Are you sure she hadn't seen him play? That contradicts what Alex explicitly said.

I did clock that she noticeably bristled when Alex stated the assumption that her "bet the farm" DD move was in imitation of James. She obviously wants to get credit for knowing what's up on her own.

Yeah, that's certainly how it looked.

Here's a different take on the buzzer thing. If they are going to make that aspect so important, why not let the audience see what they are doing? Maybe have it be something where you have to slap two big buttons a couple feet apart in quick succession.
