are using the term contestant pretty damn loosely. The schmuck couldn't even make it to Final Jeopardy, but was able to get a brag in about how many different languages he knows.

pretty much every night because I'm an old man trapped in a slightly younger man's body. He was bad because he didn't know the answers but his strategy was solid. It's how Ken Jennings and Big Blue played. I always love when people bet big on the daily double, especially when they are behind. It's the only way to come back sometimes.

I thought that was funny and Alex is never amused by people that go off script but it was the right call at that point. I was between Carnegie Melon and Robert Morris. I guess I don't know my Pittsburgh colleges well enough.

Oh yeah he is, especially if it's some stuck-up nerd or a real showoff. You can tell when he likes someone and starts fawning over them.

And I hate when he assumes what people were going to answer. "Ooh, Jim, you were going to say 'Outer Mongolia,' weren't you?" For a guy who has all the answers written on notecards he sure is a pompous ass.
