Other than the fact that he has three names (Respect, ATR!)
Anyway, this guy is on a Jeopardy winning streak. Friday, he scored his 9th consecutive win - ending a Friday with a total of $332,400. (Tune in tonight to see if he can keep the streak going.)
Not record-breaking numbers yet, but I enjoy this man IMMENSELY. Why? Well, for one, Jeopardy players are notoriously BORING. Ken Jennings? Please.
So, without further adieu, the five reasons I live AUSTIN TYLER ROGERS:
1.) He's a bartender at Gaf West in Manhahattan. Enough said.
2.) His style. Not a lot of people can pull off a mop-top, unkempt beard and corduroy sports jackets with sartorial aplomb.
3.) He's sticking it to Alex Trebek, who, let's be honest, takes himself way to seriously (especially for a Canadian...who sleeps naked.)
4.) He bets like a drunk 20-something on a bender at Foxwoods. $34,000 on a Final Jeopardy question? That's just NUTS.
5.) His hot-dogging game is on POINT. At first, he wasn't wildly gesticulating when he was winning. But as the days progressed, ATR got decidedly bolder. Now he's swishing and snapping and dropping the buzzer like a BOSS.
Bravo, ATR. May you Daily Double your way to stardom.
