Jeopardy! fans ‘alarmed’ by ‘weird’ detail before champ Ryan Long’s HUGE bet & comeback for 11th win

Jeopardy! fans ‘alarmed’ by ‘weird’ detail before champ Ryan Long’s HUGE bet & comeback for 11th win

JEOPARDY! fans were stunned as Uber driver Ryan Long drove to his 11th straight win.

But an “alarming” and “weird” detail scored some attention before his HUGE comeback.

Mayim, 46, is hosting Jeopardy! for a third week in a row, returning after alum Ken Jennings’ prior three weeks at the helm and announcement he’d be out for “months.”

“I’m handing the keys back to the talented actor-producer-writer-director (!) Mayim Bialik for a few months,” the fan-favorite surprisingly tweeted, adding, “We are lucky to have her! I’ll be back before the end of the season.”

The permanent hosting slot is still on the board and will be decided by the end of Season 38 in July 2022.

But tonight Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native Ryan nabbed his eleventh straight win with $209K total earnings with a huge bet – and there was something quite large on-screen first.

BIG WAGER & BIGGER SIGNATURE

Ryan went into Final Jeopardy in second place to right podium Aaron Gulyas, as Mayim noted “It’s anybody’s game.”

One fan tweeted, “What a battle between Ryan and Aaron” as it appeared it could be game over for the rising star.

Aaron had $14K to the champ’s $13K when the show returned from commercial, Mayim stating: “My heart is beating fast.”

However, Ryan responded to Final Jeopardy, on “Sports and Entertainment” with “Peyton Manning” correctly – and his wager was surely his touchdown dance.


He wagered a massive $12,999, all but $1.

With $25,999K total the driver cruised ahead in an amazing finish, as fans went wild – since the bet was what clinched it.

Aaron, unfortunately, didn’t know it and wrote “Nature Boy Rick Flair,” but wagered $0.

If Ryan hadn’t wagered so big he wouldn’t have won.

“Nail biter! #Jeopardy” one fan tweeted on the sight to see.

“#Ryan went for broke #Jeopardy,” wrote another

“Wowwww!” wrote a third.

“I cheered from the sofa when Ryan Long won again!” wrote a fourth.
