Filed under: TV News

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!

Arthur announced on Twitter:

Filed under: TV NewsGIFs

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!

Yeah, the Kiwi Fauna category went before the African-American one!

The internet erupted following the telecast with some suggesting there was some slight racism being served up on the program!

But Texas A&M contestant Tucker Pope says he and his fellow players just wanted to move left to right across the board! He explained:

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!

Britain's Kennel Club breeders' association has issued a chilling warning…

The short-legged, yappy doggies have been favored by the British monarchy since the 1930s and now thats all in jeopardy.

The Kennel Club said that there were only 241 Pembroke Welsh Corgis registered in Britain, so few that the breed is now on the "at watch" list, preparing to move to the "vulnerable native breed" list!

The organization said in a statement:

Matt Lauer just can't seem to catch a break lately!

The anchor was already under heavy scrutiny for the firing of Ann Curry and the Today show's plummeting ratings, and we're guessing his highly controversial interview with filmmaker John Ziergler concerning Jerry Sandusky isn't helping him win any popularity contests!

But it sounds like some good might come out of this ugly mess, as we're hearing NBC is reaching out to Anderson Cooper to replace Matt!

A source close to the situation claims that the deal could be coming fairly soon, saying:
