He's definitely got his work cut out for him. She is now the record holder as the woman with the most number of wins and the most money won, and she's second overall for consecutive wins, trailing only Ken Jennings. And in most of her 20-some-odd games, she's been so far ahead by Final Jeopardy that there's no way she can lose - unless she pulls a "Cliff Clavin".
It used to be that contestants who came second to a five-time champion would get invited back at a later date. I'm pretty sure they stopped doing that when they got rid of the limit of five games about ten years ago. So it could be a one shot, bye-bye for him. Unless he's the one to finally knock her off the podium. Could happen.
Already have the PVR set to record, so I'll definitely be watching - live, if I remember.
“Geography and British history are my strongest areas, but I’m hoping I get categories like Canadian Football Rules and Tim Hortons Pastries.”
As long as there aren’t too many US politics questions. But there always seems to be a category like “Vice-presidential Candidates” or “19th Century Secretaries of State”. It’s almost like the producers want to prove that Americans are smarter than the rest of the world, and throw in categories like this to handicap Canadians and other foreigners.
Ahh yes... The inevitable American Cultural Bias. I can see why they have those questions and categories. It is an American game show produced in the US for an American audience with the majority of players being of American citizenship. I wouldn't read in some nefarious plan by the Americans to show some kind of superiority. Besides, if a player from another country or culture wants to play, the "americanized" questions shouldn't be a surprise. Just watch a few episodes.
Guess I should have put that in the Tongue-in-Cheek font.
Plus, there's almost always at least one Canadian question in there somewhere. And I have watched "a few" episodes. (I mentioned in my earlier post that my PVR is set for the show. I guess I should have mentioned that it's set to record the series, not just tomorrow's show.)
