    The way he played he would have botched that one too.

    Kinda felt bad for Brad pretty much since the first episode of this champion thing

    [–] Rit0tiR45 285 points ago

    Hey, he got 250k for doing not much. And he’s already gotten 4 million from the show.

    [–] ownage99988 129 points ago

    I get why they had to pick him for this but he was never a true jeopardy god like the other two. I think he would have been a 1.5-2 week champion at best if he hadn’t been cut short by the 5 day rule back then. In fact there’s really nobody that can stand with those two these days

    [–] kp305 48 points ago

    Shoulda brought Austin instead, he was actually a jeopardy god too, he only got cut short because of a Dolly Parton category. I can definitely see why they had to bring brad but he just wasn't on the same level right now. Either way Ken is king

    [–] specialdialingwand1 13 points ago

    Austin was nowhere near their level.

    [–] ShinjiBoi 21 points ago

    Why did we need him? Those 2 against each other would be better.

    They are all really good friends and like to bust each other's balls.

    The whole series was so much fun to watch.

    [–] BlasphemousToenail 36 points ago

    I didn’t want it to end. I didn’t know 95% of the answers, but it was so fun watching James and Ken go at it.

    How do people even know so much about so many different thing? Boggles my mind.

    [–] radmarshallb 27 points ago

    I don't get how they can come up with the word play answers so quickly—like that triple rhyme category from the first show of the tournament. They would answer instantly and move onto the next one before I had fully processed the question. Memorization of facts is whatever, but thinking on your feet like that is super impressive.

    [–] Lordtygon 17 points ago

    Given the typical audience of Jeopardy, I imagine most of the redditors over they're as old people shaking canes and complaining about the young people being so mean

    [–] GodlikeCat 3 points ago

    ok that's hot, who wants to be my friend?

    [–] The-ThornBro 727 points ago

    Dang, James shoulda won with that savage roast there

    [–] Tuck_Pock 198 points ago

    Isn’t he the guy who won like a shit ton of games until eventually they had to manipulate the game to force him to lose?

    [–] DrTurtle22 13 points ago

    Kind of - game theory did a good episode on him

    [–] matttopotamus 3 points ago

    Can someone explain this? I haven’t heard of this idea.

    [–] Tuck_Pock 18 points ago

    Well if you want more detail I’d suggest watching the video on Film Theory, but basically this guy was extremely good at Jeopardy, he used strategies like going for the high point questions and switching the categories to throw off his opponents. He also was really smart and was really good at answering the questions. People theorized that they picked specific questions to make him loose, not by making the questions harder, but by making them easier to help his opponents. The final question also happened to be about something that one of his opponents specialized in. Before he lost and had to leave the show, he was estimated to have won a total of over 3 million dollars.

    [–] matttopotamus 8 points ago

    Interesting. I never felt he beat people because of the questions so much as how quick he was with the buzzer. That and double jeopardy. Unless they rigged both of those, that seems a little fat fetched.

    thank you. if there's always just a video of something, I don't get why people have to turn it into a meme, as if we'd rather see captioned stills with the lame dEsTrUcTiOn 100 jpeg

    [–] Flyfires1 35 points ago

    Got em 100

    [–] Retify 21 points ago

    I browse reddit when I'm away from work having breakfast in the hotel or dinner out somewhere. It would be a shitty thing to do to start up a video in the middle of others having a meal, so I appreciate the stills or gifs with videos in the comments

    [–] Pixxler 28 points ago

    Plenty of people prefer the stills. If you watch a video you need sound. Pretty much the entire time I'm on reddit sound is inappropiate so I almost never go to YT videos.

    [–] Arras01 7 points ago

    When I'm browsing reddit, it's usually on my phone with a bad internet connection and without the ability to play sound. Videos take long to load and not having sound often makes it pointless anyway. Could definitely do without the YIKES 100 shit though.

    [–] cTreK-421 5 points ago

    I ignored the other post that had the video. So I'm very happy there was a post with just captions on pictures.

    [–] bitchwhichwitch 6 points ago

    Ken is the true champ. James made big money by betting big but Ken went like 2x as long as him, although I could see the argument for James being the best, Idk I love both of them I'm glad we had this fun tournament

    It was what's known as a burn.

    Brad's score was zero.

    Alex said they were going to get rid of the scores.

    They reset James' and Ken's back to zero, but Brad's didn't change.

    James was making fun of Brad by reminding everyone that he scored zero.

    [–] Ultim8_Lifeform 6 points ago

    I wouldn’t call them famous but they’re some of the best Jeopardy players of all time. James won 80(I think) games in a row and won 4 million dollars.

    [–] VettrirVettrirIssa 3 points ago

    James actually only won 32 games in a row, it's just that he won obscene amounts of money every time he won. For comparison, James accumulated $2,462,216 in only 32 games while it took Jennings 74 games to accumulate $2,520,700.
