Ten minutes to mine...
I missed 16 tonight, so a score of 34. Some I never would have known, but any of these right ( instead of wrong ) would have pushed me over.
When are they running the test again? How do you sign up?
It'll be a year before the next regular adult test. Others ( teachers, students ) are still upcoming I think.
Easy to find: Jeopardy.com
Not so hot. Maybe 30-35 correct. Just froze on ones I knew the answer to. Seriously, "Mr. Darcy"... how does one forget that. I could even picture the d*mn character.
But I did get The Grinch.
Once a year. I'll try to remember to post here when they announce it next.
Clearly I"m not Jeopardy material, I couldn't even figure out how to take the test.
I registered yesterday, got an email that my registration was complete. When I was at the page to enter my time zone, I selected Central, and it said my test was at 10pm CST.
I went back at 10pm Central and it said there was no more testing until next year.
You must have misread it. The test was at 8pm Central.
There's another thread for the test; sometimes it gets bumped when they announce the new tests.
Not till 2017 though.
Although in the past couple years, they have done a handful of "supplemental" online tests that are open only to people in a certain geographic area. You'll have to keep an eye on your local "Jeopardy!" station to find out about those.
As I said, I must not be Jeopardy material.
Sucks cause I even entered it in to my calendar while I was reading it and I could swear it said CST (which is what I selected).
But if the test was at 8 pm ET (or even 8 pm CT) it couldn't have said 10 pm, regardless of time zone (unless it was a time zone in the eastern Carribean or South America).
Yes, that's true. Don't know how I could have read it wrong when I looked at it at least 3 times to make sure, but obviously I must have.
For now on it looks like the only Canadian allowed on the show is the one hosting it. As Canadian are barred do to some international law on how information is shared on internet.
One of the contestants today (Monday) is from Montreal, so the headline "Canadians no longer allowed on Jeopardy" is an over-simplification.
Canadians weren't allowed to register for the online contestant test last month, but Canadians who are currently in the contestant pool (because they had taken the test in the past) are still eligible to appear on the show.
WTF?!? We almost got to see a train wreck.
Tuesday's Jeopardy, going into FJ the leader had a lock by just a couple hundred. So of course her FJ wager will be somewhere between 0 and $199.
And she wagers $7700! It was a triple get, but had she missed, she would have been a very rare lock that loses. I can't even remember the last time that happened.
Alex's patter as her question is revealed...
"Annie could not be caught. This game was a runaway for her. She wrote down **** (redacted for spoilers, in case you haven't seen it). So she is right. She didn't have to risk anything. [Her wager is revealed] But oh my gosh. $7700. What a gutsy move."
I believe the word he wanted to say was "What an incredibly foolish move".
Is that known as "pulling a Clavin"?
Almost. For the full Clavin you have to be a lock to win and bet *everything* (and preferably lose)
What I want to know is to hear what the contestants were thinking wagering like that. Pure greed? Cockiness? Arrogance?
