He deserves it. I wach Jeopardy all the time and players always bet too little on the double.
Same here, I watch every episode basically because I'm a knowledge/trivia wh0ore. The entire teen tournament I was rooting for Leonard to win because he was by far the least lame and humble contestant. Dude plays guitar and wants to be Jimi Hendrix he says. That was one other thing that had me rooting for dude. Look at that fu*king afro, you rarely see dudes with an afro like that these days.
That f*ggot in the middle, I forget his whole name like Burt Barrett or some gay sh*t, dude sounded like he was faking an ESPN broadcasters voice the entire time. I mean, he would say sir and sh*t, which is respectful but at the same time, this isn't 1950 my dude, this is 2013. He just SCREAMS phony. That's why in the OP's clip you can hear the guy recording the video say, "fu*k you" or whatever when the kid pumps his fist after getting it right. The guy is completely unlikeable and screams douche. He even said he wants to one day be the President. During the little chat sessions they have, during the last episode here, he plugged his social networking website which is some lame sh*t like, "Smiles for the Community" or something. Jesus Christ, I mean, yeah that on the surface is a nice productive thing but you know this clown is only doing it because it helps his "resume" so to speak. He must of said "community" 7 times within 5 seconds. Dude is like a Stepford Wive or Manchurian Candidate wired to be a politician. He's got the whole act down. No authentic or human side to this kid at all, it was disturbing. I actively rooted against that kid the whole time.
I'm white too btw, so this isn't racial bias either. It was seriously like watching two racial stereotypes go against the one normal kid. Math genius slash self aggrandizing Indian kid, and smug politically correct White robot kid.
Get the fu*k out of here, give me the black kid with the afro all day. After Leonard won I stood up and clapped for real
Also, it was cool when they showed his mom in the crowd during the credits, she was all proud, crying and everything, real cool.
Also, all three contestants were from the South, suck it Northern states.
