That crossed my mind, but it makes the least sense in Jeopardy, since people don’t get to keep the money they rack up unless they win. The other two are only ever going to get second and third place amounts, no matter what they earn. I’d believe it more if he answered NO questions at the end, but if his intention is to make challengers feel better, coming in right at the end and steamrolling them on the last few questions seems more like a “There, I hope you enjoyed your ‘gimmes’ but let me run over you at the end” move. I would think contestants on Jeopardy wouldn’t want pity points, anyway.
I felt that, too. But she kind of had that look even from the start. It did get worse as the game went on, though.
I hardly ever feel this way, except I did for that one champ...I think his name was Ryan.
The end scores of today’s game were disappointing because really no one had to bet anything in FJ. Even all in, third place couldn’t catch second place, second place couldn’t catch first place.
I thought FJ was pretty easy. Did anyone have a guess that wasn’t the right answer? I can see not coming up with anything, but I couldn’t even have imagined what else it could be that made sense with the year.
