blinkingblinking, Teen Jeopardy! is a two-week tournament they do every year; much like the annual college tournament and the Tournament of Champions, they pre-record the shows and then replay them for a few weeks. I assume it’s to let the staff take a vacation.
I have a hard time believing he actually said that. I just heard the f, nothing else. It’s not like they don’t edit the show - Alex Trebek blows answers all the time, and at the end of the show they re-record them.
For me it was crucial to turn up my headphone volume. At normal volume, I just heard the F sound, but at higher volume, f-bomb loud and clear. The funny thing, my wife and I were watching the show and didn’t notice it then.
Hope you don’t mind a slight hijack, as this doesn’t really deserve it’s own thread.
I can’t view the video here at work, but wasn’t this the kid in the middle, who was leading going into Final Jeopardy? It appeared to me that he thought he had won the match after getting the final question correct, but realized when he saw his final dollar amount that he calculated incorrectly, and hadn’t bet enough. I wonder what he was muttering under his breath at that moment!
Not necessarily. The day I taped, they decided to accept an answer, and they re-recorded the who segment, changed the numbers, and somehow inserted it seamlessly into the show. If the kid really said it, and they noticed it, they definitely had the technology to zap that track. Perhaps he really did say it and they did zap most of it.
