Jeopardy Mastermind Loses


"'Jeopardy!" mastermind Matt Jackson's winning streak has finally come to an end -- and many are praising the way he handled the loss.

"There are so many things I could do, and it was a good reminder that life goes on ..." Jackson said after the loss.

From day one, his quirky ways made him a fan favorite.

On October 14, Jackson became the 4th winningest Jeopardy champion ever.

After a 13-day win, the 23-year-old said he went above and beyond his goal of making the tournament of champions, making $411,612 in the process.

It's safe to say Jackson handled the loss better than his growing fan base (they lost it on Twitter), and even former champions reached out to give the man credit on his performance.

Congrats, Matt Jackson!
