Austin Rogers is not your typical Jeopardy! champion.
Sure, he's got brains — answering rapid-fire trivia in the form of a question to the tune of $278,000 in winnings.
But Rogers, a New York City bartender, has also got plenty of flair (not to mention hair!). His goofy contestant intro segments are far from the stiff pose and awkward smile that have become a mainstay of America's Favorite Quiz Show. In one, he pretends to be talking on a phone; in another, he shifts to profile and mimes opening a bottle.
Whenever he gets an answer correct, he breaks into what he describes as "celebratory histrionics."
