Danger! guests have the opportunity to show their skills and knowledge through the game. However, the host gives them a chance to talk a bit about themselves and show their personality during their introduction. Sometimes these segments can be incredibly awkward. Danger! fans have reacted to an episode featuring what they call the ‘weirdest guests in the show’s history’ after seeing their awkward introduction with Alex Trebek.
‘Danger!’ guests usually each receive an introduction
The shape of Danger! remains substantially the same, the guests being introduced. The host is pulling from an info sheet that players have previously submitted, but they don’t know what production is going to pull from it. Some of these exchanges between Danger! guests and host are a light and fun way to get to know them, their hobbies and their accomplishments.
In Ken Jennings’ case, he had been a returning champion for so long that Trebek finally ran out of things to say in the opener. Some Danger! the guests have infectious personalities that only make the audience want to root more, but sometimes that’s not quite the case.
‘Danger!’ fans pondered the ‘weirdest guests in the show’s history’
Danger! Season 28 brought guests AJ Motley, Laura Sikes Jambon, and Tracey Rhys to the show. Trebek knew what was coming when he started the game saying, “You’re going to love this one. He first introduced Rhys of New York, who was in the Order of Blessed Saint Scully the Enigmatic.
“Yeah, well, some people would call it an internet cult,” Rhys explained. “We prefer to think of it as a cyber abbey dedicated to the wisdom of Dana Scully’s character from X files. The Siblings of Saint Scully.
Trebek recalled that he made a brief appearance on the show, but his fans keep asking him about it. Then he moved to Jambon. He asked her why she had a pygmy goat as a pet in college, and she said it was “for the cuteness factor.” Trebek asked why she didn’t have something else, like a cat.
“I had a little cat and one time my little goat ate a piece of his fur,” Jambon said. “She didn’t like it. Billy also liked to eat a lot of things like a three wick candle, an entire bag of Hershey kisses, and sadly he met his death eating a bag of Quikrete.
Trebek asked if it was a 60lb or 80lb bag and she replied that he was “insensitive”, which he agreed with a laugh.
Danger! fans called them the “weirdest guests in the show’s history” and pointed out that Trebek didn’t even bother to speak with Motley after that. Even some fans who tend to skip introductions called this “awkward” exchange one of the show’s best.
AJ Motley became 2 times champion
Motley was the only one of Danger! guests who weren’t able to chat with Trebek during the introductions. However, he was the previous week’s champion, so this was his second match on the show. Motley managed to pick up his first win the night before with $20,801.
He ultimately remained champion after that episode, finishing with $35,201 to Ham’s $31,600 and Rhys’ $2,200. Unfortunately, Motley lost the following week to Liza Veeneman with $8,599 to $12,800. At least it got ahead of Brian Mueller’s $0.
