Jeopardy! #36: 3 weeks of college students, but not the National College Championship

Avi did not go down easily!

by Anonymousreply 601April 6, 2023 3:23 AM

Isn’t February sweeps month? Or do they not do that anymore? I can’t imagine this high school reunion shit is bringing in many viewers.

by Anonymousreply 1February 23, 2023 2:20 PM

Jeopardy! used to have a Teacher's Tournament every year.

I used to enjoy the Teacher's Tournament. But its been four or five years since we last had a Teacher's Tournament.

Instead, we're getting this dumbed down High School Reunion Tournament?

I really don't see it attracting new viewers. It's turning me off to think we've got to endure three weeks of this.

After every correct response she tilts her head and grins widely like she’s coquettishly posing the camera. Absolutely fucking bizarre.

I believe someone in the last thread wrote that he had checked out the upcoming contestants and that there were no good lookers among them, but I think Justin is really cute, though I do agree about his hair. He didn't start out very well in the game, but then he hit his stride. Glad he won. Also, I think he may be family :-)

In my opinion, the truth is that both are fine hosts overall, though I have minor issues with each of them. But, for whatever reasons, many people feel they HAVE TO choose sides. And not only that, once they've chosen a side, for some reason they must convince themselves that the person they prefer as host is absolutely perfect in every way, while the other person is completely terrible. This is really one of the most annoying facets of human nature.

You may have a point there. but there's still no need, in choosing a favorite between two very qualified hosts, for people to insist that one of them is great and the other one is terrible. If this were a question of choosing between Mayim Bialik and Aaron Rodgers, or between Ken Jennings and Katie Couric, for example, that would be a different story.....

Jeopardy! fans grouse over Mayim Bialik's extended hosting stint as quiz show's spring and summer schedule is announced

A number of Jeopardy! fans took to social media to react to the show's announcement of its spring and summer scheduling, some critical of part-time host Mayim Bialik while partial to Ken Jennings.

On Monday, the show's producer Sarah Foss said on the podcast Inside Jeopardy! that Jennings, 48, 'will be back on March 10, and then he will continue the rest of his syndicated run, which will take us through April 28.'

From that point, Foss said, Bialik, 47, 'will take over on May 1, and she'll take us all the way through the summer.'

A number of fans of the show took to Twitter to criticize Bialik's performance in hosting the TV stalwart.

'Jeopardy, stop trying to make Mayim happen. It's not going to happen,' one person said.

One person asked: 'How is it possible that Mayim Bialik just keeps getting worse and worse at hosting jeopardy?' while another questioned why it takes her 'so long to confirm an answer?'

Said one fan: 'I'm just getting back into @Jeopardy after a long break since the death of Alex Trebek. I wish they'd give Ken Jennings the permanent position. Mayim Bialik is out of her depth.'

Another called Bialik 'unwatchable as Jeopardy host,' adding, 'So many quirks and odd mannerisms. I'll watch again when Ken Jennings comes back.'

Some fans defended Bialik in her capacity as host of the show, with one fan saying that 'the controversy seems contrived.'

Said another fan: 'Mayim does a great job hosting. Some folks just can't deal with a woman hosting a game show. I look forward to the Mayim shows.'

One fan said that Bialik should host Celebrity Jeopardy! while Jennings hosts the syndicated edition.

'Can we for the love of god just have Mayim host Celebrity Jeopardy!' the person said. 'One of the contestants even admitted that her pacing and the way she reads the clues is just plain bad. There's literally no reason why she should be hosting syndicated.'

Ken is now officially the host of Jeopardy along with Mayim. That started at the beginning of the season.

On the very first episode of the season, Johnny said, "And now, here is the host of Jeopardy, Ken Jennings."

Ken walked out and commented how good it was to start the new season with a live audience once again after two years and to be officially introduced as the host.

After Alex died in Nov. 2020, they did 8 months of guest hosts. Ken served as one of those guest hosts, as did Mayim and about a dozen others, including Dr. Oz, Anderson Cooper, Katie Couric, Aaron Rogers and LeVar Burton. Another person filling in as guest host was show executive producer, Mike Richards, who had previously been the EP of Price is Right.

At the start of the 2021-22 season, show announced Mike Richards and Mayim Bialik as the show's new permanent hosts.

Mike Richards hosted for a week and then the scandal about Mike's controversial past was exposed. Show fired Mike as both host and EP. Show brought in Michael Davies to be the temporary EP. Davies is the British producer who brought Who Wants to be a Millionaire to America in 1999.

Mayim was not available to host full time since she also was starring in the Fox series "Call Me Kat" and couldn't be there every week.

So, they brought back Ken to fill in as host during the weeks Mayim was not available. They stuck with this situation throughout the 2021-22 season and pondered on what to do in the long run.

Since Mayim had officially been named a permanent host, she was introduced as the show host, "and now, here is the host of Jeopardy, Mayim Bialik."

Since Ken was still just filling in at that point and hadn't been named a permanent host, the show introduced him, "and now, hosting Jeopardy, Ken Jennings."

