The kid made himself look like a fool. Alex just brought more attention to it.
I don't think Alex made him look like a fool.. I think Alex saw the kid knew the correct answer but it was misspelled.
If Alex was the the single judge of the show I could perceive his tone and pause to be a little rude, however Alex is just a host and was wanting the judges (not shown) to make a ruling on the kids answer, and in that context Alex is not rude at all.
The kid, and I guess his family thinks if he had been credited with right answer he would be $3000 richier. I guess they don't watch Jeopardy that often?
First spy pics of the new set. Now this is just the splash/intro set, not the actual game board set.
Is there a montage of the set through the years?
Picture of the new podiums and contestant area...
They have a fake game board that they use for the intro?
I had a bunch of shows saved on the DVR and I just watched this one-the kid was from Newtown, CT-if ANYONE deserves a break, it's a kid from that town! ...just sayin' It was clear that the kid knew the answer. I mean, jeez, the kid would have won the same amount of $$ either way, why not give him credit? FOR REAL!
I can't STAND Alex! He demeans women constantly-if a woman is up against two men, and loses, he will ALWAYS remark, "You were up against two tough, tough, fellows..." or something assinine to that effect. Dude, whatever! Shut the f**k up! No one cares what you have to say!
(Yes, I know-tell us how you really feel! )
Because that's not how Jeopardy works. Rules are rules.
Yes, and normally misspelling does not count against someone, and they could tell that the kid knew the answer, and I think they arbitrarily ruled against him!
There is no rule that states that Alex has to be a d*ck to a kid and almost make him cry.
This x 1, 000, 000!!!!!!
It's not a rule, just a fringe benefit.
We discussed this extensively many posts above. Bottom line: If the misspelling affects the pronunciation, it's wrong. And it did, so he was ruled to be incorrect.
I'm pretty sure there is.
Well, it's over and done and I guess we won't change each other's minds. We have said our peace....
And I still can't STAND Alex!
And I can't believe how good of a job he does. Yeah there was this one slight faux pas, but in general he makes what he does look super easy. Believe me, it's not.
But you wouldn't have been counted wrong in Final Jeopardy! for that, because it didn't change the pronunciation.
Really? So if the Final Jeopardy answer is "War and Peace" and the contestant writes "War and Piece" they'll give them a pass?
LOL you guys-I have always gotten that wrong-piece-vs-peace in that context. But in 30 seconds with those often-malfunctioning white boards I can see someone making an "A" that looks like an "I" and Alex making a comment about it-the man just can't help himself!
Yes, believe it or not, according to their rules.
