    the chick that beat James seemed a bit peeved last night whenever Alex would make reference to him

    would she have actually known who he was by the time she showed up?

    also, she's really good and like an ep or two from her own ToC place.

    She apparently needs like $7,000 tomorrow to get ToC

    And no, as far as she knows he's a guy who won a lot of money and bet $1000 on his only daily double and under $2000 on final

    Yeah she didn't like that even though she's clearly copying his style going for the bigger values.

    A couple of random thoughts...

    1. Trebek definitely was choked up when James lost. I think it was a confluence of events...he is already very emotionally labile with his deadly pancreatic cancer diagnosis, James had been a huge phenomenon maybe more than any previous contestant on the show, James’s daughter had just written the get well card to him.

    2. Emma “you” Boettcher had been preparing for that moment her whole life. She wrote her 70 page thesis on jeopardy game play. She has been watching the game nearly her whole life. She keeps track of all her scores at home in a journal. She watches a few feet from the TV while standing to simulate being at the actual podium. She changed her simulated buzzer from a clicking pen to a toilet paper holder as she felt it was more realistic. Her dad constantly gave her books on topics she was weak in. She tried out multiple times before finally being selected. Again, beating James wasn’t a fluke, she had been training for that moment her whole life.

    3. I always wondered about James’ weird, forced, horse-like smiles. Apparently he failed his first audition and afterwards he asked a bunch of friends and family what he could do better to get on. The vast majority said “smile”. That’s him heeding their advice.

    Is the tiebreaker a new rule? I know they used it in a tournament but I thought that in a regular game, they brought back both contestants.

    A cursory search revealed that it's not new (been around a few years) however, ties are so rare that we hardly ever see it put in play. Knowing this, Roey should've bet a dollar. The odds of him getting the question wrong while the challenger got it right were significantly less than going to a toss up question (which are almost always gimmes) and relying on his trigger finger.

    Another example tonight of a contestant in 3rd place going into Final who shouldn't have bet a thing. Dummy bet it all and got it wrong, as did the champ and second place dude. If she bets nothing, she wins. Dolt.

    Tournament of Champions filmed this week and I had the privilege of attending. I signed a massive NDA so I can't give out details, but it was an amazing experience. Once it airs I'll happily share more info/thoughts.

    After taping we all went to trivia at O'Briens and I witnessed Austin Rogers stand on a table and yell "Fuck you Brad Rutter!" after his team beat Brad's. Absolutely surreal.
