    Congrats to Ryan and (presumptively, as $18.8K should be enough for a WC spot) Jason! Buzzy did great. I know he's always wanted to host, so I'm glad he's getting a shot.

    The criticism of that young man probably wouldn't from real Jeopardy fans. He shouldn't apologize. I believe it's trolls that are making all the complaints. They also want to decide who the permanent host will be.

      @Paris I was merely giving information to Leandar on what some people got worked up about. Leandar asked a question and I answered it.

    • Paris
      Paris

      @jfryza what’s wrong with saying that? Those people are competitors, James H went for the kill every time. He may not have said the words, but when he was up by 30k in double jeopardy and still wagering big on daily doubles he was going for the kill.

    • jfryza
      jfryza

      The celebration at the end wasn't really what got some worked up. Some disliked his chest thumping when a Daily Double came up and he knew the answer right away and did the chest thump before and after answering. He also said he was going for the kill when he bet a lot on another Daily Double.

    • Paris
      Paris

      @Milhouse I didn’t find him as loud & boisterous. I found him as competitive, energetic, and happy that he was winning. The price is right is jumping up and down and running up to hug the host, he didn’t do that.

    Ryan came back to play. Jason worried me a great deal, but he managed to come back and win a strong wildcard position. As for Sarah and the powers that be, this is what happens when you screw with the patriarchy and the rules. Go shove your feminist agenda up in your lower front hole.

    • Kathy KB

      @Roamer So Pervy Ok then. As long as they want to have sex with you, then they're all right. Not sure what that says about them. Or you, for that matter.

      @Kathy KB I never said I hated women. I definitely cant trust them like before, but some do love me and want to have sex. Its just a belief. Nothing personal against them.

    It seemed that Jason was not as par as Jeopardy James. So far Jason suffered the same fate as Julia Collins when she lost in the QF but enough score to enter in the SF as wildcards.

      @KR fan im pretty sure he'll make it through. Todays matchup doesnt look good for Paul and Ryan.

    • KR fan

      I hope his 18,000 plus total is enough for a wildcard. The problem Jason had was that he didn't get a single daily double.

    • TheEnlightenedNevadan
      TheEnlightenedNevadan

      I think Jason just got hit with quite a rough matchup, going against a beastly DD juggernaut who also had far longer to prepare for the TOC than anyone else did (aside from Sam) in addition to having some experience from being the alternate in the 2019 TOC where he no doubt learned a lot. I think if he goes up against a much more favorable pairing next week (IE Karen and Ben), he'll get a chance to show he's still got it. I don't think he'll win the entire TOC after this game, but he could definitely still at least make the finals. Who knows though.

      Justin is most likely talking about the 2006 TOC, where 19 day champion David Madden lost in the semifinals to Bill MacDonald.

      @ninja34744 He got knocked out in the semi-final. A miss of $5,000 on a daily double killed him.

      He is a pretty good player but he will be facing 8 others. He dominated in game 1 and appeared to have some categories well suited for him. The categories will change in his next game.

    • TheEnlightenedNevadan
      TheEnlightenedNevadan

      @Roamer So Pervy No doubt about it. I think it's fair to say having been the alternate for the TOC 2 years ago in addition to having much more time to prepare definitely helped him out a lot.

    Congrats to Ryan Bilger on being the first semifinalist and to Jason on snagging a wildcard spot. A great start to this tournament. The name draco reminded me of draco malfoy in Harry potter. Sarah played well today

    • istvanfekete1732
      istvanfekete1732

      @TheEnlightenedNevadanThat's what I meant by wagering the correct amount. If you finish the second round with more than $9.4K and you double that amount, then you will have more than $18.8K. The reason why 18.8k is generally good enough is that sometimes a contestant with, say, $10K will decide to wager less than the full amount. But the truth is, if you have, say, $10k you should wager it all because if you miss the final you're not going to make anyway, so you might as well wager it all. Jason did the right thing by wagering it all, thus maximizing this chances, but there is nothing to prevent someone with a higher amount from doing the same thing.

    • R. B. Smada
      R. B. Smada

      If Jason doesn't advance then that will be a stacked ass wild card group lol

    • TheEnlightenedNevadan
      TheEnlightenedNevadan

      @istvanfekete1732 Yes, but his score after FJ was double that amount. $18.8K is generally good enough to make it into the semifinals. Unless four others score higher than that he's in pretty good shape I'd say.

    • istvanfekete1732
      istvanfekete1732

      Jason has not clinched a wildcard spot. For that to happen, he needs to be one of the top 4 non-winners. In a game in which he was completely outplayed, he managed to end the second round with $9400. In a more even matchup, the second and third-place contestants could easily end up with more than that amount. Then it will all depend on those contestants' willingness to wager the correct amount.
