I don't think Alex made him look like a fool.. I think Alex saw the kid knew the correct answer but it was misspelled.

If Alex was the the single judge of the show I could perceive his tone and pause to be a little rude, however Alex is just a host and was wanting the judges (not shown) to make a ruling on the kids answer, and in that context Alex is not rude at all.
I had a bunch of shows saved on the DVR and I just watched this one-the kid was from Newtown, CT-if ANYONE deserves a break, it's a kid from that town! :eek::eek::eek: ...just sayin' :eek: It was clear that the kid knew the answer. I mean, jeez, the kid would have won the same amount of $$ either way, why not give him credit? FOR REAL!

I can't STAND Alex! He demeans women constantly-if a woman is up against two men, and loses, he will ALWAYS remark, "You were up against two tough, tough, fellows..." or something assinine to that effect. Dude, whatever! Shut the f**k up! No one cares what you have to say!

(Yes, I know-tell us how you really feel! :p )

LOL you guys-I have always gotten that wrong-piece-vs-peace in that context. But in 30 seconds with those often-malfunctioning white boards I can see someone making an "A" that looks like an "I" and Alex making a comment about it-the man just can't help himself!

Dude on end had $9200
Chick in middle had $13,200

Of course, he risked EVERYTHING!

Now Alex (and the judges..whatever!) penalized a contestant for (allegedly) mispronouncing "Elaine" - as in "Elaine" from Seinfeld:

He said, "Uh-laine" and they wanted him to say, "EEE-laine"-I remember my ex-MIL talking about her friend EEE-laine, but ex-MIL was from New York- not everyone is from the East Coast, and not everyone pronounces words the same....:rolleyes:

If you are in third place with way less money than the other two, who are going to be betting against each other, I think it's better to bet nothing in the event that everybody (or at least those other two) don't get it right and you might - I said might - wind up having the most money left in the end.

If everybody gets it, you wouldn't win anyway. So, yes it's a gamble but at least you have a chance.
AGREED! Especially if the category is something horrible like "Middle Eastern Geography" or "British Monarchs" or something that is going to be super difficult...IMHO!

So I was watching the Tournament of Champions "Decades" 1980's game last night and Chuck Forrest was on. My mother and I were discussing the game after it was over..she thought that Chuck was overly aggressive and super-pi$$ed off whenever anyone else got an answer correct, and/or whenever someone else chose the "Daily Double" clue...I don't know, he just seemed super intense, and maybe even a little nervous after all these years...
What did others think?

Yesterday was possibly the single worst 2nd place wager in the history of bad 2nd place wagers. It made Brazil's performance look good.
YEP-Stupid, stupid, stupid!

On another note-this has been floating around the interwebs-anyone know if it is true? I didn't see it-if this actually happened, I have a whole new respect for Alex!

I bet it's fake. "...deemed the most heartbreaking moment by most audience"???

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that the clue writers on the show are slightly more literate than a phishing email author.
Yeah, I noticed that the clue was a little less than legit-looking, but you have to admit, it's pretty funny! :D:D

Yeah, it's funny. This one is even funnier, and legit... :D


I wonder if the judges went back and gave him credit for a correct answer, and if not, why not? It seems arguably correct to me.
Made me think of that-but the shot at the bottom of Alex troll-lol-ing made me almost do a spit-take! Hilarious! Even if it is fake!

I wasn't paying close attention to Tuesday's Kid's Week Final - the one where the Question was "Who is Queen Elizabeth?" - who won?

Was it the girl from Indianapolis (in the middle)?

Can anyone tell me, please? :)

I have no issue with someone in the negative being out for FJ...that is not my beef. But I think Alex is and always has been rude to the contestants.
He is so smug and arrogant. Especially to female contestants.
If a woman loses to two men, he will always say something like, "You were up against two really tough guys today..."
He NEVER says the opposite to a man who might have lost to a woman-or two women...
He drives me CRAZY!
I have taken the Jeopardy contestant quiz online...haven't been called-yet-I don't know if I could conceal my Alex hatred enough to be on the show....

OT, but has Penn Jillette lost weight? He looks so skinny-almost unhealthily so....:down::down:

He made a pretty impressive comeback in double jeopardy...he was in the negative after the jeopardy round and ended up winning...good for him! Although, boy, is he full of himself! :rolleyes:
