It’s College Championship Week on Jeopardy!

And it also happens to be Black History month!

So the producers of the long-running game show thought they would include a category of African-American History during February 17th’s broadcast.

The only problem was, the three caucasian contestants on the show that day apparently didn’t want anything to do with those clues!

As you can see in the pic above, the category went UNTOUCHED throughout the entire Double Jeopardy round until all of the other answers had been questioned!

Apparently these college students knew more about animals in New Zealand than they did about black people in America, since they opted to tackle that topic first!

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!
