Contestant gives greatest final 'Jeopardy' answer ever

Greatest Final Jeopardy Answer Ever

One Jeopardy contestant may not have won the day, but he seems to have won the title of "greatest wrong answer ever."

The final clue of Thursday's episode was apparently a hard one. It read, "In 1891 this European said, 'Perhaps my factories will put an end to war sooner than your congresses.'"

Ari Voukydis, a comedy writer from Los Angeles, had no clue so instead wrote, "Who is this handsome gentlemen?" with an arrow pointing towards himself. He later told TODAY, "When I realized that I didn't have an opportunity to win after Final Jeopardy, then I went after sort of a secondary target, which was to come up with a good Final Jeopardy answer so I could kind of lose on my own terms."

Because of the "handsome gentlemen," Thursday's Jeopardy episode has been viewed more than 80,000 times on YouTube. To put that into perspective, Wednesday's episode barely broke 800.

I have been watching Jeopardy off and on for decades -- starting with Art Fleming and his announcer, Don Pardo. The show never gets old, it is, imo, the best quiz/game show on television and it never, ever insults our intelligence. I saw the show with Ari's final answer -- pretty good.

What you got somebody turning off the tube at times. Slap that old hubby upside the head, send him to get you another brewskie and another 10 cartoons of Bon Bons. You have let him bask in your Jabba the Hut glory for way too long!

Typical of 2014 America: they don't provide the answer. Education is taking a back seat to "entertainment".

Including the answer to the question in the article would have been fabulous. Luckily, a lot of commenters knew the answer ;)

He's making a play for Father Alex and Alex didn't catch it. Maybe later at the motel he figured it out? The answer is Viagra, by the 55 gallon drum Alex!

According to Fikkle Fame, the correct answer is "who is Alfred Nobel?"

Seems AOL has a new tactic to force those videos on us. You can't scroll down to the text until that video loads. So back to square one. When I see it's a video, I'll skip it.

This wasn't really funny. Cliff Clavin still has the best Final Jeopardy answer ever.

I don't know about the answer but my question would be, Hey where's Katy Perry, they said she was going to be here?

No not really. Whoever wrote this is obviously not a Jeopardy nerd.

Good answer, if you cant win you might as well get remembered for something. But now I think he may have started something.
