If Ken Jennings were to play Arthur Chu, who would win? Please comment as to why. I vote Chu because he has the crazy kowledge base with a defensive winning strategy. Still like Ken better, but I love to see a player kick ass. Go Arthur!

I can’t stand Arthur. He makes watching the show much less enjoyable, so I can’t justify rooting for him. I commend him, in a way, because he knows it is a game made to win money! That being said, his attitude is arrogant, I just can’t stand the way he plays, and I can’t WAIT until he loses. I will be elated when he is done. I also hope that future players don’t all jump on the different category, different value every.single.freaking.time strategy because admittedly I am way too simple to keep up with that stuff. I am sad that I feel like I can no longer participate as well as I did before.
ETA – This is a great article and you get a little more knowledge of the guy and his ideas, but…my opinion doesn’t change for personal enjoyment.
” I was just overwhelmed at how amazingly crazy it was that people actually were mad at a guy for winning lots and lots and lots of money by playing within the rules of the game because they were so completely focused on their own pleasure watching it.”
That is the reason TV shows get to stay in existance though…because people enjoy watching them. They enjoy watching them and that boosts ratings, and helps keep the money-winning train on the go.
