    People laughed, but I think she was serious. She wasn't as nervous as the woman a few weeks ago but she was clearly very nervous. I thought she was going to cry when she was eliminated after DJ.

    Someone who knows her said she was joking, that she has a bone-dry wit. (jboard)

    Clearly a joke and really hard to fairly read as anything but that. Jeopardy contestants have seen the show before.

    Once again, a poor FJ wager cost a game. Had Guavari, who I was really starting to like, made the proper bet, she'd be a two day champ.

    Learn. To. Wager. :mad:

    I hope I didn't ask this here, but a couple of Jeopardy stats questions I've wondered for a long time are (all relating to Jeopardy of course):

    1) What's the deepest anyone's been in the hole at all? (e.g. if someone hit $-7000)
    2) If different, what's the deepest anyone's been in the hole AND gotten out of the hole (even if they didn't win)? (e.g. someone hit $-4000, then got up to $1000 and lost on FJ)
    3) If different, what's the deepest someone's gotten in the hole AND come back to win?

    I’d also like to know if there has ever been only 1 person advancing to Final Jeopardy. I’ve seen it get close before but I’ve never seen it happen.

    Unless you can find someone who has asked these questions and gotten an answer (which may be out of date) only the people at J! Archive or Jeopardy! Fan will be able to answer them. They have the data needed to answer questions like these.

    The lowest final score to date was $-6,800 by Stephanie Hull on March 12, 2015. That was also the deepest she was in the hole that game.

    In 2/26 ep, answer was "The Winter Palace." Contestant said "The Hermitage." Everything I've seen shows that the Winter Palace is part of the Hermitage. I would have thought they would have accepted that.

    I was surprised also. I knew one was part of the other, but they are so synonymous with each other, I was surprised they wouldn't accept either.

    Wednesday on the Cleveland CBS station they skipped right over double jeopardy, showed final, showed a bleep of technical difficulties, and then showed final again. :D Anybody else see this?

    Alex sounded a little hoarse yesterday. Hope he's OK.

    He mentioned Monday that he was getting over a cold. Taping schedule means it affected the entire week's episodes, of course.

    A contestant this week was named Greg Kihm. I was disappointed that his name wasn't mentioned when Alex talked to the contestants. He lost and there was not a second chance.

    Before this series began, Greg Kihn Band had a hit song with the words "our love's in jeopardy" which the great Weird Al turned into "I Lost on Jeopardy". I can't help but wonder if Merv was inspired by that song to bring the show back.

    I actually saw the Greg Kihn Band, back in the 70s. That's a name I haven't heard in decades. I had several of his albums.

    Can anyone, ANYONE, explain the wager of 2nd place today?

    She explained herself on Jeopardy! Fan. She had no confidence in the category and was playing for second place.

    Wow. I'm not sure I've ever heard someone say that. I guess, maybe, kinda sorta, I can her reasoning.

    But no, not really. Play to win or go home. (She went home)

    Thanks for sharing that info.

    If I recall correctly, the show had Weird Al perform at the staff Christmas party during its first season, so they were not unaware of the existence of his parody.

    But "Jeopardy!" being revived had more to do with the success of the game Trivial Pursuit than anything else.
