I saw that happen several weeks ago also.   Alex told one of the players to hurry between number choices and the buzzer sounded and he told her she took too long and needed to be quicker in her selections.

Was there ever a mention of an offscreen timer so contestants would know how long they could take?  This seems very random to me.

I don't know what the official rule was, but there have been a few instances in this Buzzr run where you can hear an offstage voice say "hurry," then the contestant finally chooses their second number. So they do get a warning.

And I think, like on Scrabble as the years went on, the unspoken "timer" got a little lax as contestants improved at naturally making a decision in a few seconds.

Speaking of this offstage voice, has anyone else noticed that there is often an audible yelp right before a Wild card is revealed? I am thinking that was a low-tech cue to ring the bell sfx. Maybe I am just hearing things.

I angrily switched off today's rerun of CC. The puzzle was solved with only nine frames revealed. Trebek during the readout says snarkily, "Sometimes our puzzles leave a lot to be desired." Jerk.

Calling Alex a jerk in 2019 is certainly A Choice (tm), especially over a joke he made thirty years ago.

It's not you.  Also hear it in the Car round.

Here's where I wish Alex Trebek was a board member.
