Just to jump in, I'll say that Ken Jennings, who once seemed a terrible choice as host, has grown on me; he's lively and engaging. His and the contestants' asides and ad libs would probably have made Alex recoil, but I rather like them for the most part. (And he's so prefereable to Mayim.)

But I wonder: Alex used to walk to the winner to shake their hand. Why doesn't Ken? Hygiene?

[quote]But I wonder: Alex used to walk to the winner to shake their hand. Why doesn't Ken? Hygiene?

That all ended with COVID.

Alex used to stand in front of the contestants podium to interview them, but once COVID hit, that stopped. Host now stands at least 10 feet away at all times. Same thing at the end.

Although the host does still pose for photos with the contestants after the show. But that happens after the camera is turned off.

Marko's Vanna White story was awkward, don't think I really understood it. But, he's cute and pinged, so ... yay!

Connecticut seemed obvious to me.

by Anonymousreply 4April 19, 2024 12:05 AM

Yay, Marco!! Way to go. He seems like a nice guy. I had a feeling that Allison wasn’t going to win it one more time because the DDs were not her friends tonight. She got the first one wrong and the two in Double Jeopardy went to each of her challengers. Plus, instead of remaining quiet and not venturing answers, as she had done previously, she seemed to get a few answers wrong.

by Anonymousreply 5April 19, 2024 12:06 AM

Allison was "exposed" as a less than a great champion. She missed several easy answers (like thinking Arkansas was a state before Alabama). I thought FJ was really easy... CT pretty obvious.

Marco is cute as a button.

Alison was quite sporting to her fellow contestants, I liked her for that.

R20 I though Marco was cute and I was sad when he looked like he was going to lose.... but then.... Plath. One of the craziest responses ever.

R12 I guessed Delaware, too.

I knew it wasn't an "A" state, I just forget about fucking Connecticut when I was going through the alphabetical list of states. (Though to be fair to me, it's a very easy state to forget about.)

Go Nam! Bravo! I liked him instantly and also think he’ll be around for a while.

I guessed Hurston for Final. Couldn’t think of any other black female novelists and playwrights of that era, but figured it was wrong. Was surprised but delighted to learn it was right.

Plath was obviously a hail mary guess as time was running out. Marko knew it was wrong but Plath was better than leaving it blank.

"Weckiai" is a Comanche name. You can find her listed in obituaries for her Comanche relatives. "Rannila" is her husband's surname. On their wedding registry, she listed her surname as "Grandbergs-Duncan." She has a relative (possibly a sister) named "Weyodi" with that same surname, but as a Comanche author, poet, and painter, this woman goes by the name "Weyodi Old Bear."

No one said it was. R183’s point in saying “Not once have I seen a DD on the top row” was that the chubby contestant bypassed the sole remaining $800 clue, which had to (and, in fact, did) contain the sole, remaining DD, and instead picked one of the $400 clues. His dunderheaded move was missing where the obvious DD was.

As a LONGTIME Jeopardy fan (meaning I watched during the Art Fleming days when the clues were covered with cardboard!!) the problem I have with the show is the way the clues are being written!! They're all so wordy, with cutesy/jokesy references sprinkled in, and way too much "clever" wordplay. Ken reads them fast enough, but it sometimes takes a second or two to get the reference they're talking about! They have about fifteen writers listed in the credits, so they should be able to come up with COHERENT and FACTUAL clues.

Will will likely be back in the ToC. With just four months of regular play this season, lots of 3-game winners will make it into the ToC. Will with his $70,000+ winnings most likely will be one of them.

Yes, there have been contestants sitting in chairs on stage before. And we've discussed them frequently. The most recent was Troy who lost to Yogesh in the ToC back in March.

As someone said upthread, Grant just makes it more obvious he's sitting on a chair because he leans forward a lot. Also tends to swivel around a lot.

Hats off to Grant for knowing the name of Frans Ferdinand's assassin in Final on Thursday. I knew what the clue was looking for, but don't think I had ever heard the name of his assassin before.

The FJ clue was confusing because it seemed to be suggesting a new play. I thought, could it be Take Me Out, but that seemed very obscure and I don't think the cast was as big as 14. And I think it debuted on Broadway in 2002 or 2003.

But 12 Angry Men was originally produced not as a stage play but on live TV and then as a small independent film, all that in the early1950s. It didn't debut on Broadway until 2004 though I think there were reginal productions of the play version before it hit Broadway (and then only at the Roundabout so not really Broadway Broadway).

I also crushed on Gregg and was really disappointed he didn't come through in the end after a very strong start.

