    I hope heís back. I think he has been getting better and better as a jeopardy host at blending into the game as he has got more experience. Blossom seems to be moving in the other direction and is much more intrusive

    I like the show much better with Ken hosting than Mayim. I'll still watch, but I won't really care too much if I miss episodes with her hosting.

    I also would never say that Alex Trebek was bland. He had his own style and I think some people won't be satisfied with any host who isn't Alex.

    By bland I mean that he didn't do anything that annoyed people. Until the last season or two when he started to get a little wordy--there was definitely an uptick in the number of rounds that didn't finish, which is pretty rare now. Maybe that's on the hosts or maybe there's some other reason.

    I still miss Aaron Rodgers. Maybe Brady came out of retirement because he was hoping for a shot at the Jeopardy job and they said no.

    Oof. What a drop in play from Matea. And The Great Gatsby as a Renaissance poem name? WTAF and she looked surprised it was incorrect lmao. I liked the dudes over the top reactions but he played terribly. The third chick was kinda hot

    Still baffled as to why Ryan was essentially driving an Uber. He seems smart enough to do just about anything. Surely he could make more money doing something else... besides Jeopardy that is...
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Had he worn glasses in previous games? Didnít seem like it but my I didnít notice them since they werenít in full fog mode

    Ryan is one of my fave champs ever. Super humble And grateful guy that has quietly put together a really strong run.

    Super glad this guy is winning life changing money and does something cool w it

    Because life and wealth is all about luck and not intelligence? At least thats what I get from reading most posts on TGR.

    I read an interview where he said had forgotten them for the prior week tapings. He said at one point that he couldnít really see one of the pictures going along with one of the daily doubles- but he got it right

    Jeopardy thread- LETITSNOW

    I just read that too. And one clue pic he couldnít see and just took a guess but not correct. Glad to have the glasses mystery solved other than why they fogged up. Iíve never seen that on tv like that

    As for the glasses fogging, first off they are under hot lights for the set and filming. He is also a pretty good sized guy and it would not take much to get a bit of perspiration and fogging behind the lenses.

    Low score this eve, but Iím stoked to see Ryan still raking it in
    So much harder when they have 2 answer questions too. I always wonder how the clue crew decides to go with a 2+ answer question

    Didn't catch the sasquatch shirt. I need a bigger better TV.
    (Although more for watching hockey than Jeopardy.)

    Still could be a spoiler for a few so....



















    First time I believe for Ryan having a tough opponent and trailing going into final Jeopardy. Should not be a spoiler to those on the West Coast, but if you do not watch it live and record it it could be, so will not state the outcome of the Final Jeopardy with the contender wagers and either got the final right or wrong answer...

    Sasquatch shirt was fantastic and the dude went out w some flair as well!

    Last night was a great final. Thought that was gonna be it for him until the other guy whiffed on what I thought was a relatively easy final

    One thing is clear--Ryan watches a lot of TV.

    Ryan gets down on himself for going small on daily doubles but his betting in FJ has won him at least 2 games that he should have lost, where he trailed going into Final and answered wrong. And while he isn't winning huge, his conservative betting has kept his streak going. I think he's up to 8th all time consecutive regular play games won.

    Was glad he won last night. Going into final, I wondered what the betting strategies would be and they didnít disappoint. That was a tough final
