    Favorite moment of episode: The audience applauded Sarah for running “THE MOON”. However, she did not, and attempted to tell the audience such, saying “No, no I didn’t!”

    Randi composed a poem for her interview: Why journey from Kalamazoo to LA / What makes this a worthwhile trek / To get to play Jeopardy!; be on TV / But above all meet Alex Trebek!

  2. After a question about Pluto’s moon, Charon, Sarah looked offstage, shook her head, and said “No,no it I isn’t.” What was that all about?

      The crowd was applauding for her running the category.

      Problem was — she hadn’t run the category. Randi picked up the $600 clue. She was simply telling the audience that she hadn’t run the category.

  3. The Kelly’s Island clue saying it was the walleye capital of the world was wrong!!! Port Clinton OH has that distinction. We live up there so when I saw the clue was like WHAT??

    • The clue read:

      Ohioans call Kelleys Island in this lake “the walleye capital of the world”

      Here’s the Kelleys Island Chamber of Commerce web site.

      Its location in Lake Erie makes Kelleys Island a perfect spot for water activities. Fishermen refer to Kelleys Island as the “Walleye Capital of the World.”

      In light of this primary source, I see no issue with the clue.

      That said, this is a fan site. I have no affiliation with the show.
