Who the hell is Bill Whitaker?

Also why does the champ woman constantly joker-smile? She has countless bodies buried in her backyard

I think Whitaker comes from 60 Minutes. Didn't seem like a great start. Seemed like he didn't help the game flow, a little stilted.

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

Whitaker is on 60 minutes. He was slow and not as crisp as the others.

And yes, I also hate the current champ's cackle after she gets a DD correct.

Just put Ken Jennings in there, or even better Thomas Lennon and get it over with.

What do we think of second place’s wager (the guy leading before FJ) tonight?

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

Hanna Howard: 7800-7000=800
Elliott Goodman: 16800+928=17728
Jamie Logan: 16200+16000=32200 (New Champ)

2nd is exactly halfway between 3rd double up 15,600 and the lead score 16800

1st is assuming 2nd bets small. But really if first wants to go small then they should just go with $0. Why risk 2nd betting $0.

Still firsts best bet is to go for the lockout wager. Getting it right and losing here seems bad. I don’t think enough players in second wager optimally here (small to keep 3rd locked out).

Obv if we know second will go small we go small. Outsmarted himself here I think. Plus 928 makes no sense.

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

I think one of the bigger problems is that it's a pretty easy category. First should be accounting for that

I think the worst bet was Hanna’s (3rd going into final). I think the only legitimate way she wins is she doubles up (assuming Jamie bets $600 or $601 and Elliott bets big to lock out Jamie).

I think Elliott and Jamie’s wagers was mind games. Elliott’s wager keeps him above Hanna and forces Jamie to get it right. Maybe he didn’t like the category? Was interesting Jamie went big considering I think she was in a better spot to go small. It was almost like she knew Elliott was going small.

I didn’t like any of the bets.. but I can kinda see Elliott and Jamie’s a little more than Hanna’s.

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

To go home on a correct Response when going into Final with the lead is a mistake IMO. Especially on what to me was an easy Category and ridiculously easy Clue. When he announced the Category I turned to my wife and guessed the correct Response before even seeing the Clue.

And, yeah, this guy is so far a wet blanket host.

This is 100% subjective. To each their own.

Regardless of intent, their three wager made zero logical sense.

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

You can justify the $16000 wager. Not perfect because she never wins with $200 and could have bet that too, but other than that going all-in if she’s very comfortable with that category seems fine.

If she bets zero and wins, she’s getting $16200 plus her expected future winnings. Chances to win once more are roughly 50% and the average payday for that should be in the neighborhood of her first win. For 3 games we’re already below 25%.

I haven’t done any math on that but I doubt her expected winnings from getting $16200 on the first day and going from there are far higher than a single $32200 payday. So getting an extra $16k here if she wins makes a huge difference. I feel like people often don’t really account for that.

Both other players objectively picked a bad sizing.

I think she should’ve capped her wager at $14999 (though I like the $600 wager better). If she bet $14999 and misses, she’s left with $1201 and stays ahead of Elliott in the event he ends up going for the lockout and misses.

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

Returning champ has $18,400, 2nd place challenger with $4,600 finds DD on what is certainly the last clue of the game. Third placer is in the red.

Wager: $4,400...

It's one thing to just do the stupid thing of betting 1-2k like some people do if they don't have any idea about strategy. But realizing you have to bet big and then still failing to get it right, that's impressive.

FWIW, today was one of the rare occurrences where I felt really bad for a contestant. Looked like Kalee never got anything going and just totally froze after those two bad misses in the Tennessee category. She buzzered in on a total of 2 questions in the DJ round.

There was a guy in the college (?) tournament who went all-in in FJ in a game he had locked. Not sure if he thought he was keeping that money.
