  1. i was watching the show last night and a black lady was the champion the day before but she was going first in double Jeopardy. All of a sudden she is no longer on the show in double jeopardy. What happened to her?

    • At least one local TV station played part of the wrong episode between the first interview and Double Jeopardy.

  2. I watched the episodes with Chandreyi Ghosh and noticed that she appears to have an enlarged thyroid, otherwise known as a goiter. I understand this can be a common problem, but as I work in a medical clinic, I am just curious if she had been evaluated for the enlargement. I hope all is well, and she did amazing in the rounds in which she participated!

  3. Claudia, the music teacher, the winner from a few days ago, had to go take a job.(?)
    Alex said they were going to bring her back next week or something .

    • Isn’t Claudia the lady their bringing back because of the way the Final Jeopardy question was worded? They asked about the astronauts on the first moon landing crew. One of them had the same last name as the first female pilot of a space shuttle (Collins). She got it wrong by saying “Aldrin”. They’re letting her come back because the question made it sounds like it was one of the astronauts who landed on the moon. The lady who won got it wrong but only bet enough so she still won, the guy got it right but didn’t bet enough, and Claudia got it wrong and lost. Alex said it was their mistake. She must have complained to the producers. I don’t blame her.
