Austin Rogers admits he’s been a “disruptive” Jeopardy! player, but he hates using that word

  • “It’s not a hearing at the Hague,” says Rogers in explaining his unusual behavior. “It’s not a session of the NATO joint chiefs. It’s a game show meant to entertain. So why not have fun on it? I set myself a goal to win my first game. When I won it so convincingly, my motivation was not to keep accruing crazy money. My motivation was to enjoy myself in the moment now that I already set my own goal. So every subsequent game was, ‘Let’s have fun with this, I don’t care if I lose now!’ From day two onward, I never cared if I lost.”
