    Okay, so whatever happens, I think this guy is the best Jeopardy player ever. In a measly 8 days, he is ranked #1, #2, and I believe #3 in One Day earnings, and has absolutely decimated the competition. He has two games where he's earned over $100,000, and there doesn't seem to be any end in sight. He is a Professional Sports Gambler and has used that, combined with his quick thumb and vast trivia knowledge to completely own the game of Jeopardy.

    Ken Jennings had a 74-episode run and made around $2.5mm. This new guy may not beat the 74 straight games, but I think he may earn more than Ken in the end.

    I feel so sorry for the folks who have to face him. Imagine it's your dream to be on Jeopardy, and you go through all the try outs, and finally get that call and it's your chance to shine...and then you run into this fuckin' guy and get to ring in on maybe three or four clues that he was too far ahead to even be bothered with. I swear, you see this guy let up when he's tens of thousands of dollars ahead, just for charity purposes to let the others get some TV time. He's insane. In all the years I've been watching Jeopardy, I've never seen another person who has taken the souls of the other contestants so early. By the first commercial break, it's all over. He just obliterates them.

    Dude, his categories were 2Pac Lyrics, Fred Williamson movies, Dave Chappelle skits and members of the Wu Tang Clan.

    I've been watching Jeopardy since I was teenager and I've NEVER seen anyone like this guy... He's Mike Tyson-esque in his vivisection of his opponents!

    I’ve been watching too. The guy is incredible. Crazy too when he was like today “oh no I didn’t like school at all...” and referenced how his vast knowledge comes from self study of which a lot of it appears to be picking things he does not know a lot about and then reading widely within those fields.

    In some cases that means forcing himself to gain a lot of knowledge in subjects he isn’t particularly interested in.

    Guy is easily already one of the GOAT players. That champ team tournament just went down a few weeks back, and it almost feels like it was premature cause this guy wasn’t on any of the teams lol.

    Jennings isn't even the best. There's that "Brad" dude who is undefeated and beat Jennings in the Tournament Of Champions. His team even won the All-Star game.

    I don't know why he had to quit though. I guess back in the day, they just cut him off after a certain amount.

    I like how he still makes huge wagers in Final Jeopardy even though he's already banked $60k+

    If that's the case, Trebek will get him with the tried and true Cheater's Justice...

    "Uhh...my left."