Mike Davies was named permanent EP in spring 2022. Then at start of 2022-23 season, Davies named Ken the permanent host along with Mayim. That is when they changed Ken's introduction to, "and now, here is the host of Jeopardy, Ken Jennings."

Here is the article about Mike Richards. The controversy exposed in the article ultimately resulted in his being fired as both Jeopardy host and executive producer.

Its a fascinating but quite lengthy article.

The complete rundown is much appreciated, R130, even though I did know most or all of that. I guess what I'm saying is that, since there are now TWO hosts of Jeopardy! switching off, I think "And now, hosting Jeopardy!." would be a more clear and appropriate introduction than "and now, THE host of Jeopardy!" But, obviously, no one asked me.

I also think it's weird that Ken was considered unofficial throughout the 2021-22 season, considering how often he hosted. During that season, he seemed much more than a "fill-in" to me.

Obviously, there are things about him that are very off-putting.

So let's give him a lot of credit for that.

Also, he was really foolish with that Daily Double wager. I've always said that, especially if you're way ahead, it's unwise to wager a lot of money on a Daily Double, because other than Final Jeopardy, the Daily Doubles are the only cases where you have to wager BEFORE you see the clue.

R29 I think the problem might be is the Mayim is probably playing along with the players, so she's not looking at the answers until she's given herself a chance to think up an answer herself. And she takes too much time to look after the player makes an attempt. Sometimes, especially after a daily double they may have given a correct answer, and they are on tenderhooks because she hesitates a second or two (cause she thinking of her own answer then checking). But -- I could be wrong -- does anyone know if the answer (question) is on the same screen as she reading from? Regardless, she takes too much time saying if they are right or wrong.

Maya would’ve won if she’d wagered more. I can’t remember now, but I think Jackson wagered almost everything and came up just a few bucks short of the win. If Justin didn’t get Yorkshire after Jackson was ruled incorrect with York, Jackson would have had enough to beat him. Lucky guy.

You need to get some sleep R262.

A) Once Justin got FJ correct and bet what he did, Maya couldn’t win even if she bet everything due to her poor showing on Wednesday.

B) The Yorkshire response had no effect on the outcome of today’s game as that came on Tuesday, a game in which neither Jackson nor Justin appeared.

Did anyone else notice that Miss Jackson botched his "true daily double" by guessing, "What is the liver?" in the category "one-syllable body parts"?

As much as I was opposed to this High School Reunion tournament at first, the semi-finals and finals were exciting. Mostly because I was rooting so hard for Justin to win and Jackson to be defeated (YEAH to both happening!!).

That said, three weeks is way, way too long for a tournament to go on. If this returns, it should be a two-week tournament as has been the Jeopardy standard for decades.

And ending the tournament on a Thursday?!?!?! WTF. Tournaments end on a Friday and the regular play begins again the following Monday.

Jackson seemed to be waving his rainbow flag loud and proud via that sweater. Interestingly enough, he didn't seem as smug in Thursday's game as he did in all his other games.

Overture was incredibly easy. And I don't think they've ever had an easier Final than this Eiffel Tower one.

First of all, I think it's completely understandable if any contestant uses upspeak in their responses during the game, since after all, the responses are questions. All the more so if the contestant is unsure that his or her response is correct. But anyway, it seems to me that most of Justin's responses were the opposite of upspeak. Or are you referring to his speech during the interview segment?

Alex always spent his morning reading the clues outloud prior to taping. That way, he could work on any mispronunciations before taping.

As far as I know, Alex also read over the answers too so he wouldn't be thrown off by responses that were far astray.

He would also confer with the writers about wording of clues and possible confusion, if necessary.

I would think the producers would insist Ken and Mayim follow the same protocol now that they're hosts.

I can't imagine Roy being back for a second chance if there were one because his final score was too low, and more importantly, he bombed on FJ.

All of last season's second chance contestants were players who finished their game with a great score - like say $25,000 or even more - and got FJ, but were up against one of the three powerhouse champs (Matt, Amy, Mattea) who left them in the dust.

In comparison, Roy gambled big on FJ and got the answer wrong and had a final score of around $17K.

Bye, Roy, nice to know you.

As I've said before: It seems to me that, unless a contestant is way behind in the latter part of the match, that contestant should NOT bet a large amount of money on a Daily Double, because the Daily Doubles and Final Jeopardy are the only times in the game when you are required to wager BEFORE you see the clue. Of course, there are other variables, including how knowledgeable you are in a particular category. But generally speaking, I think I would only bet a small amount of money on the DJs unless, as I said, I was way behind towards the end of the game and/or the category was one where I think I'm pretty much an expert -- for example, Broadway Musicals or The Films of Judy Garland :-)

True, all of that has to be taken into account. But generally speaking, I think too many contestants wager too much money on the Daily Doubles, considering that you have to wager before you see the clue, which is not the case at any other time in the game except for Final Jeopardy.

