    I was thinking that generally his DD2 wagers were significant dates. (situation dependent of course)

    They often are, yes. Didn't seem to be the case yesterday, 5/27.

    Here in AZ our primetime starts at 7 pm, but WoF and J! aren't on one of the four major broadcast nets, so WoF is at 7 and J! at 7:30 opposite the first hour of primetime on all the other networks.

    missed yesterday's again. When I checked yesterday afterwards, it wasn't in History why it didn't record.. but I think it was preempted since I did notice LATER I had an email about it showing overnight.. sigh.. But my guide data still showed it for Wednesday at 7pm.

    and tonight's is supposed to air in the middle of the night but I made a bunch of recordings for most of prime time.. and late night.

    Jeopardy James has kind of a creepy looking smile. Like it's a little forced or something. He is good at the game, though, I'll give him that.

    Yeah, he needs to just stop smiling with his teeth showing. Very creepy!

    I wonder if that is due to his background as a professional gambler? His "poker face" is so ingrained he has to force himself to smile when he does good.

    He's a sports gambler, so not likely.

    I believe he has a pretty severe underbite. When he smiles, his bottom teeth are fully in front of his top teeth. That's why it looks so strange.

    You can see it quite well in this photo at full size...

    Wow. The guy has a pronounced underbite, which I'm sure he's more than a little self-conscious about. Shallow much?

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    (Personally, I’m ok with you thinking I’m shallow, and I still think his open mouth smile is creepy). Some people just have creepy/weird smiles. I’m not a big fan of my own!

    Meh. I'm probably overly sensitive because I've always had an overbite, that braces were only partially able to correct.

    Jeopardy was on the NBC station back when Art Fleming hosted, as well as the first season with Trebek. In 1985, the ABC channel bsed in Asheville got the rights, along with Wheel.

    The Art Fleming/Don Pardo version of Jeapordy! was an NBC Television Network show. The Trebek version was strictly syndication, airing on different network affliliates or indepent stations in different markets.

    The mention of Art Fleming made me think of this Jeopardy blast from the past. Watch it. You'll chuckle.

    When James auditioned for Jeopardy he was told by his friends to smile a lot. I figure the current awkward/forced smile is a result of that. Hopefully someone will tell him it's no longer necessary. I'm pretty sure he passed the audition.

    I said it upthread but it bears repeating now. James smiles like Ed Grimley.
