    Michael actually said Polaris on the $400 clue in that same category where Alec hit the daily double.

  2. Cece says:

    @VJ, Oh, a lightbulb just went on—I think he was commenting on yours and Jacob’s observations about Alec (brilliant, eloquent, etc).

    Anyone know the title of the sci-fi book that was one of the answers in paper towns?

    The kind of 18 year old who would call us internet middle aged adult trolls G-d knows what.

    Must agree with Trebek. Didn’t understand one word Alec said during the chat. What a brilliant young man.

    • VJ says:

      Yes and he spoke with great eloquence, and didn’t even have to think twice about that particular “E”clue. :)

      ouch! ouch! ouch! on that extra “la.” Felt bad for Michael. Hope he saved enough for a wild card spot. There are still 4 more chances to get in on that.

      I’ve got 10 more clues from the match up now

      • William Weyser says:

        Yes, tough luck for Michael. It’s hard to make sure that you’ve got the right amount of ”la”s, like Alec did.

        • Cece says:

          Can you imagine if they had asked for her last name? I feel bad for Michael too. Poor kid , it probably cost him a WC; his chances are very slim with that low a score,

        • VJ says:

          @Cece, Yeah, he doesn’t have much of a chance. It wil be interesting to see what happens in the last 2 quarter-finals.

          So far, the teens have seemed more concerned with a big finish than preserving much of what they went into FJ with. Like yesterday, I thought Jack ($11,600) and Sabrina ($9,600) had respectable pre-FJ scores to get Wild Cards. I thought they would bet way less than they did since Emily had already nailed the semi-final spot.

        • Cece says:

          I agree with you on Jack and Sabrina. I was hoping they would bet zero. In all fairness, unlike tonight’s, I thought yesterday’s FJ was a little tough for a Teen game.

          Yeah, we’ll see what happens in the next 2 games.

        • Cece says:

          P.S. VJ, I’m asking you ’cause he never replies to questions. What does aaaa mean by his comment?

        • VJ says:

          Yeah, I agree about that FJ. In fact, I was just writing something to that effect for the weekly recap, you’ll see.

          P.S. You’re asking me? I was gonna ask you. LOL. I have no idea.

        • Cece says:

          LOL, that’s hilarious! Maybe Eric will know, since his comments are kinda crypt sometimes. :)

    This is gonna hurt Porter more than it’s gonna hurt me, because Porter Bowman & Sabrina Duong are officially eliminated.
