Chu shook up the trivia competition due to his renegade style of playing the game: skipping around the board in the hopes of finding the Daily Double rather than just going through categories one at a time like most contestants. Additionally, he strategized his Final Jeopardy wagers to tie, rather than to win.

Check out the clip below to see the question that led to his undoing: He was the last male monarch who had not previously been Prince of Wales. Do you know?

Chu, who was in third place, guessed George II and risked all his money. (It was George VI.) In total, Chu won slightly less than $300,000 during his weeks-long streak.
