This guy was pointed out to me by a fellow worker a few days ago…
He has a won over a million dollars on the show and to watch him is amazing….
A married gambler….
The guy is a standing warp factor 9 computer….
Who is Ben Sasse?
This time, it was the answer — and nobody knew it.
Not Robin Falco, a nonprofit administrator from King of Prussia, Pa. Not Tyler Lee, an international banking project manager from Hollis, N.Y. And, notably, not James Holzhauer, a professional sports gambler from Las Vegas.
None of them could tell the good-natured Canadian man the name of the senator from Nebraska and author of “Them: Why We Hate Each Other — and How to Heal.” Not even if the inquisitor had paid them.
Indeed, he would have.
For this was “Jeopardy!” and there was $2,000 worth of loot on the line. Yet several seconds passed in silent suspense, until, finally, host Alex Trebek informed them, with but a faint trace of concern, that the correct answer was Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.).
Had it been any other crop of contestants, it may have ended there, just another missed piece of trivia in the show’s decades-long history. But this group included Holzhauer, the man who has been called “unstoppable,” “dynamic, “cold-blooded,” “absolutely insane” and “a cyborg” for his record-setting “Jeopardy!” dominance.
