* May 17, 2018: It's the first round of the finals for 2018's Teacher's Tournament, and the Final Jeopardy! clue asks contestants to put the letter "P" in front of the name of a back problem to get an alternate name for graphite, or pencil lead.

* October 2017: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PhkfZkvPd0 We are blessed with]] [[AgentPeacock Austin Rogers]], perhaps the quirkiest and sassiest contestant ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTjPoz7MMKs ever]]'' to grace the floor of ''Jeopardy!'', compared to a real-life [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Kramer]], with a mess of EinsteinHair. [[BunnyEarsLawyer And he is a startlingly good player.]] A New York bartender with a ton of showmanship and a love for ChewingTheScenery. Almost every time he fouls up a question, he says, "Yeah, ''whatever.''" Or if he gets a question right, he makes a big triumphant "nailed it" gesture, goes, "Mic drop." (performs the actual gesture), or even a HappyDance. Every show starts with him miming something, like mixing a drink in the bar, being on the telephone, or playing with a Rubik's cube. He also managed to get on ''Series/TheTonightShow'', and told Creator/JimmyFallon [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T86T9wMn77s he thinks Alex Trebek is a hologram]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd5ItEC9MV8 managed to charm the heart of James Corden]] on ''Series/TheLateLateShow''. And just to prove he wasn't adverse to a haircut, he went and trimmed down his hair during the weekend after his tenth consecutive day on the show (for his late night appearance).

* October 30th, 2017: The clue for Final Jeopardy!: "This 1870 novel has a ship whose name is from the Greek for 'sailor' & a captain whose name is Latin for 'no one'." One contestant writes down "What is ''The Ballad of Cap'n Crunch''?" Alex's mellow reading of this response adds to the funny factor.
