I don't know if he will last 70+ days but he bets large enough where he could pass Jenning's earnings. That guy is ruthless with how he bets. Obviously it will turn around and bite him in the butt one day, but it is impressive to watch.

He also lacks the personality of Ken Jennings 

but I enjoy watching domination on that show and seeing contestants with 2500 at the end just looking defeated when they had no chance

Yeah, weird guy for sure. Guessing he has a photographic memory or something. He is smart as a whip.

They threw the daily double in the $1000 spot the other day and it was the first one he picked. That move could be completely random or they are trying to keep his winnings down.

You made me watch Jeopardy last night. Still impressive. If I remember, I’m going to try to watch it again tonight.

"I'll take Potent Potables for $400, Alex."
"That's $4.00, James. Four dollars and zero cents. Potent Potables for $4.00."
"But--"
"Four."


With all the morons on this team, it only makes sense we'd keep one around to coach it.

^ that reminds me of the celebrity Jeopardy on SNL years ago.

“I’ll tahe the penis mightier for 200, Alex”

“That’s ‘The Pen is Mightier’

“I don’t care what it is, if it works, I’ll take it”

"Apparently Burt Reynolds has changed his name to Turd Ferguson."

James escaped by the skin of his teeth by $18 dollars last night! 18 in a row.

I’m rooting for the guy. Let’s see a 150K or 200k one day total. I’ll add to the viewership, even if just setting up to DVR

Another 96k for James. This message boards lack of Jeopardy watching is bothersome on many levels.

I have two kids, and it's right when we prep them for bed or bathtime, so yeah, I miss out.

I think I caught the last 3 clues yesterday, but based on his playing style, they were the easy ones, so I felt really good that I answered all the Q's right.

I feel you. Same here. Typically have to end up watching it at 8 and staying off Twitter for spoilers.
