Last week, I called James Holzhauer the smartest man in the world after he demolished the single game record on Jeopardy! with $110,914. It turns out that Jeopardy! is not the only game show that James dominated. Back in 2014, James was on a show called The Chase. If you thought this man was just a fluke, think again.

Me when James answers a question about Egyptian politics.
I can’t get enough of this man. Everything he does is electric. What baffles my mind is that this guy is not a villain. He’s cocky, says things like the “window maximum” instead of the Daily Double, and blows on his fingers after a hard day’s work and yet I LOVE him. I should hate this guy, but I can’t get enough of him. Inject James answering questions about 20th century literature into my veins.
It was also great to see Brooke Burns again on a game show. Dog Eat Dog was such a classic mid 2000s game show and yet I still have no idea the show’s presence. Go to training camp, answer questions, and then vote for people to do physical tasks? If I wanted that premise, I would just watch CT on The Challenge.
