Arthur Chu, controversial 'Jeopardy' contestant, finally loses

UPI News Service, 03/12/2014 

Arthur Chu, whose unorthodox style-of-play rattled the "Jeopardy!" establishment, lost after a 12-day run on the series.

After 11 straight wins, he took home $298,200 in total prize money, which makes him the third most-winningest "Jeopardy!" contestant in the show's history.

"It's been an amazing run," Chu told the Plain-Dealer after his third-place finish on Wednesday.

"This last couple of months has been one of the coolest experiences of my life."

Chu wagered all his money ($6,400) during Wednesday's Final Jeopardy round, and lost to Diana Peloquin of Ann Arbor, Mich.

"Thanks for all the love guys. Hard to be hurt by a loss I've known was coming since Nov but seeing others react makes it real again," he tweeted Wednesday.

"Just have to console myself with being a guest on #GoodMorningAmerica and #LiveWithKellyAndMichael and almost $300,000."

Chu, a self-described "mad genius," gained notoriety for his controversial game strategy.

Unlike most contestants, who stick with clues in one particular category before moving on to another, Chu liked to pick random clues from all over the board.
