Highly questionable.  Is there any doubt she knew the answer?  The show is taped, they could have handled it better.  Even the next girl who was awarded didnt like the outcome.
 
2012-12-22 06:19:17 AM
Guess it was in the rule book. She was buzzed quickly and Sajak moved right along. What a tough break for her.

If Pat's yacht gets torpedoed next time he is out for a cruise, I am sure it will just be a coincidence.

1.  It sounded to me like she said the 'g'.
2.  So no one with an accent can ever win?
 
2012-12-22 10:52:51 AM
That sucks so hard. I think she showed iron discipline for not getting even a little snooty after that.
Poor woman.

Agreed. I think I would've gone all ape-poopy.

I get to meet Pat Sajak! Like, I suppose you could do better than that. No way! Because it seems to me that he would be a pretty decent guy, I must say. What If we became best friends -- best friends in the so I would just like, phone his house up, and say, "Is Pat there? Just tell him it's me!" Sense, now that I think of it. Like, I suppose Pat Sajak doesn't have, like, over a million friends, probably. But then again, maybe he doesn't. It's difficult to say. Oh, this is completely insane!

She just guessed the f*cking "G". She should have put Pat in a chokehold and finished him.
 
2012-12-22 11:04:36 AM
IIRC half the English speakers do not pronounce the hard G.

Pshaw, you're makin that up. I'm not accusin you of lyin, I'm just sayin I don't agree.
 
2012-12-22 11:09:47 AM
If I was one of the other contestants, I would have refused to spin until they gave her a chance to re-answer. I mean, it's a freakin' Christmas show. And if you listen carefully, you can hear the "G" trailing at the end of the word anyway.
 
2012-12-22 11:10:30 AM
So if I get pulled over I can protest my ticket if the officer says I was drivin too fast?
 
2012-12-22 11:13:34 AM
What a bullshiat move. She handled it far better than I would've.
 
2012-12-22 11:16:50 AM
Just another reason to hate this brain dead show.

/ I'll take the ceramic dalmatian for $154, then smash it over your head, Pat

2012-12-22 11:18:26 AM
What the hell. Maybe, maybe if the G wasn't already up there I'd agree with the judgment. But this was obviously a case of a lady with an accent. She was working very hard to pronounce the letters individually but when it came down to giving the answers she went full regional.
I'm not sure what to make of the change in Pat's tone.
 
2012-12-22 11:26:33 AM
I'm a Northerner who doesn't share the first contestant's pronunciation -- I basically sound just like Bob Uecker -- and it's still obvious to me that she got robbed. It's a song lyric, there's no possible ambiguity.

Stupid judges.

ENGLISH....DO YOU SPEAK IT?

yeah i feel sorry for that guy...now he has to go back to barracks and explain how his Dumbtucky accent cost him the win there while his other bunk brothers ridicu...oh...wait....

Amen to that.

Well, Pat Sajak is a world-class asshole.

I thought they judges on Jeopardy! were strict, but even then they usually give some common-sense leeway, and it's not uncommon to come back from a commercial break and have Alex Trbek make a correction, 90% of which are in the contestants' favor.

Alright, fess up. Who was thinking semen for the first word?
 
2012-12-22 01:04:33 PM
I'm pretty sure it's in the rules that every letter must be pronounced which is why even the dumbest of contestants sound like an English professor when solving. People have made this mistake in the past without the benefit of a hick drawl. If that wasn't the case then people would always mumble through the answer.

Based on subby's headline, I must meekly raise my hand.

Me.

I assumed there was going to be some amusing double-entendre based on that, especially since was wearing a U.S. Navy uniform, and might have been thinking "seaman."

Was watching Jeopardy years ago and the answer was 'what is aluminum' but the guy for some reason said aluminum the farked up way an English person would (he wasn't English) and it was not accepted.

I would have flipped the wheel over, thrown Pat through the big word board, and screamed obscenities while stripping-off as much of my clothes as possible before security tackled me.

Probably not a good idea to ever put me on TV.

Or, the greatest idea ever.

That's not a hard G. Every English speaker pronounces the hard G (in words like girl, gorilla, and gogo dancer). A soft G is found in words like gyrate, giardia, and intelligence.

The sound found at the end of "swimming" (a sound that only appears in the coda, or end part of a syllable, in English) is ng. It's one sound (phoneme), called an "engma" in linguistics.
