‘Jeopardy’ Savant Austin Rogers Reveals How He Knows Literally Everything Without Owning A TV

by 1 year ago

You’re here, so you’ve obviously been acquainted with Austin Rogers, who has ran through seven days of Jeopardy like shit through a tin horn. I don’t know what that means, but Nick Saban recently said it, so I’ll just nod and agree. The New York bartender has raked in $278,300 in seven days (and counting), but more importantly, has become the world wide webs favorite meme:

Rogers stopped by Good Morning America this morning to describe his meteoric ascent to fame and how the fuck he knows literally everything, despite not even owning a television.

“I found ways to watch hundreds upon hundreds of episodes. I’m not gonna say there’s a system or a code, but if you watch enough, you’ll start to see things repeat,” he admitted. “Like if it ever says sculptor, it’s probably going to be Auguste Rodin. If it ever says American sculptor, it’ll probably be Alexander Calder. If it ever says Romanian poet, it’ll be Eminescu. I have no idea who Eminescu is, but I’ve seen that come up three times in episodes across the decades.”

$278,300. That’s enough money to take the meddling indie band you’ve been in for three decades on tour in your eco-friendly Prius. Respect.
