Jeopardy! Champion Arthur Chu's Polarizing Win Streak Comes to an End

Down. Goes. Chu. Arthur Chu, the Jeopardy! champion whose unconventional methods made him both a pseudo-celebrity and game-show villain, had his much-followed win streak snapped at 11 tonight. Failing to provide the correct Final Jeopardy question to the answer "He was the last male monarch who had not previously been Prince of Wales," Chu finished in 3rd place. His $297,200 in winnings are the third largest haul in the show's history.
