Fitting article image. https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/229956/1aeda38f-af13-4aa9-acac-2803b96becf4/Clipboard214156776.jpg
I've watched this guy. it's almost inhuman how quickly he fires off responses. You can tell he doesn't even entirely take it seriously, by final jeopardy he's so far ahead he dicks around when writing in a money amount and writes it out as specific dates in relation to people he knows, like birthdates and such. It's almost scary how this dude's mind must work.
I've always wondered about this happening, especially after Jennings.
Dude got ahold of some Soy Sauce.
honestly reads like an onion article title
I haven't been watching - is he one of those fuckers who non-stop smashes the buzzer? I hate those contestants.
This isn't really relevant to him winning all the money, but god damn his smile is kind of creepy.
I'm sure he's a lovely dude but he looks like he's waiting for the right moment to sink his teeth into my eyeball.
With Trebek's cancer diagnosis, this will likely be the final season of Jeopardy with him helming the show. In a fitting response, the universe has summoned the final, ultimate Jeopardy champion to satisfy his lifelong, unquenchable thirst for relevant questions to his answers.
Do I even want to ask what the hell this was supposed to be?
This idea couldn't have been executed better.
It's a reference to the book / film John Dies at the End. A drug called "Soy Sauce" (or just "The Sauce") gives users temporary supernatural abilities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbnWDDp4s1c&feature=youtu.be&t=81
Can't they just ban serial winners?
they can but it looks better if they can prove they have a reason to
Maybe he made the wish to have all knowledge in the world and nobody knows
They can not invite him to the show but it would be crass and probably upset tons of fans.
Much like in the days of the Colosseum, you can't get rid of a fan favorite without upsetting your only source of revenue. If only Jeopardy had listened to the advice I've been mailing them and started releasing lions onto the set, this wouldn't have been a problem.

The speed at which he answers the questions makes me think there is a master question book he studys from for answers, but idk how these game shows work.
Nah, he just looks kinda awkward like he is one of those dudes that are social but he needs some sort of context to open up, they can't be spontanously social. So, er, he goes on Jeopardy. For, er, the social interaction. I thought it was a Rick and Morty reference (Sauce? Smart people?). That is how my works and that is why I will never be on Jeopardy.
That's actually not at all farfetched; back in the 60s/70s there was a massive scandal as it was found out many of the gameshows back then had fixed endings. The contestants that would win were told everything before hand and even trained. There was a massive lawsuit over it and it basically demolished the games of that era.
Video is dead, what was it?
I am also interested..
James Holzhauer competing on The Chase in 2014. He's fucking devastating and dominates most of the game, making few mistakes and taking the majority of the questions and almost all of the Beast-fuckup reversals by himself before the emcee even finishes asking the questions. Basically starting from about 10:13 in this larger clip, only Smurfy's link didn't have an obnoxious watermark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qvrVN9S2-U
This situation reminds me of that one mad tv skit... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18CJ3E74hY4
