DUMBEST JEOPARDY CONTESTANT EVER!
Wolf Blitzer on celebrity Jeopardy just now finsihed up the Double Jeopardy round $4,600 in the red.

Normally that would disqualify him from the Final Jeopardy round but apparently there is a policy to let all celbrities play.

So they gave him $1,00 and let him in.

It was friggin hilarious! Some of his answers were unbelieviably stupid.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

25. Wolf is unqualified to anything except read the script they place
in his hands and using the talking points his owners give him.

57. He's sure got that "slapped up the back of the head" look ... all that's missing is the drool.
Maybe that's why he wears the beard ... to soak up the drool.

Blitzer: "What is a sheep in wolf's clothing?"

Trebek: "No, that's YOU, you dimwitted hack."

6. People are now actually dying of cancer because Wolf Blitzer sucked so bad.
Sean Connery couldn't believe how stupid Wolf is.

They could have dug up Robert Novak and he would have done better. No, I mean that literally.

They were giving him just the easiest questions in categories like "Military" and he also only played Final because of the celeb rule.

19. I missed three questions total in both rounds. Three. Wolfie was dumb as a brick.
Thought the winner was a bright guy, although the questions were unbelievably easy. They need to dump celebrity jeopardy; it's too stupid for words.

Unless they had the REAL Sean Connery on. Along with Darrell Hammond, and Jay Leno ('Jaywalking"). I would pay to see that.

he guessed the right answer 'Ronald Regan' but he still ended up last with $2,000. What a dumbass!!

33. He was playing for a charity so that's why
they all get to go into final Jeopardy, even if in the red at the end of Double Jeopardy. So the charity ends up with something even if a total dumbass is playing for them.

34. Alex tried to reassure Wolf by stressing that Andy "was fast on the buzzer."
Frankly, I think that little bit of patronizing was only more embarrassing for Wolf.

44. He should be ashamed to call himself a "journalist" - see the rehearsal from last nights Conan here:
http://www.tonightshowwithconanobrien.com/video/clips/a... /

Wolf ended up in the red during rehearsal too - funny shit from Andy. CNN should be ASHAMED to have someone like that who "claims" to be a journalist.

On a brighter note - Yay Andy Richter! Dude is smart and funny. Glad to see him kickin some ass!

I do remember seeing Michael McKean on there a while back and for some reason I stereotyped him for the comedic roles he has played. Dumb on my part as Mr. McKean is one intelligent human being. He kicked butt on Jeopardy...

53. Sounds like Wolf had Maria Bartiromo as a study partner.

Category: The Capital, for $100
A: In 1989 hundreds of pro-democracy demonstrators were killed by the military at Tiananmen Square in this capital.
Q: Maria buzzes in and makes a face for five seconds. A five second face, to her dismay, is incorrect. Armed with a functioning buzzer, Maria prepares to actually verbalize a question next time.
