Ari Voukydis: 'Jeopardy' Contestant May Have Given Best Answer Ever

By    |   Friday, 27 Jun 2014 02:06 PM

Ari Voukydis' answer to the final "Jeopardy" question on Thursday night's episode may go down as the best answer ever given on the legendary quiz show.

Voukydis, a comedian, improv teacher, and BuzzFeed writer from Los Angeles, went into the final round in second place with $8,800. The last category? Science & Industry.

The clue was: "In 1891 this European said, 'Perhaps my factories will put an end to war sooner than your congresses.'"

After the allotted deliberation time, Voukydis revealed his answer, naturally in the form of a question: "Who is this handsome gentleman?" with an arrow pointing to his face.









For the record, the correct answer was, "Who is Alfred Nobel?"

Earlier this month, Trebek secured a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for most episodes of a game show hosted by the same presenter with a whopping 6,829 under his belt.

The 73-year-old began hosting the quiz show in 1984 and will continue to do so at least until his current contract ends in 2016.

"It's a fun show to do, and it's a quality program that I never have to apologize for when I meet people. So there are no downsides," he said in a video commemorating the Guinness honor. "I want to continue for a few more years. The good news is as long as I keep hosting the program, I stay ahead of whoever's in second place, and that makes me feel good."

Voukydis' hilarious moment comes at the 16:50 mark in the clip below:
