Is Jeopardy rigged?
I've been on Jeopardy as a contestant. It is possible that it is rigged. They never fully explained why the buzzer didn't work when we pushed it. I believe the issue is "energy". Behind the screen where we contestants stood, there were show employees who kept stage whispering, "Keep your energy up." This means they want personality in their contestants, and that it should not flag at any time. They want facial expressions, lively movements. Considering that, if one contestant exhibits these qualities over the other contestants, they can delay the button so that the more energetic of them rings in more often and thus has the advantage. I met a writer who wrote a book about the program. He was a former employee. He said that my theory is possible. He denied knowing anything about it. The employees who work with the ringing-in system are somewhat segregated from the rest of the employees, he said.

Yes, most if not all game shows and contests are rigged, just like all elections of any importance are rigged. Welcome to adulthood in the big bad world!

No.

The reason why your buzzer didn't work is the other people hit the button faster.

How, exactly, do you feel when the elevator doesn't immediately move when you get in and press the button?!


Have you ever noticed the conspiracy against those who live and work on the 13th floor?!

Re: Is Jeopardy rigged?
After last night, I'm convinced Jeopardy is rigged. The seven-time champion suddenly became a mediocre player. It seemed as though she was letting the other contestants get ahead. In Final Jeopardy, her wrong question/answer AND her too-high wager, were uncharacteristically simple-minded. Previously, she had totally dominated in every game, broke a record and earned almost $150K. I think someone decided it was time for her to go.

Sounds reasonable. It's entertainment after all. If the drones watching this crap tired of her face, then her time in the spotlight is up.

I have been a faithful watcher for 20 years. I was totally disgusted with the contestant that stayed on there for about a year and stopped watching. Now, I am again disappointed. There is no probably way a contestant can hit ALL FOUR daily doubles night after night. Just have a fair, intellectual game!

Watching it now, and I can read one of the contestant's expressions to say that she is pressing the button but it's not responding.

Have none of you watched the movie 'Quiz Show'? After watching it, you will see it's legacy in any game show. The facial expression conspiracy, the attractiveness of contestants, and, of course, personability: the network wants their winning contestant to be someone viewers like and can look up to in order to improve ratings.
