In answer to a question asked at the end of the last thread, no spelling doesn’t count in final.

Correct spelling is not necessary.

by Anonymousreply 2June 29, 2024 7:27 AM

“Jeopardy! is not a spelling test — unless, of course, the category requires it,” it states on the show's website. “Written responses to the Final Jeopardy! clue do not have to be spelled correctly, but they must be phonetically correct and not add or subtract any extraneous sounds or syllables.”

Why didn't they show Drew's girlfriend in the studio audience? They showed his frat bros.

Zoe definitely seems to be "on the spectrum," and as far I can recall, she was one of the most bizarre contestants ever in the way she zig-zagged wildly back and forth between correct responses and really stupid, wrong ones.

"Brothers Grimm" or "Grimm Brothers" was not the name of the anthology, and that was the response required.

But would Tales of the Brothers Grimm be acceptable? Or Grimms' Fairy Tales? Or....?

by Anonymousreply 32July 2, 2024 1:40 AM

In German, it’s Kinder- und Hausmarchen, which translates as Children’s and Household Tales—the word “fairy” is not in the title. But most translations call it “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” or some variation, so as long as someone gave an answer that they knew it was a volume of tales collected (not invented) by the Grimm Brothers, I assume the judges would have accepted it.

[quote]And I'm actually constantly amazed by contestants who don't ever seem to be searching for the DDS.

Can someone please explain to me as if I were an idiot: What exactly constitutes "searching for the Daily Doubles" as compared to not doing so? Since the players have no idea where the DDs are, how does it help them to skipping around the board rather than proceeding through one category at a time? The only exception I can think of is that, as far as I know, there can never be more than one DD in any one category., so if one has already been found in a particular category, a contestant search for the other one would of course want to go to another category than finish off the first one.

Is there something about this that I'm misunderstanding?

by Anonymousreply 77July 4, 2024 7:18 PM

Yes, R77. 🙄

There aren’t DDs on the top line. Never. There isn’t more than one DD in any category. Also, lately, in the DJ round the DDs have tended to be under $800, $1,200 or $2,000.

by Anonymousreply 78July 4, 2024 7:26 PM

[quote]Also, lately, in the DJ round the DDs have tended to be under $800, $1,200 or $2,000.

"Tended" is one thing, but of course, there's no sort of rule to that effect. So the only way one can "search for Daily Doubles" is to avoid the top line and to switch out of a category if a contestant has already found a DD in it. Correct?

Anyway, why do you suppose it is that the DDs are apparently never in the top line?

by Anonymousreply 79July 4, 2024 7:40 PM

They were never in the top line so that they wouldn't be found right away when no one had any money and they would make no difference to outcome. Defeating their purpose. Until the last couple of years it seemed it was the norm to start at the top of the category and work you way down. Now the contestants jump all over. It seems to totally ruin the flow of the show. That's just me I guess.

When you factor in all of the things that can happen with a Daily Double depending on when they're found, how players run through the board, etc., that makes very little sense to me.

by Anonymousreply 82July 4, 2024 11:34 PM

It makes no sense to you that Daily Double would be of so much less importance if it was found at the top when everyone had 0 to 800 dollars? As opposed to it being a close match or someone betting it all to get back into the game? Jesus fuck. Stick with Wheel of Fortune.

by Anonymousreply 83July 5, 2024 12:04 AM

The DD issue is really only confounding when there are, say about 6 possibilities left, and a contestant doesn't search for it. In other words, goes for a category where a DD has already been uncovered or goes for a top line category. Those both happen more than you'd think.

by Anonymousreply 84July 5, 2024 2:14 AM

[quote]It makes no sense to you that Daily Double would be of so much less importance if it was found at the top when everyone had 0 to 800 dollars?

I understand that part of it, but if you're going to follow that logic to its extreme, then the Daily Doubles would only be hidden behind the highest dollar amounts of each category. In which case the contestants in search of the DDs when they wanted to find them would always choose the clues behind the highest amounts whenever they wanted to find the DDs.

And all of that is assuming that contestants are going to run through the categories from the lowest dollar amount to the highest, which is no longer true even if that used to e the case.

I went to Middlebury and somehow knew that there would be a question about it when I saw the category. It’s just sort of “off-the-radar” enough that some people have never heard of it.

My friend (who also went there) and I were both surprised by the current enrollment number which is much higher than it was when we went there.

My great aunt was a Middlebury grad 100 years ago, Phi Beta Kappa at that.

Until they got too big Middlebury was just about the prettiest school in the country. I would have loved to have been a student there in the late 40s to late 50s . It's still pretty but nothing like when I saw it from the way back seat of a station wagon in the 70s.

r150, if you'd been a Middlebury student in the late 40s to late 50s, you'd be dead now. Watch what you wish for.

