    This comes close. It was in a tournament to go to the final round.

    I remember that three-way -zero-. Ugh. But at least they were kids.

    Almost overlooked in the FJ wagering was 2nd place. She made a wager just as bad. By wagering -0-, the only way she wins is if the leader makes an incredibly stupid bet (whodathunk?). Why she doesn't wager to actually win we'll never know.

    Code:
    Dan Feitel: $14,000+$13,999=$27,999...now a 5-day champion with $127,998
    Victoria Machado: $7,600-$0=$7,600
    Randy Pike: (-$2,600)

    Someone on the Final Wager made this comment, re second place's wager:

    So in all fairness to Victoria, perhaps there was a reason for her wager. Unless we hear from her, we'll never know if she's incredibly astute, or just unstute.

    Absolutely no reason for today's second place bet:

    Colleges & Universities
    The mission of this western university founded in 1875 is "to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life".

    What is Brigham Young University? Annie-Marie said "Cats rule!"; Erin said Bringham Young University, adding a letter and being ruled wrong.


    Scott Lord: $19,600+$401=$20,001...now a 4-time champion with $93,402
    Erin Saelzler: $10,000-$5,000=$5,000
    Anne-Marie Masse: $5,200-$0=$5,200

    Erin doesn't bet enough to win, but does bet enough to slip into 3rd. D'oh!

    I noticed an interesting thing on some old episodes I was watching (I think it was the teacher's tournament).

    Even if it's a runaway, Alex usually says at most that, that it's a runaway.

    But this time, BEFORE all of the players had shown their answers (questions), he said something like "it doesn't matter what <whoever> answered". (or maybe it was what they wagered)

    I actually don't really care, and don't think it's a big issue, it just was interesting that he doesn't usually say that.

    I saw an even more stupid 2nd place bet a few weeks back.

    I don't remember the exact numbers, but the situation was that the leader had a runaway, and second place had a runaway over third place (so, something like $12,000/$4000/$1000).

    There's absolutely no point for second place to bet anything at all, since they can't win, and they can't fall to third place unless they bet. And as long as they stay in second place, their final score is irrelevant since the prize is a fixed value.

    And guess what second place did. And guess what happened. And guess whether or not they stayed in second place. :)

    Alex's re-recorded audio is so weird to listen to in today's episode. They even dubbed over the interviews.

    Do you know what that is about?

    ETA: in case that is unclear, I was wondering why they needed to re-record his voice.

    It started off terribly with Alex barely being able to talk, and as soon as they go to the categories his voice jumped to normal. There was a note at the bottom about the audio being rerecorded. Never saw that before. It was weird with all of the level jumps but I'm sure it was better than listening to Alex struggle all show.

    Then at the end he shakes all their hands. Way to spread the germs, Alex!

    I guess having a substitute host isn't an option for some reason?

    Given that they usually shoot several episodes in a row on the same day, does that mean we'll see the dubbing on more episodes this week?

    My guess is that if this had happened earlier in the season, they would have delayed tape dates by a week or two, but that's not as workable late in the season. This might well have been the last taping session for the season, in fact.

    It'll be a while before I see this one (I'm still on.. checking iOS app..early march episodes.. I let them pile up for a LONG time, and now am watching slightly more than a week of episodes in a real week)..

    Though your comment reminds me that there have been a very few times where I have seen other notices.. I think both text overlay and even a small live Alex segment.. I think one was about a celebrity who had died between taping and the episode airing, and one was some kind of warning about a 9/11-related question or something.
