    alex wouldn't have let him get away with it a second time unless he corrected himself before time was up.

    Games 1-3 are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday of the first week.
    Games 4-7 are Tuesday through Friday of the second week.

    He may have said, "Who is... (lengthy pause) ...Rachel Maddow?"

    I didn't think inflection counted.

    Maybe it just comes down to whether Alex catches it or not. I'm not a regular Jeopardy viewer, but I watch it enough to recall times where he either asks someone to phrase it as a question or, if time runs out, says they're technically incorrect because they failed to phrase the response properly. Just seems like a big miss to not even address during a GOAT tournament, unless That Don Guy is correct and there was a long pause I'm not remembering (my recollection is that the response came immediately after he buzzed in).

    It doesn't. Unless Alex says "Correct!" anyway.

    Typically he'll cut the contestant some slack during the Jeopardy round and remind them, but in DJ they're sunk if they don't figure it out on their own. IIRC this was in the Double Jeopardy round.

    I went back and watched it again (about 51 minutes in, the $800 clue in Audible)

    There's a barely audible "Who's..." before "Rachel Maddow?"

    Guess I should have rewound :). Thanks!

    Ironic considering the name of the category.

    Which happens often. The question part is often mumbled and we don’t hear it quickly.

    Hopefully Brad's luck changes soon, or there's no way this goes 7 nights.

    Definitely enjoying the games so far.

    Does anyone else think Alex is going to announce his retirement at the end of the last goat show?

    Man they are so fast on those triple rhyme time and before and after ones. They're usually buzzed in and done talking just as I'm figuring out one part of it! I think I only got one of them fully spit out before they did.

    I feel bad for Brad. He seems to be getting those daily doubles when he doesn't have much to bet, but then is also blowing them. What was with the two pairs of chromosomes answer? Was he way overthinking that or what? I wonder if he's slower on the buzzer and is just caught off guard when he gets in ahead of the other two. It seems like when the "regular" players were going against James and they just started to try and buzz in on everything even if they didn't know it.

    I'm surprised that Brad hasn't been more competitive too. It's probably a combination of things. Including age, bad luck/timing. He's certainly no slouch when it comes to Jeopardy as he has consistently proven over the years.

    I agree that Brad seems a bit overmatched right now, but don't understand the age discussion. Isn't he younger than Ken Jennings?

    Finally, a category on tonight's episode I aced (Cybersecurity). I was actually amazed that the category seemed to give all three some trouble - I actually thought the answers were too easy.

    Brad: 41
    Ken: 45
    James: "about 36"

    Quite the dominating win by ken tonight. James finally gets a DD with some points, and misses it.

    Yeah, he’s really looked out of his element against those other 2.

    I went back and listened. If he said it, it was very faint and mumbled. I couldn't make out the words. I even turned up the AVR, but that didn't help. Closed captioning had "Who is."