You're guaranteed a spot in the ToC if you win 5 games. However, they've only got four months worth of regular games this year to find ToC players. And the Tournament has gotten so large in recent years -- 27 people in the most recent one -- that they will almost certainly pull some 4 game and 3 game winners in.

Grant won 4 games and over $80,000. I'd say there's a 99% chance he'll be in the ToC. That's what Ken was referring to.

It was a good game. Nice to Grant get some serious competition. But the new guy does seem boring.

I guessed Guinea Bissau for final.

Dome of the Rock seemed obvious to me, along with 49th Parallel. Amer is second South Asian on the show from Parsippany, NJ almost back-to-back.

Secretly wanted Lady Ham to win.

I thought Ivory Coast.

I’m sad Grant lost. I liked having a slacker grocery clerk as a Jeopardy champion instead of the pediatricians, rocket scientists, business analysts, software engineers and professional sports gamblers who litter the Jeopardy playing field.

I wonder if he works at Trader Joe’s.

When did they start casting ventriloquist dummies on Jeopardy??

They seemed like such a bright trio of contestants at the beginning of the show but that sure changed.

Ken seemed to lose patience with all of them, and with good reason.

There was a period during the middle of the game when I was wondering if everyone was going to end up being unable to play FJ because they'd wind up with either a negative score or $0.

[quote]Any contestant has the option to sit.

I noticed Amy was sitting in her final appearance, but I don't know if she sat during any of the other games because I never noticed her doing so before.

I was also hoping tonight that all 3 contestants would be ineligible for FJ to see what the producers would do and curious if it had ever happened before.

Lots of Yogesh BS going on. He went on another insane tirade after his second place finish in Masters. See the Masters thread if interested. But I'm not going to post it again here 'cause enough of that. Back to the normal Jeopardy! discussion.

For those who have found recent contestants disappointing, tonight’s game is more of the same.

The women of late have been embarrassing. Sam Kinison??

The bald lady didn’t ring in once in the DJ round. Nice job, casting team.

Had no idea of final, but did know a Victrola when I saw one! Vodafone?

Happy to see the "bro" challengers lose.

by Anonymousreply 292May 27, 2024 11:59 PM

Sam Kinison was the best all time bad answer in Jeopardy! history.

by Anonymousreply 293May 28, 2024 12:04 AM

Not sure I’ve ever watched a game before when was yelling the correct answer over and over while they stared blankly.

I got Brenda Lee. That was so easy, it was all over the news last Christmas

by Anonymousreply 295May 28, 2024 12:18 AM

Like I imagine most here, I knew Brenda Lee and Victrola.

I really thought the middle guy was gonna trample Amar 10 minutes in but once he started flopping, he just kept flopping . Waiting room???? With a middle Y?? WTF?

by Anonymousreply 296May 28, 2024 12:26 AM

I was hoping someone would guess Madonna for FJ.

Cher's stuffing her face with mini eclairs and crying after that final answer.

R293, Still not as bad as “calzone”.

by Anonymousreply 300May 28, 2024 2:47 AM

Yes , I was screaming Victrola at the screen but none of them seemed to hear me.

Brenda Lee was simple if you follow the news.

I also thought Tim was going to beat Amar early in the match, but he sure lost his mojo.

I’m rather tired of Amar. Ready for a new champ.

Thank goodness no one said Diana Ross.

That "Middle Y" category was a bad idea.

by Anonymousreply 303May 28, 2024 11:24 AM

Well, foYer was an easy one.

[quote]That "Middle Y" category was a bad idea.

Given how badly a number of post-tournament players have been doing, it seems that most of the categories have been a bad idea.

Like R302, I was hoping all three contestants were going to guess Diana Ross for FJ.

I’m over the contestants writing messages to their friends and family in FJ. Ken didn’t even comment on the one guy’s “I ❤️ my pregnant wife!” under his wrong guess of Parton.

Stephanie Groce seemed to drop the “Hi, Nora!” towards the end of Jeopardy Masters.

by Anonymousreply 306May 28, 2024 10:15 PM

R306, Notice how the hugging has ceased.

by Anonymousreply 307May 28, 2024 11:14 PM

The freak parades seem to be winding down too. The questions seem to be harder too. I remember when a 10K win was considered a very good win. Then everyone was finishing near 20K. Now it seems to be coming back down. Plus the double Jeopardy! questions seem to be getting harder.

by Anonymousreply 308May 29, 2024 12:00 AM

Great finish . . . love when the third place contestant wins.

Anyone here know FJ?

I was very happy with the outcome. Nice lady!

by Anonymousreply 311May 29, 2024 1:51 AM

For FJ I was thinking John Merrick (The Elephant Man) but, of course, he wasn't a scientist. That was really hard! Wonder if any of the big champs like Amy or Matt would have gotten it.
