Video of tonight’s test from fan site.



Thank you. This Jeopardy forum has lots of comments that it was a brutal test.

If anyone can find a list of questions with answers, please post it.

If the tests are all the same you have no chance unless you cheat. You all need to conference call during the test.

I strongly suspect there is cheating like crazy on these tests. If anyone in my house could help, I would have been tempted. Actually, my son plays the oboe and he might have helped on that one, but I think I got it right anyway.

Nope. I might have guessed her if I'd thought of the idea, but I drew a blank.
