He won @ 75k today. I caught the 2nd half of the show. The guy who was in 2nd place had close to 20k...which on most days would win.

The question for me is it really about intelligence or just having a great memory? The guy knows significant and less significant things on various subjects. He had to ingest this information and then store it to be recalled. It is amazing but makes me wonder.

And with a bit of luck they will time it so Trebek drops dead while reading the final question.


Well booked Kargol

My grandma use to be convinced that the contestants were given the questions, but not the answers, in advance on many quiz/game shows. Particularly Jeopardy. Sometimes I look back and think that ignorant old fart is not nearly as crazy as I thought she was when I was a kid?


Also, what's the over/under on if Alex grows the mustache back before he dies?

There were the quiz show scandals of the '50s, but certainly if that was still happening we'd have heard about it in the past 65 years.  I get plenty of Jeopardy questions right, why would they need to give people help?  This current guy is a once-in-a-lifetime rainman type.

This guy is not over with me, but I have to admit I've been watching more than usual. He has no charisma and is kind of creepy, but most of all, it seems like all of his opponents are jobbers.

His opponents have been great at Jeopardy their entire lives and crushed everyone. They finally get onto the show and run into the human buzzsaw.

How do you know that? Maybe, after he took off and the ratings went up, they started booking some of the people who tested lower? Not saying it's wrong, it's probably what I would do if I was producing the show. I've been watching almost ever day, and I can honesty say that most of his competition seem inept.

I've never seen someone 'dumb' on the show. Obviously there is some type of selection process.

Correct, beej.

Our buddy was in the sauce, again, yesterday.  Let him sleep it off and think about what he posted.  He has been doing that a lot lately.   Maybe an intervention in the Rubber Room is needed.
