He can’t win ‘em all, apparently. Arthur Chu’s 11-game Jeopardy! winning streak ended Wednesday when he wagered everything on an incorrect Final Jeopardy! answer.
But losing isn’t so bad — Chu is still walking away with his earnings from more successful games, which come to a total of $297,200. Pocket money, you know.
Chu won the third highest of any Jeopardy! contestant, following number one winner Ken Jennings and David Madden at number two. Chu’s success came partly from his strategy of jumping around the game board and finding Daily Doubles before his fellow contestants, which has earned him a villainous reputation — one that he’s embraced.
