is the only right wager? Leah's wager a) forces Dana to get FJ AND b) guards against Dana getting FJ right with enough of a wager to get past $13800. True, it doesn't guard against an all-in bet from Dana, but she could only do that by sacrificing point a.

Why was Hari competing in regular J! Rather than the College Tournament? I get that you aren’t limited as you are in the tournament, but the inadvisability of a college sophomore going against two older contestants was on display tonight. Easy FJ even for this non-movie buff. But, oy!, that wager...

Hari is a former National History Bee as well as Bowl champion. You're right; his appearance was a good example of getting on too soon. He should have waited a few years.

4/5 for Leah with no incorrect responses while Dana had one wrong and Hari was silent.

The writers tried to tee up another "football" moment and Leah thwarted their plans. 5/5 for me although I needed some of Anderson's reading time to land on the correct responses, so a touch harder than some previous sports categories.

As long as there are no controversial hand gestures by the contestants, I'll count it good. :)

Nice win by the new champ but that wager was odd. The middle contestant seemed sad to be there but he had a nice run in early DJ. Easy FJ.

I was trying to explain to my wife the wagering situation and that we could fully expect all-in wagers from the top two. She told me she disagreed (math isn't quite her strong suit), and then I ended up looking really dumb.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.
