A few comments[edit]

Just a few comments - while I know people are making a big deal about the system he used to study for Jeopardy, I think it's worth keeping in mind (and noting in the article text) that Roger was one of the best quiz bowl players in the country long before he was on Jeopardy. His Virginia Tech team (with Dennis Loo, Eliot Brenner, and Jason Thweatt) was one of the dominant quiz bowl teams in the country in the late 90s.

I'm still waiting on a picture of him. I know he's paying attention to this article. (In fact, he has been known to edit Wikipedia on occasion) Oh, and he appeared on NPR yesterday. Raul654 (talk) 14:19, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

The quiz bowl part of the story may be true, but it's still completely unsourced (other than via your personal knowledge)! --Orlady (talk) 16:22, 21 November 2011 (UTC) OK, I added a source, but it only says he participated. --Orlady (talk) 16:26, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

$18000 still highest successful Daily Double?[edit]

The article states, "His $18,000 win is the largest single Daily Double prize in the show's history," but cites a 2011 Esquire article as the source. Anyone know if that's still true? At the very least, it has since been tied by Leonard Cooper in the Teen Tournament final game 2 of February 12, 2013, who also made and correctly answered an $18000 Daily Double wager. [1] [2] I don't know an easy way to search j-archive to see if there have since been any larger successful Daily Double wagers, or if there's any other good source for that information.

Looks like this was definitely beaten on March 15th, 2016's episode, according to Jeopardy's Facebook page [3], but I don't know how to properly cite and update the article. Blerb795 (talk) 05:32, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
