    What was the accepted answer?......whammy? Would they have taken "Wang", "Vibrato", "Tremolo", etc.?

    Well the category was 'bar' so maybe any of those + 'bar'may have been accepted
    But ' whammy bar' is what the judges were looking for

    I had Jeopardy on but got a nice nap in that half hour. In fairness to me at noon I got the first half of a cap done on a tooth. I stressed but it really wasn’t too bad.

    Saw this too and answered “whammy bar” before the answer was read.
    And I agree that Ken is doing a great job. I said a while back, when Jennings was brought on as a producer, that unless someone steps up and runs rampant as a guest host Ken Jennings will be the permanent host.
    He’s calming down, getting more comfortable and I like his style

    I was rather surprised to hear the "What is whammy" response. And impressed. I thought it was going to be like the time the category was "Football," and after one person had the wrong response, no one had any response to the rest of the category.

    I'd much rather hear the vibrato tailpiece called a "whammy" bar than "tremolo." I wish Leo had looked up the definitions of "tremolo" and "vibrato."

    I forget the exact stats or numbers

    ( I'm a longtime Jeopardy junkie)

    but Ken Jennings ( an IT guy or software engineer by profession and pro Trivia nut)
    is a Top 3 ( forget if 1, 2, or 3) All Time Jeopardy $$ winner, along with Brad Rutter, and James Holzhauer.
    These guys are ' Mt.Rushmore

    Ken, won the most consecutive games of anyone, 70+ games.Mind-blowing

    He is also really good on camera personality-charismatic, polite- real pro

    I hate it on Jeopardy when they run out of time and don't get to all the questions. Because the categories that go untouched are always ones like "British Rock Bands" or "Super Bowls"... ones that I would actually know!