WTF are you even talking about R392??? Why should she bet it all? And BTW, she pretty much did. When you’re that close in second place and third place isn’t even on the stage, you bet just enough to cover the current total of first place. If he gets FJ right, you’re not going to win anyway. But he does have to bet a considerable amount. Meaning if neither gets it right, you win, 🙄🙄🙄🙄

I really liked Big Jake and don't give a shit about his politics. He was huge but sexy. The accent alone would have been nice to listen to for a while.

The prof is OK, but Ken should never have accepted "Pliny" as the to DJ. The only correct answer was Pliny the Younger. In fact, that was pretty much the point of the question. At best, he should have said "we need more" and given her a chance to add "... the Younger". Also, she mispronounced Pliny, which is hard for me to forgive in a college professor.

Pliny the Elder's death at Vesuvius is famous. It's not like this was such an obscure question that the contestant deserved a break.

R416 I totally don't understand when pronunciation disqualifies an answer... because sometimes it does. I guess if the correct spelling could not possibly be pronounced... Pliny could be read (incorrectly) as Pl-eye-knee.... but if she'd said Planny it would have been ruled incorrect.

by Anonymousreply 420March 21, 2023 7:26 AM

R416, Pliny (Elder or Younger) is pronounced "PLIH-nee", as thought it were spelled "plinny". Some scholars apparently say "plee-nee", which I suppose is meant to sound more Latin.

Melissa pronounced it as "PLINE-ee", like thigh-knee. I don't think contestants should be disqualified for mispronunciation, but she should have been required to specify which Pliny she meant or be ruled wrong.

I think Ken did correct the pronunciation when he repeated the answer as "Pliny the Younger", which is the answer he should have required from the contestant, since there are two famous Plinys.

I thought of Stockholm immediately for FJ.

How much teasing do you imagine Sharon Stone has endured over the years because of her name?

Somalia? Pavlova? These online tests must be easy-peasy indeed! They missed Coolidge, Seville, and Hong Kong (so many rhyming Chinese cities to choose from); I didn't.

I'm with Ken, delegates and delegation are two different things.

Final seemed easy to me. The date indicated it was about 50 years ago, so that helped me narrow it down to Stockholm.

I'm liking Sharon Stone.

I'm loving Sharon Stone! And please note, the sweet lady, at least, went through her most vulnerable childhood and teen years with a perfectly ordinary name.

R535, do we know if she was born with that name or acquired the last name in marriage?

Yeah, I like Sharon. I’d be very happy if she continued on as champ for a bit.

I missed Sharon's first appearance but did Ken ask her about her name's fame?

I'd be happy if Ms Stone won many more games.... just such a positive attitude, she seems to really enjoy the game. I don't like the contestants who are just so obviously tense.

by Anonymousreply 539April 1, 2023 11:29 PM

Ken hasn't asked her about the Sharon Stone fame connection yet, but he did ask her which of her brother Oliver's movies is her favorite, and she said "Natural Born Killers."

R535, “Basic Instinct” was released in 1992, so the woman has been receiving comments about her name for over thirty years, enough to irritate a saint.

I wasn't confident, but did get final. Marcus Garvey was another I knew, finding New Zealand an odd guess.

Clearly, the contestant had never heard of Garvey.

He often seemed to press his buzzer without having an answer ready.

by Anonymousreply 559April 4, 2023 3:02 PM

Dan clearly knew the answers to many of the question, but nervousness prevented the answer from traveling from his brain to his mouth.

Never underestimate how much being on that stage and having those cameras on you can affect a person's performance. They may be the best player in the world at home and even in the tryouts. But once you're on that stage and those lights come on and the cameras start pointing at you, it can really fuck you with you.

Agree on the resemblance, R563. Even more unfortunate is his sartorial style, like Sandra Lee he's not as sophisticated as he thinks he is. On the other hand, he got Final where I guessed Steven King. I hate runaways, so pleased as punch that they were all pretty much evenly matched today.

None of them associated Buffalo with Lake Erie? Damn! Rome is on the Tiber people! Did did I mention I'm a fan of the Marcus Didius Falco historical mystery series?

Oscar fantasy league? How gay is that ???

We needed more Brandon and a whole lot less Brian. I was indifferent to him yesterday. But he’s already starting to grate on me. As R589 noted, he comes off as an insufferable jackasss.

[quote]Jeopardy! player Brandon Broughton claps back at fans who questioned his ‘risky’ wager before suffering landslide loss

Since Brandon had less than half the total money that Brian had going into Final Jeopardy, Brandon would have lost anyway unless Brian had stupidly bet more than the amount of his safety cushion, which of course he did not. So Brandon's big wager did not "cost him the win," as the article states. Also, please remember that the two losers DO NOT take home the amount of money they have as their scores after Final Jeopardy.

by Anonymousreply 600April 6, 2023 3:22 AM

That story at R599 makes no fucking sense. Sounds like it was written by an AI bot that doesn’t have a clue how the game is played or how much losers take home. It was a fucking runaway.
