    GO @teebax!!! Not the result you probably wanted, but you were great!!
  2. I really appreciate the casting this year -- so much talent, and good personalities rather than PERSONALITIES!!!!!!

    Wow! That's impressive.

    S11.E08: Snatch Game at Sea

    I'm willing to bet that Vanjie wasn't up there because Ru wanted to put the fear of god into Brooke and Yvie, and assumed they would both kill the lip sync, so no one would have to go home. It was way better TV than Brooke v. Vanjie with Vanjie going home at this point.
  5. I've found full episodes just searching Jeopardy and the date.

    On the possibility of James getting tired, IIRC, they tape two days a week, so maybe this was the end of the second day in a row, and now he'll have time to recover? I do think stamina is a big piece of J! success, in addition to buzzer timing and knowing everything. For my part, I was so glad I got the GM clue, because I used to work for a place that got funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and I could never remember where his money came from. (Does nonprofit fundraising get me in the race for doing good in the world???)

    What are... Jeopardy! experiences?

    That really sucks about the classroom grants! And yeah, I also didn't watch the show for years after being on it in 1996.
  8. I was on Jeopardy in 1996 -- back when people could only be five-day champs, and I was on the fifth day.

    On the "mispronunciation" of names, my best friend growing up had a Polish last name, which she and her cousins pronounced completely differently -- the cousins' family gave up on trying to get Americans to say it the Polish way. Steven seems like a nice guy, and he's obviously good at this game, but I think it's kind of cute/sad that all his fun stories seem to be his wife's ideas! (Cosplay, Oscars party....)
  10. Clinton did make me laugh when he kept saying, "So your dessert inspired by Belgian waffles is.... Belgian waffles."

    I almost said Felix Salmon for FJ, but got my act together in time.

    S04.E15: I Need to Find My Frenemy

    I liked how at the end of the episode, all of the non-Rebecca issues were resolved by having adult conversations: Heather tells Hector to get his shit together, Valencia realizes she could propose (and still be A Bride, which is where I think her hangup was coming from), even Paula and her new boss about the "unofficial dress code." So I'm hopeful for the love quadrangle.

    S11.E04: Trump: The Rusical

    It's not like Ru is calling her "Dr [Actual Last Name]," though. "Dr Ganache" makes me laugh every time. (Full disclosure: I have a terminal master's.)

    I was looking at her hands, and she seems to have a lot of jewelry on (rings and bracelets), so that's my diagnosis of why her buzzer technique is so loud! For whatever that's worth. I can't believe I couldn't come up with Spotlight.

    For what it's worth, there's a steak house in New York called Strip House, so I was a little surprised they didn't come back and give it to him.
