Garth Brooks' Dublin Concerts May NOT Happen!

Filed under: Music MinuteSad Sad

garth brooks dublin concerts may not happen

This would be so sad for all of the fans that have already bought tickets!

It was supposed to be a series of happy events.

Garth Brooks planned five comeback tours in and around Dublin but unfortunately the tickets went on sale before being officially approved!

So while fans scooped up tix for the concerts on July 25th through July 29th, two of those shows have already been nixed by the Dublin City Council - the ones in charge of approving permits for shows like this.

The reasons for the denial of at least two shows is because of "the scale, magnitude and number of the concerts" and the "cumulative effect on residents and some businesses."

And while the three other Brooks shows are still in play, they aren't a definite as of yet!

Here's what Brooks' promoter Peter Aiken said

We don’t see this record being broken anytime soon! Except by himself when he shows up for work on Monday! LOLz!

Alex Trebek has been hosting Jeopardy since 1984, and he’s finally gotten some huge recognition for it!

That’s over 416,000 questions he’s asked people!

And guess what… Alex isn’t done quizzing contestants yet! He said

This Lady! She's Won More Jeopardy! Games Than Any Other Woman In History & Has $400K To Show For It!

Filed under: TV NewsInspiration

There’s no denying it!

Julia Collins is smart.

Julia Collins is rich.

And Julia Collins has made history this week, becoming not only the winningest woman in Jeopardy! history, but she’s one game away from taking the title of second place for most consecutive wins by ANY contestant, EVER!

Last night, 31-year-old Collins won her 19th game, bringing her total winnings to a jaw-dropping $410,000! That also ties her with 2005 winner David Madden, who also won 19 games in a row.

The only person to have a longer streak is Ken Jennings, who of course went on an unheard of 74 game run that netted him $2,520,700!

Her good fortune couldn’t have come at a better time either! Julia has been jobless since the beginning of the year!

But she foresaw her success on the game show circuit a LONG time ago! She predicted she’d be a Jeopardy! champ in her eighth-grade yearbook!

Julia explained:

"I was a pretty nerdy kid. I liked to shout out the answers to the TV like everybody else does.”

Tonight, Julia will be shouting out her answers while trying to stay alive for her 20th win!

Our fingers are firmly crossed for you, girl!

Jeopardy!'s 11-Day Champ Finally Defeated! Which Clue Stumped Arthur Chu After A Record Run & $297,200?!

Filed under: TV News

Oh how the mighty have fallen!

Arthur Chu seemed unstoppable after an impressive 11-day winning streak and aggressive playing strategy on Jeopardy!. But the 30-year-old trivia whiz was finally defeated last night!

Arthur sparked some controversy last month with his renegade playing style which had him jumping all over the answer board, selecting clues from all different categories in an attempt to throw off his opponents.

And it worked!

He’s walking away with nearly $300K and a spot in Jeopardy! history - he is third in all time wins behind Ken Jennings (who had a 74-game winning streak) and Dave Madden (who won 19 times).

Not too shabby, Arthur!

He seems to be doing OK with the loss too. Not only does he get to go home and count all of his money now, but he gets to stop and make a few more TV appearances on the way!

Arthur announced on Twitter:

Jeopardy! College Contestants Avoided An African-American History Category?! You Be The Judge! Watch The Controversial Video HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsGIFs

It’s College Championship Week on Jeopardy!

And it also happens to be Black History month!

So the producers of the long-running game show thought they would include a category of African-American History during February 17th’s broadcast.

The only problem was, the three caucasian contestants on the show that day apparently didn’t want anything to do with those clues!

As you can see in the pic above, the category went UNTOUCHED throughout the entire Double Jeopardy round until all of the other answers had been questioned!

Apparently these college students knew more about animals in New Zealand than they did about black people in America, since they opted to tackle that topic first!

Yeah, the Kiwi Fauna category went before the African-American one!

The internet erupted following the telecast with some suggesting there was some slight racism being served up on the program!

But Texas A&M contestant Tucker Pope says he and his fellow players just wanted to move left to right across the board! He explained:
