Most likely James should go over the 2Mil mark tonight!

James retained his position as champion, did not make it to 2M, however the other male contestant gave him a scare.

Thanks!  I could tell early on that the other guy had James a little concerned.

Five minutes left in the show and my satellite dish washed out!

Had the other guy caught the 2 daily doubles, I think it would have been over for James!

Overall, good show rather than just taking over!

I'll be watching again tonight!

Still Climbing …………………..

I believe the only way James is going to be stopped beaten, is for someone with some pretty good smarts to hit all of the daily doubles and James not to get any of the three available!

Well, James finally got beat, he went down like a champ!

A lady challenger took over the winner position, with a win of $46,801.

What a show!

My wife called it at the halfway mark.  We have watched it from the get go with Art Fleming. Fleming died from pancreatic cancer, the same problem that Alex has. I read about a breakthrough discovery process the sounds promising. I hope so.  

Bonnie and have often joked that we could win if we could compete as one person. We have very diverse areas of knowledge and education. Just a wild dream but fun ! !  One of her best areas is movies.  I have learned the names of many stars, not just well known stars, but a lot of character actors like Harry Carey Jr.  Looking forward to the 16th Pig Roast and a chance to bore all of you with my latest medical adventures.  So far so good...….Fat Olde Elf...

The gal was sharp and IMO James was off his game.
Now he can get back to his passion of sports betting and not worry about an ocassional loss.
Kind of wish he had set the record.

Between the 3 of them they missed only one question.  He hit the first daily double too soon.  She was smart enough to go for double or nothing on her first daily double and made big money.
The stars were not aligned for James.
Will definitely watch the next tournament of champions.
Funny how he was one day from breaking Ken Jennings all time winnings.
Would it be fun to see those two go head to head?

I did but didn't say anything to my son.  When he didn't find the two Daily Doubles and she doubled up on the first, he said "uh oh!"

James was on 2 other game shows before Jeopardy.  The first one was the on called the Chase.  It was the American version of a British show.  It pitted a team of contestants against a trivia expert.  They get to a final round against the expert.  The team is asked questions in an allotted time.  They then bring in the expert to answer the same questions.  If the team beats the expert, they win.  Most times, those teams lose.  The team beat the expert 26-9, with James answering 19 of the questions.  

James also has a BS in mathematics.
