Oh how the mighty have fallen!

Arthur Chu seemed unstoppable after an impressive 11-day winning streak and aggressive playing strategy on Jeopardy!. But the 30-year-old trivia whiz was finally defeated last night!

Arthur sparked some controversy last month with his renegade playing style which had him jumping all over the answer board, selecting clues from all different categories in an attempt to throw off his opponents.

And it worked!

He’s walking away with nearly $300K and a spot in Jeopardy! history - he is third in all time wins behind Ken Jennings (who had a 74-game winning streak) and Dave Madden (who won 19 times).

Not too shabby, Arthur!

He seems to be doing OK with the loss too. Not only does he get to go home and count all of his money now, but he gets to stop and make a few more TV appearances on the way!

New Jeopardy! Champ Is Making Everyone Question Everything They Know About The Game With A Smart (Yes, Smart) New Approach

Filed under: TV News

Ultimately, there isn't much you can do to win Jeopardy! other than know a lot of stuff and be quick on the buzzer. But everything you can do, Arthur Chu is doing!

The 4-day champ uses a game play style engineered to give him an edge - one that doesn't sit well with a lot of the show's fans!

Arthur uses a strategy called the "Forrest Bounce" which consists of jumping from category to category so the other players can't get used to the themes. It works especially well on more gimmicky categories like spelling and Before & After.

He also picks higher dollar values first, giving him a better chance of finding the Daily Doubles - and more importantly not leaving any for the other contestants!

This play style has garnered him both praise and vitriol from viewers! And oh yeah, over $100,000 in winnings and counting!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to hear what he has to say about his winning strategy!
