    Re: That Jeopardy Guy!

    You can also see it occasionally on NBC during their "Greatest Game Show Moments" specials, that's where I saw it recently.

    I've been watching Ken on and off since he started (I like how he writes his name different every time) and the guy even hampered my mom's birthday party last week when my grandma rushed home to watch just in case he lost so she wouldn't miss it, delaying the cake for 30 minutes (and obviously, she didn't even see him lose, she only saw him break the $500k barrier). Anyway, Ken's pretty bright, but he's missed a lot of questions too, I think his true strength comes from the strategy of his daily doubles and his ability to buzz in first - I've seen contestants hammering the button to get in ahead of him but somehow they never do. If he's cheating in any way, the buzzers would be it, but my guess is that he's just recognized exactly the right time to hit it and not just hammer it randomly.


    BTW, I think the rule was a 6-day-limit before, not 3. After 6, you got a free Jaguar from Rusnak of Pasadena, and you got to return for the tournament of champions.

    3-day might have been a really old school rule from the 1980's and 90's. I really haven't watched the show over the last decade. I was shocked to only recently that they upped the question dollars.

    I think 5 days might be the correct answer. Oops, I'm sorry, "What is 5 days?" Alex.

    Re: That Jeopardy Guy!

    The limit used to be 5 days. If you won 5 times you got to pick an automobile. For awhile they had his' and her's sportscars.

    The runner ups use to recieve prizes second place got a trip while third place got a tv.

    The money per question was double 2 years ago . It used to be,

    $100
    $200
    $300
    $400
    $500

    for the Jeopardy round.

    $200
    $400
    $600
    $800
    $1000

    for the Double Jeopardy round.

    Now the amount money amout per clues is

    $200
    $400
    $600
    $800
    $1000

    for the Jeopardy round.

    $400
    $800
    $1200
    $1600
    $2000

    for the Double Jeopardy round.

    Now since there's no limit to how many times you can come back someone like Ken can rack in a huge some of money.

    I hope he hits a million too.
