Criticized ‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant Responds [VIDEO]


The reigning champion of 'Jeopardy!' is responding to all the critics of his style of play.

FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony reports:

Audio clip:

Arthur Chu has annoyed viewers with his rapid buzzing and fast play:

(Chu) "Canadian Bodies, 16."

And for jumping around category to category, searching for daily doubles:

(Chu) "Uh, Sigh Of Relief, 2,000."

Going after the highest value questions first. And it all amuses Chu because it's hardly a new 'Jeopardy!' strategy:

(Chu) "The first person to play like I play was Chuck Forest who was the Champion back in 1985 when I was one year old."

But in this social media age:

(Chu) "I was live-tweeting my episodes as they aired."

Even responding to his critics directly:

(Chu) "I don't get paid for making people on Twitter happy. I get paid for winning the game."

Chu's won nearly $103,000 over four days and returns to the show February 24th.
