The clue that derailed him: "He was the last male monarch who had not previously been Prince of Wales." Chu's incorrect answer: "Who was George II?" Who ended his reign?

Arthur Chu wasn't "arrogant" in ANY way! If anything, he was shy, quick, and somewhat brilliant. I tuned in to watch him play every day and enjoyed his strategy. We'll all see him play again in the coming weeks.

And just like with Jennings, the contestant that dethroned the champion lost the next round. Found Chu's method of playing different, but not objectionable. Always grand to watch a brilliant competitor.

Utilized some controversial game-playing tactics? Arthur Chu goes down after 11 wins? Who did he go down on? Trebek?
