    I like "Jeopardy!" as much as the next guy (if not more so), but I feel like two matches in a row with the same contestants, plus the regular episode, is a lot of "Jeopardy!" for one day.

    Who just throws away $1000?

    Today's FJ had all three contestants locked in place. The leader had a runaway, and second had far more than double third's money. So what does second do? Wager all her money less $5. And ending up in third place. $1000 instead of $2000.

    Why???

    One of the dumbest bets I've ever seen.

    I think the worst bet ever was one of the junior tournaments where the leader had a runaway score and a sure trip to the next round. Until he bet everything on FJ, that is! He lost to someone who had just one dollar after both failing to get the answer!

    That was fun!

    Daily Doubles were not Brad's friend tonight. :)

    Also interesting to note that James didn't get 1 Daily Double. (pretty sure about that)

    He didn't, and that cost him the game. He just couldn't accumulate enough points without at least one DD.

    FWIW, there is a GOAT thread...

    She said a Bethlehem church was in Palestine. But ‘Jeopardy!’ accepted Israel as the right answer.

    When introducing the category at the beginning of the round, Alex said, "You have to give us the present country." You might have caused the judges' heads to explode.

    The last couple days have been really depressing. After a run of strong champs, plus the GOAT tourney, we now have clue after clue with the contestants staring at each other. I don't know that I've ever seen so many clues go unanswered. Two days running.

    And the wagering... :eek:. One guy is down by thousands, "Less than a minute left", and he picks the low dollar clues. Hello? HELLO?? Anyone home?

    I don't think there's a clear answer in this case.

    And the judges realized that, reset the scores, & replaced the clue.

    This one contestant who was very nervous was in the red more than anyone I can ever recall, and yet she responded knowing it couldn't possibly help her. Now the only reason I can think of is that her action might have possibly changed the outcome for one of the others, but I don't see why she would have done it.

    Listening to Rush Limbaugh today--he's laughing about the fact that last Wednesday when a question was asked about Congressman Adam Shiff not one of the contestants knew who he was. And they even showed his picture. I thought when I saw it that it was odd since he's been on TV so much lately. :D
