    He's already won like 2 million dollars on Jeopardy! How much money does he need?

    He just wants the fame. I haven't seen the episode, so I don't know how good he did.

    I was so mad at him for not going for the million dollar question! Such an easy question. Anyone who's taken any sort of American History course would know it. He should've realized it wouldn't be anything THAT mind-boggling and gone for it.

    And I think he came on the show more so he could get the record as the all-time winningest game show contestant. And hey, these days, who out there couldn't use a little extra cash? You can't blame him.

    I just hope that Fox has the whole episode up on its site to view. My local station joined the show in progress 20 minutes late after the baseball playoff game ran long, so I only got to see the second half.

    Maybe not but would a fifth grader have known the answer to that? I'm a freshman in high school and I don't think I knew.

    Yeah but in this case, he doesn't really need the money. It's just for the fame.
