Jeopardy Contestant - a bad winner?
« on: April 06, 2019, 09:17:33 PM »

Can't say I've seen this before - a Jeopardy winner with a website that actively mocks the losing competitors?  Built in such a way that implies that it's the contestant himself that built the site, but with just enough legalese to imply that maybe he didn't.

I don't know if that makes him a bad winner per se--anyone could go to Jeopardy Archive or JBoard.tv to see the results.

Word on the street is the website published the results of the first two matches prior to the first match airing in the US.  Also I think referring to the players who lost against him as 'the humbled' is bad form at best, tasteless at worst.

I don't think calling him a "bad winner" goes near far enough...

Let me take a shot...

Obnoxious self-important self-absorbed douchenozzle...a complete and total dickhead...

That's better...

I don't understand why the page was created, but it specifically says that it wasn't created by James:

"King James Holzhauer is an unofficial fan site dedicated to James Holzhauer. Our purpose is to promote interest in James Holzhauer and his Jeopardy! appearance(s). We are in no way officially affiliated with James Holzhauer, his friends, or his family. This is a site made by a fan for the fans."

I'm sorry, a random fan doesn't decide to create a website for a contestant he likes after seeing him play for two days. Plus, apparently he posted some spoiler-type info even before it aired?  Whoever this is, whether it's Holzhauer himself or not, it's somebody connected to him.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

Probably the biggest problem in our country today is the troubling level of gullibility...

Let me guess...you believe windmill noise causes cancer, right?

Well, if it is him, wouldn't that put him in jeopardy of forfeiting his winnings for revealing show results?

Yeah, it would...ergo the ridiculous disclaimer...but anyone with half a brain can see right through it...

This would hardly be the first time someone did something incredibly stupid against their own self-interest...

For some, ego is simply more important than money...

The show is running a social media promo saying an all-time Jeopardy record will be broken on tonight's episode.

He might be a bad winner but he can afford it now.
