OK Jeopardy fans, or any game show fans, have you been watching the latest super genius make us mortals look like idiots?
He, in the last few weeks has gone over 1.200,000 dollars - And in the process broken several all time records for most money won on one show
- Several times going over $100,000!!!
This show has been on for 35 years.
Now I don't want to be a spoil sport, but while this super win streak has been gong on - One of the major online news services has been
broadcasting a short story about Charles Van Doren - famous for winning over the equivalent of over one million way back in the 1950s
or 60s on the game show '21' - And also famous for coming under congressional scrutiny because the show was rigged - He had the answers
ahead of time.
And as I watch James Holzhauer give answer after answer, in what appears to be effortless ability to have all the data in the World
at the front of his mind - I WONDER ??? - Is it possible?, can his brain really maintain that much more than us mere mortals?
- And have all the data so easily accessible?
Have you been watching the show? - What do you think
Jeopardy contestant James Holzhauer's is closing in on record winnings
edit on 26-4-2019 by AlienView because: (no reason given)
we watch the show quite often. He is good at this, he has learned how to gamble, that gives him an edge, when nervous, the memory does not work as
How would you like it if you were finally accepted to Jeopardy and he was against you. What a drag it must be for those other contestants, knowing
their chances of winning are slim. That alone can make it so the other contestants cannot win, their confidence gets busted. That would be my luck,
I think I would decline to go and play if called to go, but then again, neither the wife or I would even want to go flying out there and be stuck in
the big crappy city no matter what we could win. We would rather go on Wheel of Fortune. They travel around and even second or third place can win
more than those on Jeopardy.
The movie ''Quiz Show'' was the true story of that game show where Van Doren won so much. The movie was very well done and should be a ''must'' see
for all to grasp the the degree to which corporate TV will stoop to snare viewers.
