What happens when you don’t know the answer to the final question on Jeopardy? Instead of panicking and sweating over not knowing the correct answer as the Jeopardy theme song counts down, one contestant decided to go out with a bang.
On Thursday’s episode of Jeopardy, contestant Ari Voukydis was stumped by the final Jeopardy clue, but his hilarious response has made him a viral sensation.
The question posed was “In 1891, this European said, ‘Perhaps my factories will put an end to war sooner than your congresses.'” The correct answer to the clue was Alfred Noble, by the way.
But what did he write as his answer? Take a look at a screen shot below.
