I think they've been booking dopes to take on this guy from the start. They realized he had a quick trigger finger and knew he'd win against lesser competition.

I'm surprised The Globe didn't report Jennings is really an alien and is getting the answer directly from Alpha Centuri. Tom Somach???? Now that's a reliable, credible source. Wonder if that assclown is still touting ESB?

In the past the Globe has said aliens have landed on the White House lawn.

The Globe is little more (if anything) than a Euro version of the king rag of bullshit....the Nat Eq

They don't have to give the guy the answers for it to be fixed. They're in the basis of making money, not celebrating America's brains.

"WAS Jeopardy! fixed...? That’s what game show experts are wondering."

Um....what qualifies someone as a "game show expert"?

No, Jeopardy is not fixed. They would never risk their multi-million dollar franchise by engaging in such manipulation. As soon as it was found out that the $64,000 dollar question game show was fixed, they booted it from the air. I don't think Jeopardy, which has been around for over 30 years is willing to risk the same fate.
Ken Jennings just has the lethal combination to be very successful on this show. He's very intelligent, but even more important, he's fast on the signaling button. Mastering the signaling button is the ultimate test to being successful on this show. Much of the time, by the time the new challengers each night adjust to mastering signaling in, Jennings already has a $10,000 advantage. Knowing how the signaling device works is a huge advantage over any newcomer just starting fresh. A lot of these contestants know the answers, but can't get in to respond as they are beaten to the punch by another contestant who rings in quicker. You must be able to time it where as soon as the question is read, you are signaling in, and of course actually know the correct answer.

With the above mentioned skills, Ken Jennings will be tough to beat. There's probably someone out there who can beat him, there usually always is, but I think it's going to take some doing. Most likely he'll eventually get greedy and start betting too much on daily double questions that will lead to his downfall. If he's smart he'll play the way he has up until now, and if he does so, he could be on this show for quite some time. It would be foolish to play otherwise. Why would anyone risk making an average of $40,000 a day (actually more than that because they tape multiple shows when they do taping a couple days each week). The only way this guy can screw things up, is by being greedy.

Of course it is fixed

The show needed a ratings boost and the guy had all the answers before time

No way one guy smarter than everyone else

If you beleive he is your a real dummy

HUH? Okay, I'll bite. So if they don't give the guy the answers, how is it fixed? (Maybe they give his opponents some of that wacky weed that makes you post such ridiculous statements?)

Here we go again, any feat has to be discounted. Our society is paranoid schizophrenic, we just can't have an extraordinary thing happen for some reason any more.

In the past the Globe has said aliens have landed on the White House lawn.

Now this is freaking hilarious!

This young stalwart is the posterboy for good clean living

I bet he's out at the Pat Boone Milk Bar as I write, toasting another homogenized skyward

Kudos to you young fellow, for hanging on to those ever-valuable brain cells as long as humanly possible. You're an inspiration! Bravo!

If you actually believe the things posted in the Globe, who exactly is "the real dummy"?

Not the Globe Son

I said way back the thing is rigged

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ONE GUY KNOWING MORE THAN SOMEONE ELSE ON EVERY EPISODE UNLESS YOU KNOW THE ANSWERS ALREADY

J.J. has been crying FIX on this guy for awhile.

How about they bump up their screening process a bit. Some of these people clearly had no chance.

"HUH? Okay, I'll bite."

Yes, you certainly do.

There are any number of ways the show could insure that the guy keeps winning other than give him the answers, including manipulating the opponents he faces, steering the key questions toward his strengths (the nominal categories need have nothing to do with the actual questions) or putting epicac in his opponents' Cheerios. They don't have to do anything that doesn't have deniability, and the idea that people should respond with horror at the mere suggestion that a multi-billion dollar enterprise would do what it had to to rescue a dying franchise like Jeopardy, when its historical counterparts were doing so forty years ago even though businessmen were substantially more fair-minded and decent then than they are today, is about what I'd expect from a fvcking chihuahua like you

CZ,
So what you're saying is it's not fixed! Thanks for making my point for me. Everytime you post here you validate the reason one should not do drugs. It's too late for you though, you have lost any capacity for reasoned, logical discourse, so smoke away, you brain damaged retard.
