It’s only the second time in the show’s history that it’s happened.
A lot of people who go on Jeopardy! use their 30 minutes of fame to go big or go home.
But on the Oct. 17 episode, one guy went small…and stayed?!
But no one got the answer right (it’s Iran), and thanks to Manny’s only slightly less aggressive betting, he won a whole dang dollar.
Hilariously, his first-place payout is less than that of the people he beat — second place brings home $2,000, and third gets $1,000.
The, er, unusual finish is so rare that it’s only happened one other time in Jeopardy! history.
Anyway, viewers had a lot of thoughts on Manny and his near-loss. Some drew some comparisons between the show and Price is Right.
Others saw it as a brief distraction from mourning recent 12-day champ Austin Rogers’ defeat.
And some were just liiiiiving for the high stakes finish.
Manny right now, probably.
