Probably because she took a brief glance at the news today.

or people who happen to frequent sites that either wouldn’t write anything about leaked footage or sites that would do the bare minimum and add a spoiler alert at the top of any Jeopardy post

but you're such a brat that couldn’t even think of that. you just had to accuse those who didn’t know as being uninformed citizens

jesus christ you’re fuckin’ sad, man.

I don't think Jeopardy is typically near the top of the list of shows where people are requesting spoiler alerts.

JFC my post was at 830 in the morning before the news of that clip had been widely circulated. I heard about around lunch time that he lost and he was joking about it on twitter that afternoon.

Jeopardy apparently airs in Montgomery, AL at lunch time so at that point there is no longer an NDA on James.

Jeopardy is aired in the morning in some areas, so it was common knowledge by lunch.

It was all over the news, social media, and internet.

It's like any show. If you go to a message board and see the main thread discussing it bubbling to the top, don't click on it until you've seen the episode from that day, it's really not that difficult.

Even if you came in here and saw a big "SPOILER" tag...what else do you think someone could be spoiling other than "oh shit he loses"?

Yup. If you've somehow managed to not glance at NYT, Washington Post, CNBC, Twitter, Deadspin/Gizmodo, Yahoo, your mom's FB timeline etcccccc all day, proceed with caution when you peek your head out of that hole.

I hadn’t been watching, so the spoiler didn’t really affect me, but just wanted to say I browse news websites, Twitter, Facebook all day and this was the only place I saw it ahead of time.

^^^thats dumb, people like to discuss things, it’s kinda why this whole place is here. People don’t (and shouldn’t have to) avoid show threads “the day of” especially if it’s a solid 10 hours before the show airs in the area most of us live

It’s best of 3 matches, and a match is won with most money after 2 games. He did what he needed to take the first match, betting more wouldn’t have helped him. Totals don’t carry on to tomorrow

Winner gets $1mill, while two runners up gets 250k$. Pretty sweet deal.

Jeopardy in the hot seat for counting Palestine as the wrong answer for the location of Bethlehem (it is in the West Bank), and counting Israel as the correct answer.

Yeah I saw that story earlier. Thats an example of a story I think most people in the US even those sympathetic to plight of Palestinians agree is not big deal at all. Your use of hot seat is hyperbole.

Yes it was hyperbole, but also remember, the world has more than just Americans. Many outside the US do see it as a very big deal, and see it as a continuation of the supremacist colonialist-settler narrative. Not like anything will happen, but it does speak volumes symbolically. Actually, it should be a big deal in the US as well... I mean, we are talking about a quiz show, so facts should matter regardless of where one's sympathies lie.

I'm glad Ken won. Now he can come back and host when Alex kicks the bucket. Also he's the GOAT.

Trebek had a 16% of making it to this point and has a 7% chance of making it to next year

Things that help improve cancer survival rates: having a shit ton of money.

But that aside, I'm glad he's not dead.

Wouldn’t the odds readjust for him in the second year? The odds were for everyone who is diagnosed, only 16% make it to one year and 7% make it to two years from initial diagnosis. That would make it just under 50% since he made it to one year for him to make it to the next. Not trying to downplay what he’s done but from anecdotal evidence his cancer diagnosis is usually so bad that most who are diagnosed die within a few weeks or months.
