    VJ, lmao when Trebek asked Ryan if he added an “s” to Burnside and Ryan replied with an emphatic yes as if he felt that was correct. Then he was ruled incorrect. :) :)

    Trebek is slick. Did you catch that when you watched the match?

    • Richard Corliss says:

      That was extremely funny and ticklish.

    • VJ says:

      yes, I put it up there under the image (that 15th clue). That was so peculiar that Trebek didn’t just rule him incorrect and give the others — 2 history teachers, for gawd’s sake! — a shot at it. Ryan must have thought he was about to get dinged because Trebek didn’t hear his “s”. Instead he gets dinged because they did hear it. LOL!!

        VJ, it was hilarious imo the way Alex dinged Ryan. I did see your comment above but didn’t know if you found it as funny as we did in my household. I do agree it was not offered to the other two contestants but I think it was because Alex had hinted at the correct response.

        • VJ says:

          @Jacob, honestly, I was confused by the whole thing because I didn’t hear him say the extra “S” at the end and I was surprised when he said he did!

    VJ, in the Library category, there was a clue about an Elizabethan patron. I had trouble hearing the response, was it Marlowe? Thanks!

    • VJ says:

      Hey, Rhonda, no – it wasn’t Marlowe. I’ve got that clue on the extra clues list with a link to the history page on the library’s fine website :)

      • rhonda says:

        Thanks, VJ. I clicked on the link and it leads to Insect Dreams on Amazon.

        • VJ says:

          idk how that happened, it works for me. Sometimes that happens to me — I hit the wrong link and I’m like whaaaaa?????

          Anyway, try this one so you don’t have to go back.

        • Cece says:

          VJ, sorry to repeat what Rhonda has already mentioned, but the “10 more clues from this match” is linking to “Insect Dreams: The Half Life of Gregor Samsa.”

        • VJ says:

          Oh! Thanks, Cece! I totally misunderstood and thought the wrong link was on the clues post. I am putting the right link here and deleting the other one so nobody gets a cache problem with it.

    • VJ says:

      So sorry I messed that up Rhonda. I put the right link in my response to Cece.

    Well like you said before, VJ, each time Justin makes bets like this, it increases his chance of defeat and that’s what happened today, but he had a good 5 game run. Let’s hope Shadi can make a comeback tomorrow before the six week break starts. Anthony Hopkins was also in a superhero movie like Transformers 5. That was one of my favorites, don’t you agree, VJ?

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, yes, it was inevitable that Justin’s betting strategy would fail one day, although I was expecting it to happen when someone else knew FJ!

      I’ve never seen Transformers 5 but Anthony Hopkins certainly has played quite a range of characters, including Quasimodo, St. Paul, Othello, even Zorro!

    Any of you ever contested in Jeopardy??

    • Kevin S. says:

      If you mean, “appeared as a contestant on Jeopardy,” then the answer is yes; there are several former contestants who post on the site, either occasionally or regularly.

  5. Richard Corliss says:

    Wow Shadi, you looked so surprised, see you in November 6-17, 2017, Justin. See ya later.

  6. Dalton Higbee says:

    Whoever wins tomorrow gets to relax for six weeks until season 34 begins on September 11th.
