    Amy Nienaber is very attractive to me.

    Did anyone notice how Julia appeared to be upset at the end of final jeopardy when Alex came to congratulate her? Possibly in response to the earlier heckle from the audience over her closed capitals comment. It looked liked she said bullsh.. and defintely did not look happy.

      I came in late on this show, about midway through Double Jeopardy. What happened involving a “closed capitals” comment?

    • vj says:

      @Tom – you can watch that part — the chat segment — on youtube.

      @Ron – at the end, it did appear that Amy made some point to Alex when he congratulated her. Don’t read lips so I don’t know what she said.

      • Tom Clark says:

        Thanks — but was she really still upset about the “heckle” at the end of the show? That would be kind of Chu-ish, and she doesn’t look Chu-ish. :)

    I just wanted to say what a pleasure it is to watch Amy Nienaber, who proves, once and for all, what a total ass Arthur Chu is.

    Amy proves a person can win, and win big, just playing the game in a nice, straightforward way, without the asinine MIND GAMES that Chu thought were so necessary.

    The key to winning is being able to ring in first and knowing a bunch of stuff — period! But do you think Arthur will ever be any different, as the years go by? Nah. Once a sociopath, always a sociopath.

      I was thinking along similar lines, how nice it would be if she won a BIG TON of $$. Alex said she likes to make small bets but she did make that $4K bet in Chemistry today, and it seemed more because she was confident in the category than just to get a leg up.

      you are not still having nightmares about chu, do you? i hope you taped the show where he lost, so you can watch it again and again!!

      • Tom Clark says:

        It’s not just Chu, it’s all the Chus in the world, many of whom are in politics.

        I didn’t tape his losing show, but it put a big smile on my face that lasted a day or two. He didn’t just lose, but made a total ass of himself in the process.

    I loved her shout out to ex-dental hygienist Ruth. And the bit about state capitols being closed. I’m not sure she’s trying to be funny, but if she is, she’s hitting it out of the park.

    • john blahuta says:

      maybe ruth slipped with an instrument and that’s why she is the EX- dental hygienist??
      a little payback on national tv??
      and that state capitols should have tours on weekends? after all, they are public buildings. IF she was trying to be funny, she has a dry (british) humor. i like that. let’s see what she has on tab a week from monday?!

      • SunniD says:

        She has a lovely personality and so cute. I love her wit, not sure if she is trying to be funny but she is fantastic.

    • john blahuta says:

      also – i put it in yesterday, but too late – the town (village) she comes from has an appropriate name. bettendorf means literally WAGER VILLAGE in german….

    • vj says:

      Maybe Ruth was her dental hygienist when she first start planning to get on Jeopardy! and they talked about it, then one of them moved or something like that.

    • john blahuta says:

      i know on TAP is for beer (although i don’t drink), so the tab (like in = “may i have the tab please?”) refers to a piece of paper where she might have written down some jokes.she seems confiodent that she might tell a few funny things, thinking she will win a few more games. i hope she will.
      she didn’t win by default but got both fj clues right. yesterday was sort of easy, today not so much, at least imo. unless you are a movie buff. GO AMY!!!

      • vj says:

        unless you are a movie buff — or old enough to remember that particular year and how much you wanted Burt Lancaster to win Best Actor for Atlantic City.

    • SunniD says:

      She is fantastic. I do not think she is trying to be funny, so cute. Love her!

    Next week’s BotD games were taped before Arthur Chu’s run aired. I think the BotD finals tape next month, so Chu will probably get mentioned a bit in the green room and maybe on the show during those two weeks that air in May.

  6. john blahuta says:

    way to go, amy!

    i wonder how ken will have changed when next week rolls around. does he still radiate the charisma he originally had???
