Pretty sure I nailed it last time. I don't know why nobody has contacted me yet.

With my luck they'd put me up against a supercomputer anyways.

I've done this two years in a row now and they haven't contacted me.

Third time's the charm?

an old friend was on back during Thanksgiving and she won by betting it all on Final Jeopardy. Lost the next night doing the same.

That's rare. Female contestants' betting "strategies" drive my father apeshit.

Funny thing is she is brilliant, but admittedly not the best at math, and she said she panicked when figuring out how much to bet so just bet everything and it paid off. It worked the first time so she did it again the 2nd night, the difference being she actually needed to go all in the 2nd night and had she answered the question correctly she would have won then as well.

The betting strategies by some on there drive me crazy as well.
