Jeopardy! Masters’ Andrew He reveals how he plans to ‘avenge’ placing 4th in special
JEOPARDY! contestant Andrew He has been eliminated during the semifinals, but Andrew isn’t done with the show.
Andrew was eliminated during Wednesday’s Jeopardy! semifinals after a rarely-seen tiebreaker.
Ken Jennings, 48, announced Andrew and his opponent, Mattea Roach, ended the episode with the same amount of points, resulting in a tie.
In this situation, the winner is the contestant who answered the most questions correctly.
In this case, that contestant was Mattea and they advanced.
After the episode was filmed, Andrew discovered that he welcomed a newborn son during filming.
He proceeded to tweet: “My son will avenge me,” after giving a spoiler alert warning.
The Jeopardy! alum vowed to send his son on the show to win the championship when he’s old enough.
NOT A SORE LOSER
Andrew’s hilarious response garnered a great reaction from the television show’s fans on Twitter.
One said, “Lolol I loud laughed at this, and hope I am old enough to see the Jeopardy babies-grown-up tournament.”

A third joked, “This is the beginning of the 100-Year Jeopardy War!”
“What year would that be? I hope I’m still around,” added a fourth.
THE WINNER SPEAKS
Jeopardy! Masters star James Holzhauer has shared his true feelings for his rival after Andrew’s shocking defeat.
Despite his villain status on the show, James had some kind words for his competitor.
He tweeted: “Facing a murderer’s row of opponents, Andrew was the only player not to finish last in any first-round match.”
“He played with determination and guts, but most amazingly he wore a baseball cap when we went out to eat and somehow his hair looked like this mere hours later,” he added, alongside a snap of Andrew with perfectly groomed hair.
The TV star added: “I’ll always remember the big smile on Andrew’s face whenever anyone asked about his newborn son, who arrived in the middle of our taping schedule.
“It’s clear he’ll be even more impressive at parenting than he is at Jeopardy, which is saying a lot.”
Fans were shocked at James’ sweet words, with one commenting: “James, you’re tarnishing your villain vibes here…”
Another added: “The sportsmanship between all of the competitors makes me smile. Excellent example.
“You’re all fighting to win, and it’s all smiles and respect regardless of the outcome.”
