2. Dr Sanjay Gupta is my favorite.

My mom thinks Robin Roberts is the best.

6. Aaron may be going back to the Packers

but he's in my top three. I think the best person is the show's producer, Mike Richards. Anderson was also very good.

8. Love Anderson too.

Mr Lake is from Green Bay. His family think Rodgers would quit FB immediately if he gets the Jeopardy gig.

5. I disagree - way too obtrusive - spoiler

but hey Matt is a Brainiac - damn he's good and so unassuming.

Will be a seven day winner shortly and could be close to $250,000.

20. Okay malaise, you made me have to look up obtrusive lol

"noticeable or prominent in an unwelcome or intrusive way."

Burton is not my favorite just because he's seems too stumbly.

And I actually don't think of female voice fits the show. Except I did think that Robin Roberts was the only one whose voice seemed to fit.

10. Why do you think they never say he's at Yale?

They ask about his course work and never mention the school, just that he's "from New Haven, Connecticut." It's highly selective and hard to get into. Joe Scarborough got a "no" from Yale Law School and he's never gotten over it.

12. He's hinted at that and recently kinda admitted it.

He seems to have a kind of us vs. them kind of thing. I sense that it eats at him. He puts on this dumb act of being just someone who went to a state school. But he has this enlarged ego that I am sure it eats at him a little.

Didn't know he was rejected by Yale.

14. Now you know. I always suspected he was pretty sensitive about not getting into Yale Law.

It's a rejection of him as this larger than life hero who walks among us...

Hope they pick him - he'd be good for another 20 years

16. Is he the one who is a producer of the show (or was)?

He was good in that he had Alex's style which he must have gained during those years with Alex doing the show night after night. He's fine, and in our comfort zone. The question is: do we even WANT that? I guess I could argue both sides of that question but then I ask myself: why do I even CARE?

19. Agree. And he's not from New Haven either. Although

I've never seen a contestant that knew everything from obscure pop culture TV shows to obscure Kings of England.. the whole thing may kind of be a scam. Say you're a PhD student and say you live in New Haven and boom everyone thinks Yale. It would be interesting to know exactly what school he is going to.
