Jeopardy or the Wheel

Between Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune, which show would you choose?

Tough one for me; I like the challenge of Jeopardy! (and Alex Trebek, he’s got the Bob Vila cool vibe happening) but I can kick ass at Wheel of Fortune. I suppose, all things equal, I’ll make mine Jeopardy!.

Definately Jeopardy! Wheel looks easy, and I always solve the puzzle quick on TV, but I suspect I would fail miserably in the studio. I still want to try out for Millionaire though.

No question: Jeopardy!

Especially after being on Russian Roulette, myself. I gotta win me some cash on a game show, and I'm picking the big J! when it comes back around here in a couple of months.

Mine is the Wheel. I like it cause its easy. I could never get those answers to jeopardy. I'm not dumb by any means, but my brain just can't remember all those facts.

I say Jeopardy. Wheel may be too easy. A year or two ago, I would have said Wheel (despite J! being my favourite), because the money was better, but Jeopardy doubled all the question values, making it quite nice. Plus, when do you see a tourney of champions on Wheel? That wouldnt exactly have the same feel to it on Wheel:

Pat: "Let's welcome back our returning champion, Dave Walls! (applause)"

Dave: "Thanks, Pat. It's great to be back. (Winking at Vanna)"

Pat: "So Dave, your win last time around was so dramatic! Tell us about your strategy."

Dave: "Well, Pat, I wanted to solve the puzzle and win a lot of money."

Pat: "Truly, these are the words of a champion."

Vanna: "Marry Me!"

Jeopardy- They involved it in White Men Can't Jump. Wheel hasn't had anything like that yet.

wheel of fortune i like it because there are more rounds than JEOPARDY!.
