comment “I am going to attend” vs “I am attending”
They are equal. Your two answers show that some people think one is better, but other people think the opposite. If the speaker and the listener are in the two different camps all subtlety is lost.

comment What does “top half” mean in “There are only two seeded players left in the top half of the draw”?
generally in a seeded tournament the top seeded player would be in the top row of the bracket, and the 2nd seed player would be in the bottom row of the bracket, in some cases the they put the 2nd seed player in the top row of the lower half. The goal is to have the two best players meet in the finals, not in the first round.

comment How closely synonymous are “forward” and “straightforward”?
I have viewed the taping of an episode of this program, though not this specific episode. When there is a scoring change they do address it during commercial break. They can take as much time as is necessary. One time they spent 15 minutes deciding what was the correct answer and then determining how they would address it. If it is late in the game they can even go to the moment of the mistake and then edit it a new start. During the period the judges are discussing their options, the contestants have their back to the game board so they can't try to map out their future strategy.
