On the first night, he told Ken Jennings he scored higher in a trivia test. The following night, he said he beat both Jennings and James Holzhauer in another trivia contest. Last night, he said one of the Jeopardy superchamps was a fan of him.
I hope he whimpers away.

Oh god, he posted a screed to Facebook that was removed so he posted it to his blog.
He's so delusional-- he references a non-existent "angry brown man stereotype" and blames the viewing audience perception of his lack of grace and humor on racism.

I got Final also. However, that was guess work as I had never heard of this mnemonic, nor do I see a great use for it unless one is very seriously geographically challenged.
I did know Pizzaro died in Lima, and thought Charlemagne an unfortunate answer as Constantine was pretty much a giveaway. As someone from Southwest Florida, my heart broke when none of them knew about Hurricane Ian.

From a newspaper local to Yogesh:

He said competing on camera didn’t make him nervous.

I was particularly shocked at the other two missing UVA's home town after Erin had all but given it away with "Charlotteville".
R8, probably they all remembered Hurricane Ian very well but blanked on the name. Me, too. There's so much hurricane coverage these days - when even a tropical storm warrants headlines if it crosses the US coastline - that the names sort of blur together. But your storm and the devastation is caused is not forgotten, believe me.

The signal device is not rigged, but you have to get used to the timing of the person who activates the answer lights. Sometimes that person waits until the host has completely read the clue, other times it's a nanosecond after, and sometimes it is as the host reads the last word. There are two columns of bright blue lights on each side of the clue board that light up to indicate to contestants that they can ring in. Since they tape five episodes in a day, if you sync with the answer indicator person early enough, you can ring in first every time and be practically unstoppable. If you know the correct answers, that is. I believe that Troy has mastered this staffer's rhythm.
I sat through an entire day of taping as a contestant waiting to go on stage, so I paid attention to everything. When I appeared, I had the signalling down, but, unfortunately, did not the answer to each clue I was first on. Ah, well.

He gets all the Daily Doubles because he always starts off with the $600 or $800 question in each category. The DD in the first round is usually in the $600-$1000 range.

Jake, is obviously fast on the buzzer and smart enough to best Troy. He may last a little while, but doesn’t seem like he’s an invincible super-champ. His ability to overtake Troy was the result of that second DD and the fact that FJ was extremely difficult. He got a few questions wrong and there were enough areas that he didn’t know to indicate that he has vulnerabilities.

I knew about final and the Emerald City. Surely someone here has a background that can tell us more about why Jake has both the squinting and all those spastic movements? Quite a while ago there was a champion who wound up working at a convenience store, and now Jake is a dispatcher. What's with these people with such heavy duty low self-esteem?

Even better news is that incel Jake did not qualify for the TOC.
Let’s hope we never see or hear from him ever again.

FJ was easy for me because I saw the BBC series twice and so I knew it was a Jane Austen / Darcy reference.
One more thing:
Tonight for me, Jake officially dethroned Austin Rogers as the all-time most annoying Jeopardy contestant.

Ding, dong, the weirdo is gone. Thank goodness for Patti. And yes, R284, the cherry on top of this delightful news is that the oddball doesn’t qualify for the TOC, so we will never have to hear from him again.
I like Patti. I hope that she last for a few days.

Patti is great. Her quick responses on the mythology questions were very impressive, especially as I didn't get one right. And so fortuitous that a bookseller got Literature as a FJ category in her first game.

An entire thread devoted to the Jake hate.

Really, Jake was SO freaking quirky -- to put it kindly -- that I almost couldn't believe it. I wonder if the producers attempted to discourage his bizarre behavior. Or maybe they actually encouraged it, knowing it would engender lots of commentary, even if it was all negative. There is, after all, the theory that there is no such thing as bad publicity.

I just started watching the first round so I haven't read any of the comments but last night I was really annoyed at how unattractive all of the contestants were and I have to say tonight is much better in that regarding the guy on the end. Also while I was thinking this it made me think that the middle lady looks a lot like a very very tan Mercedes Ruhel even her hair.

The kino clue which the caption is spelled by the way brought back memories of sitting at many tables in casino restaurants that always had electronic Keno boards near the tables and the waitresses would bring you Aquino card and how my parents would always play but never once a lot of kids to do anything with it and I think damn that was selfish of them.

I thought her story about Patricia Clarkson was cute also I wonder if Patricia thinks that she looks like Mercedes rule if I ever meet Patricia one day I'm going to ask her. Also fun fact Mercedes real and Patricia Clarkson both were on Frasier.

Goddard actually I feel kind of bad for thinking the lady that won yesterday was ugly she's just old and she's probably prettier ones but I was really cranky yesterday. The whole time that clear up about the astronaut though I kept saying Goddard but really his name is Alan Shepard but I did say Alvin so I totally got his s first name right. Also I've never heard of this list and so I need to look that up but I do remember when we play like this card game that had to have like two or maybe even three decks or maybe it depended on the number of players you had but it was called b******* and it was one of those games that like all the neighborhood kids would come to play with my mom and she just drink and smoke while these little Mormon kids were there she also swore a lot too and I'm sure their parents were scandalized. Also can Jeopardy just stop with the munch clues and O'Keefe like is it a requirement to have one other every week. I feel like they're right or meetings are probably like should we do an O'Keefe clue this week or Frida kahlo or will throw a curveball and do Diego what's his name but like God every time they need to be more creative.

Patti was an adorable grandma but I guess she wasn't going to last forever. But at least she went home with about $34,000 which isn't too shabby for an hour's work.
This new champ is a serious contender and you just know he will be working many DLers' nerves for awhile. He's not going anywhere soon.

He's sexy and also it was amazing that he amassed the amount of money he did without any fuss like I didn't even notice until the end just how big a lead he had. He's just so quiet and unassuming.

[quote] He's sexy
I’m not sure that we were watching the same show. I think that he is quite unattractive and that hair looks ridiculous on him. It is dyed dark brown and yet he has that horrid salt-and-pepper scruff that is posing as a beard. That’s a difficult look to pull off even for a good-looking guy, which he is not.
And, yes, we’re going to be stuck with him for a while.

The questions seemed a bit easier tonight. There were only 4 wrong answers.
In addition to being a software engineer, Matthew has an M.A. in Classics from Oxford. Maybe it's just his accent and height, but he somehow reminds me a bit of John Cleese, and I'd like to see him do a silly walk.
