    His wife is probably a lot like him -- he mentioned a novel she was working on and it sounded a little oddball -- something about talking dogs in ancient Egypt or something.

    Yeah - but, at least his heart is in the right place if his winnings will help his wife self-publish, which is probably the only way a book about talking dogs in ancient Egypt will be published.

    As a wise person today said,
    Anyone who criticizes Chu because of his gameplay doesn't know much about the game. He's been thrilling to watch. Most of the criticism I've heard has been about his self-promotional strategy, which has been equally relentless and aggressive.
    And this quote comes from a former 3-time champ on the actual show.
    I completely agree with this. He's not cheating and for me that is all that matters. Everyone has their own opinion and every contestant has their own strategy. If his strategy was cheating, the show would not allow it. I've been a faithful viewer for years and years and years and for me Chu has brought some excitement to Jeopardy!

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    That makes sense. Plus, for a lot of contestants, it's hard to "be one's self" with all the lights-camera-action. In some people, nerves make them seem cold.

    There's an Arthur Chu fanclub on Facebook. I'm a part of it.

    I can't handle watching Jeopardy! when Colby or Arthur Chu are on. They both turn my stomach.

    Why?

    And why the strong negative feelings?

    BS. Pure BS. Others may have that in their hearts, but I'm not letting him get away with that. Either he doesn't care or he does. Either he's a victim or he's not. Pick one, Arthur. And enjoy all that cash you're winning while you're being victimized.

    He' not annoying because he's Asian. He's annoying because he's annoying!

    I am like Arthur. I cry wolf. I hope you're right about the BS part though.
