I’ve been taking advantage of my new-found free time to fully immerse myself in the “Trivia Quiz/Hangman Happy-Time Fun Hour” during the evenings.
Which means, of course, that I have re-started watching “Jeopardy!” at 6 p.m. after a more than decade-long absence, and now also added “Wheel Of Fortune” to the agenda.
I’m pretty good at Jeopardy!, but my puzzle-solving skills on the Wheel are…well, a bit lacking at times.
But I do enjoy making “bad” guesses, such as MY PUTT PUTT IS DANK for this one!
The correct solution was MY WORK HERE IS DONE.
Also of note: Alex Trebek is introduced as the HOST of “Jeopardy!” – which is proper and correct. Pat Sajak and Vanna White, on the other hand, are introduced as the STARS of “Wheel Of Fortune.” OK, sure, they’re stars – but I think for any kind of game or quiz show, the term HOST is more appropriate.
BTW, I did audition for “Jeopardy!” during a “casting call” in San Francisco back in 1996 – back then, you had to mail in postcards and hope that your name was drawn. I sent in 120 postcards 🙂 and was lucky enough to be called for the audition. The first round of questions consisted of 50 questions (or answers, technically) – to move on to the next round, you had to answer 35 of them correctly. Guess how many I got right? Yep – 34.
