Controversial “Jeopardy!” champ Arthur Chu returned to the game show last night, dominating the trivia board once again to take home his fifth straight win.
In the pre-taped episode, Chu used his signature style to take home the top prize. On Monday night’s episode, the strategic player took home more than $20,000, bringing his total winnings up to a staggering $123,600.
Chu, who has been criticized for using game theory to win “Jeopardy!,” appeared without his glasses, and he took to Twitter to explain the new look.
“Before anyone asks, I did not get an image consultant who told me to ditch the glasses -- I literally broke them in the airport,” he tweeted. “And yes I was incredibly worried going into this game that the contacts would mess me up.”
But even without his specs, Chu did just fine for himself. He live-tweeted as his episode aired, answering viewer questions along the way.
