Alec Trebek kind of annoys me, when he insists on over pronouncing certain words, or when he puts on accents.
Or when he comments, chewing up precious time he takes away from the contestants. Dude - you're an emcee.
Still, I'll take him over the half-wit, Sajak. .....and I'm being generous with the 'half'.
I don't get Jeopardy on some levels. Sometimes they let answers slide, when they clearly shouldn't and sometimes they ding. Show some consistency people.
And I always treat Final Jeopardy the same way - by picking my wager (all or nothing) based on category (psssst, Broadway Musicals -all! Mythological characters - nothing!) and selecting my
If the category is 'Poetry', chances are, Elizabeth Barrett Browning is my selection well before the Gold Bond Powder commercial is even queued up. Last night the category actually was Broadway Musicals, but my selection of Finian's Rainbow missed the mark.
Oddly though, you'd be surprised how often my shoot-from-the-hip answers are actually correct.
I mean, sure it's 0.03% accurate, but that's better than I'd do hearing the actual clue.
