Hm. I think I’d like to give a round of applause to all three players here on the betting! Nothing wrong with it tonight, at first glance!

    Maybe I need better glasses, but it appeared to me that Tiombi wrote Purloing instead of Purloined for the Final Jeopardy response on December 16. Anyone else notice this???

    • Angela:

      The show’s judges have the ability to view the responses as written letter by letter. It is clear to former contestants that she ran out of room on the side yet did write “purloined”. Had she not, the judges would have ruled accordingly.

    • I agree 100%.

      • You may agree with her but you’re wrong.

        Once again: the show’s judges have the ability to view the responses as written letter by letter. It is clear to former contestants that she ran out of room on the side yet did write “purloined”. Had she not, the judges would have ruled accordingly.
