Quick Recap – November 11, 2015


Here’s the recap from the third of five quarterfinals – the first I’ve been able to watch “live”! If you watched our #JeopardyLivePanel ToC Preview episode on Sunday, you heard it slip out that this episode took NINETY MINUTES to tape!

Also, Kaya Chua (contestant from last season and multiple #JeopardyLivePanel panellist) was in the audience for the semifinals and finals, and has agreed to provide some audience-person thoughts next week for our coverage! I’m really looking forward to the insight!

Today’s contestants:
Matt Jackson
John Schultz
Jennifer Giles

I can’t believe these scores in the tournament so far! The players have certainly been up to the task! Also, any category where your possible response lines are “Emerson, Lake, and Palmer” and “Tinker, Evers, and Chance” are A-OK in my book!

I’ve seen a few comments as well that tonight’s game was too easy. What do you think? Leave a comment!

Also, some insight as to why the game took 90 minutes to tape:
