    Alex showed his poor Spanish again when he was about to discount the answer Nin~a, but then said “Yes, we’ll accept that.”

    Only the fifth double digit regular season champion. His first $40K score :) 46/59 here.

    • Cece says:

      He scored $40,009 on Tuesday.

      • VJ says:

        You’re right Cece, but that was after FJ, not before.

        • Cece says:

          Oh, so that’s what he meant. Thanks.

          Btw, VJ, on that 4-letter DD when Alex said “Ok, we’ll accept that”, was it because of Matt’s pronunciation ? Were you surprised Matt couldn’t come up with the Greek alphabet? I was.

        • VJ says:

          Maybe that’s what he meant — I’m not sure. I saw your comment in the feed and thought you were talking about the recap mentioning his first pre-FJ total. LOL.

          I really have no clue why Alex said that about the 4-letter DD. I guess it could have been the pronunciation though it sounded fine to me.

          Yes, I was really surprised that Matt blew FJ.

        • Cece says:

          By he, we both mean aaaa, right? Just to make sure. I think watching Matt every day is messing with our heads. :):)

          Once I saw on AFV (yeah, I admit sometimes I watch that), a video of a little girl being quized on the 3 Vessels and she answered: The Pinta, The Ni ñ a and the Diarrhea.”

        • VJ says:

          yup, we both mean aaaa. OMG, that is so funny about that kid.

  3. VJ says:

    The Washington Post has an article about Matt’s mom being a federal judge LINK.

    We had a link to her wikipedia page on yesterday’s spoiler talk before that.

    Never, I hope…. Cut him a break! Being intense does not make him a “jerk!”.

  5. VJ says:

    @Leena. LOL. I imagine if he wins tomorrow, he’ll exceed Chu’s winnings by more than $10K

  6. Leena says:

    OMG! He only needs a tiny shade of $10K more in his 11th game to tie Arthur Chu’s winning streak and money.

    • Richard Corliss says:

      If he wins 10 he’s gonna run out of fingers and he’ll finally lose!

    • Tom Clark says:

      You know, hating him can make you racist and anti-Semitic at the same time! When I said I didn’t like Chu, I was accused of being racist. But for some reason, I don’t really dislike Jackson. I thought I knew so much when I was 23, but he puts me badly to shame.

      • VJ says:

        @Tom, well, I think the other players knew a lot of these answers but Matt was quicker on the draw and I also think Arthur Chu would have known Debbie Reynolds.