I'd be OK with that.

Isaac seems like a good boy. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if he and his special lady haven’t gone all the way and are saving it for marriage.

I knew Iolanthe! I'm a G&S freak. Didn't know FJ.

Timothy Leary was the only 60s psychiatrist I could think, but I didn’t realize he had been in jail.

Guess he turned on, tuned in and dropped out.

Was stunned Leary was correct.

I like Jay, Glad he won.

Only thing I could come up with for Final was T S Eliot (yeah , I know ...)

However, they missed these which I got: Suez Canal, hymnology, Tombstone, Dien Bien Phu, Indus, and lurk.

Jay has definitely "gay voice".

I got the clue immediately just from 1980 National Book Award winner part.

“Jay has definitely "gay voice".“

Is that why he knew which state Provincetown was in?

I got final Jeopardy and it was a miraculous feat of memory on my part. I haven't read Garp since the 90s

What a bizarre episode! So many unanswered clues.

Only thing I could think of for Final was the Great Santini, but figured it was wrong

Zach held my attention throughout the game.

R167, Even after he responded “Hitchcock” in a category requiring the name of a French director?

Zach and the church lady got off to good starts so I thought there'd be some competition for our champ, but it was not to be.

FJ was very easy if you’re a John Irving fan. They even gave you the first two initials of his name!

The only Irving book I've read was [italic]A Son of the Circus[/italic]. Never saw the Garp film.

by Anonymousreply 173July 18, 2024 1:33 PM

The 1982 film version of “The World According to Garp” is wonderful. A great adaptation of the novel. There are so many good performances.: John Lithgow, Glenn Close (both nominated), Robin Williams, Swoozie Kurtz, Amanda Plummer, Jessica Tandy, Hume Cronyn (who has one of my favorite lines in the film - “You raped a dying man!”).

I bet this is the race that Glenn Close got the closest to winning out of all her nominations actually.

If "T.S. Garp" didn't do it, tonight's FJ did. Jumping the proverbial shark. Well, it is Shark Week, so....

I believe this "answer" is the nadir of FJ "answers" AND CATEGORY, ever.

"Casbah!" I screamed at my TV set.

Though I wasn't around when the film ALGIERS famously paired Hedy Lamarr with Charles Boyer, there were Saturday morning cartoons that always parodied them with Boyer's Pepe Le Moko murmuring "Come wiz me to the Casbah" to Hedy.

Easy as fuck questions. Except final. I guessed Blondie. The dude in the middle would have had a runaway victory if he stayed off his buzzer. He had a high total for someone who got so many wrong.

Micah billed himself as a Mental Health Crisis Therapist, but to me he appeared more like one of his patients.

His two sons in the audience were hot.

Doesn't mean he isn't gay. We can have children now, you know.

I thought Micah was having a heart attack. Or maybe a panic attack. He was a good player but I’m amazed he made it all the way to Final.

Had no idea about Final. Talk about obscure!

When I heard the FJ Final category was Show Biz Marriages I figured, oh, this is going to be easy, thinking on the lines of Lucy & Desi and Tony & Janet and Liz & whoever. Had I been playing I would have bet all my money, confident that I'd know the answer.

But rock musician marriages?? Ick. WTF cares?

by Anonymousreply 187July 19, 2024 1:47 PM


This type of category and question, for lack of a better term, cheapens "Jeopardy!". I mean, I know there must be contemporary subjects as well as Ancient History, but this FJ was really not designed for intellectuals.

I'd like to have seen James and Crew try it.

R188, Some lowly intern probably worked all weekend on that Final Jeopardy.

I'm glad raj won I like a good comeback. He seems so down though. Like his mom beat him one too many times at the family customer service business.

Seems he might be on the spectrum.

by Anonymousreply 199July 20, 2024 2:57 AM

Nelish definitely seemed to be on the spectrum. And determined to win.

He was down in the red in the first half then made an impressive comeback in the second

Once he figured out how to buzz in, he kept beating the other two, even though he kept answering wrong in the first half.

by Anonymousreply 200July 20, 2024 6:45 AM

Yeah Nelish played pretty miserably during the first half of the game and I never would have guessed he'd come around and win it.

But he does come across as rather grim and joyless; he's the anti-Jay.

by Anonymousreply 201July 20, 2024 9:54 AM

I thought he was suffering from stage fright.

R196 "Baby Snooks" was a pretty big clue, and after none of them being able to identify Norma Shearer/Irving Thalberg on top of that debacle, all their Hollywood cards are hereby revoked.

I've never seen The Women, would never associate those names with the film. I suppose I've heard of Thalberg vaguely, but not really knowing anything about him. Their are gay guys who aren't film buffs!
