How can people smart enough to be on Jeopardy wager so terribly?

Re: Idiotic Jeopardy wagers (no spoilers before 6 EST)

There should be some icon on the contestants podium (like a trophy) for each game the current champ has won so the viewer knows whenever they tune in if there is a streak going.

Is there an app for playing along to track your score? Would be nice to have a quick correct/incorrect button with a running tally.

In the intro they mention how many wins they have - "...whose X day cash winnings total..."

Re: Idiotic Jeopardy wagers (no spoilers before 6 EST)

Last night a fairly close 3rd bet it all. It’s been awhile. 1St got it right but 3rd gave themselves no chance other than a solo get.

Re: Idiotic Jeopardy wagers (no spoilers before 6 EST)

Did anyone else notice the error in one of the sports questions tonite?

Here is the clue:

"IN GENESIS GOD ASKS ABRAHAM TO DO IT TO ISAAC; IN BASEBALL, A MANAGER ASKS A PITCHER TO DO IT WITH A BUNT TO MOVE A RUNNER"

'Pitcher' should be 'batter' right?

Eh, I think it’s ok cause pitchers almost always try to sac bunt when they bat w runners on. But yes, batter would be better.

Re: Idiotic Jeopardy wagers (no spoilers before 6 EST)

Woops I guess there is no error. I'm a Red Sox fan so I think American League and having a designated hittter instead of the pitcher. In the National League there's nothing wrong with the question.

I saw him, and thought “Why do I know this guy”?
He was on the game show The Chase...

Absolutely destroyed today, has the chance to be on for a long time I feel

Re: Idiotic Jeopardy wagers (no spoilers before 6 EST)

If guy on right didn't start picking up so many points in 2nd half of double jeopardy James would've been able to wager a ton more on FJ. Loved the 10-10 shove.

Crockpot crushing it. Anybody else surprised at 7+ years from auditions to filming?

They only keep you in the pool for 18 months, he would’ve auditioned again.
