  1. I’ve been watching every game and no it’s definitely not rigged.. she knew what to wager because the standard is for first place to bid enough to win by 1 dollar

  2. Rigged. The genius’ that are on for like 20 days, (bad actors some), answering impossible questions, are then usurped because they don’t know what 2+2 is? That is called RIGGED.
