I've been watching it all while he's been on there, I knew he would go over the million last night, and as luck would have it, something came up and I needed to leave the house and I missed it!   ::)

Yes, the guy is phenomenal.  He's especially fun to watch because he isn't a jerk like some of the other big winners have been.  I expect he will quickly pass Ken Jennings.

Helps to be a grambling too.
It's kinda too bad to have a person like that winning. The average contestant don't stand a chance with him.
I feel pretty good when I get 2 right. ;D

He's a human encyclopedia/Wikipedia!
His game plan of starting at the bottom and his betting schemes are pretty different.
I feel bad for the other 2 contestants.
Guy like this sure burns through their prize money budget.
 It's kind of fitting that he's drawing all those eyeballs to the show in what could be Alex Trebek's last season, following his announcement of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Good way for Trebek to go out, at the height of the show's popularity.

   I have watched him several times and he is very impressive. Yes, he starts at the bottom and moves quickly so they clear the board and don't run out to taime BS'ing and leave money on the table. He is a trivia genius IMHO. I always got annoyed when they were advised of a 1 minute warning and the contestant would pick the $200 question instead of the $1,000 one. Never made sense to me. I would not want to be playing against him. I predict he will be the new contest overall champion.

Speaking of Jeopardy, I've often wondered "what's with all the people milling around the contestants during Final Jeopardy"?

Anybody know?

I believe they're getting the set ready for Final Jeopardy.  They have to put up the screens so there isn't cheating.  They have to also use pens instead of clickers.  

Here's the real Jeopardy champ:

Can you imagine if you're finally selected to go on Jeopardy! and you have to go up against that guy? He sure is racking up cash in a hurry. It's fun to watch in a 'How much will he make tonight?' kinda way, but there isn't any competition.
I hope my ship comes in before the dock rots!

  I caught the tail end tonight and he had some completion. Against any other competitor the new guy would have won but he squeaked through tonight. He's about $1.4Mill now isn't he?

I had a feeling that he may have met his match!

I really thought for a while that he was going to be beat!

If it had been a really tough answer that might have let the lady win.  As it was, pretty easy to figure out.  That is how I figure he will get beat is when the answer is too hard and they miss the final answer.

   With right at $54,000 in winnings/score last night the number 2 guy would have beat any normal contestant. I don't guess there is a contest limit to what the guy can win.

It's all about how he plays the daily double. yesterday he only got 1. Had the other guys got both in the second round it would have been all over.
