Question: Who is David Madden?
Look, maybe it's great for Jeopardy that the champions can stay until somebody beats them, but I really hate this new rule. Mostly I hate it because of the current champion, David Madden.
I'm sure he's a very nice boy (not man, because have you seen him? He is, like, seventeen), but he grates on my nerves. I don't even think Alex likes him. I certainly don't see the level of respect from Alex that he had for Ken Jennings. Probably Alex thinks Madden is a tool, too.
Although he's never actually come out and said it, Madden gives out this vibe of smug superiority, and it makes me want to punch him in the face.
Okay, who's this?
"Ooh, I live in Berlin. I'm soooo international."
"Ooh, I want to go in the Peace Corps. I'm soooo considerate and compassionate."
"Ooh, I know EVERY fact about EVERY subject in THE WHOLE WORLD."
"Ooh, I'm a giant ponce and I have a jillion dollars that I won on Jeopardy."
Yeah, so maybe I'm reading him wrong here, but the sooner his jimungous head is off my tv screen the better.
I'd totally date him, of course.
