Hmm, this is a bummer if it seemed so. I'm curious why this was your take? Fist pump = happy to have just put 20k plus into my daughter's college fund. I'm an emotional guy, so those things just happen. Didn't plan it.

The point to the other contestants, maybe? After the win it was a bit awkward since they warned us not to reach over to shake hands (Eric, the player in the middle, is about 5' 4" and was on a pedestal, so they were worried about him forgetting he was elevated and falling). I wanted to say good game in some way and that was my spur of the moment alternative. Of course you couldn't hear me saying "good game" over the music, so maybe it was a curious gesture.

In any case, hopefully the shows were entertaining. Fun experience...nice to plug board games on national tv and to convert all of those years playing quiz bowl back in HS and college into some future education for the little ones.

You must have watched a different episode than I did. Brent seemed pretty happy to have won, and justly so.
