I haven't watched any episodes with this guy, but it's weird to me the people complaining about him and his style. Bottom line is that he gets the answers right and has enough faith in himself to risk the money. It's not like he's cheating—he's going all in on his ability.
That's not the part that bothers me about him. It's the smugness, rudeness and overall incel vibe I get from the guy. I know he's married, but he just strikes me as having an incel personality. He's rude to Alex. I have been told by members of his contestant cohort (I am in two Facebook groups for former contestants - one that is solely for women. Guess who has the most complaints about him) that he has been extremely rude to Maggie Speak, who is a beloved producer and basically the coolest person in the world. He has not, shockingly, been rude to the male producers. I actually spoke on the phone with the woman who was up against him last Thursday - he husband is currently being treated for cancer and she wanted to talk to someone who was in the same boat. Anyway, she said he was the most awful person she has ever met in her life. I'm sure some of that stems from losing to the guy, but I believe her. People used to criticize Ken Jennings, but I feel like there was a sweetness and self-deprecation about him that this guy doesn't seem to have.

I, for one, cannot wait until he loses. And I really hope it is to a woman.
Ah, I see. As I said, I've never seen any of his episodes. If he's rude, well, he fails the entertainment function of the show and as a human being.
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts. I think the teacher's tournament is on for the next couple of weeks, but he will be back after that.

Remind when he's on next and I'll make a point of watching.

I did well at the beginning then started faltering halfway through so I QUIT. That's what I am, a quitter.

You should apply for Jeopardy JUST so you can walk off the stage halfway through double.

That would require me getting to that point, but it would be worth it.

Wow—Alex Trebek says he's in near remission: https://www.ctvnews.ca/entertainment/te ... Lab0bjbqxA

Even if he's being overly optimistic and all that, this is a much better result than I would have thought given his age and the cancer's stage.
