DANGER! Contestant Sam Buttery makes fans cry during reruns of the show.
In November 2022, Sam defeated Amy Schneider and Andrew He to advance to the Tournament of Champions finals.
At this point, both Amy and Andrew were just one win away from the crown.
At the end of the episode, Sam, considered an underdog, came from behind and crushed the competition.
At Final Jeopardy, Amy had $15,800, Sam $11,200 and Andrew $6,200.
Only Amy and Sam got the correct answer to the last question, but Sam had bet everything.
Unfortunately for Amy, she only wagered a measly $1,800 – giving Sam a very impressive win.
The crowd went wild when he won his first finals contest for $22,400.

In another episode of last year’s finale, fans felt like Sam got mugged in Final Jeopardy.
The category was “The New Testament” and read: “Paul’s letter to you is the New Testament epistle with the most quotations from the Old Testament.”
Accordingly CNN after being reported on the air by The US Sun: “The statement is not disputed because it is about the Bible.”
“It’s not an uncommon topic on the quiz show. But the correct answer is still a matter of debate, even among biblical scholars.”
Amy replied, “Who are the Hebrews?” and was deemed correct by host Ken Jennings, 49.
Then Sam replied, “Who are the Romans?” And this answer was deemed wrong.
Andrew said “Philippiaes”, probably in reference to the Philippianswhich was also wrong – but he had enough on the bench to win.
Per CNN, “All of the responses relate to books in the Bible, which are collections of epistles or epistles purportedly addressed by Jesus’ apostle Paul to various groups in the early days of the Christian church.”
“However, experts differ as to whether Paul actually wrote the letter to the Hebrews – and therefore whether the answer was actually correct.”
“Indeed there are bitter divisions between different Christian schools of thought as to the biblical influence and authorship of Paul.”
CNN added, “Many viewers thought Buttrey’s answer should have been the right one, since scholars generally agree that Paul was the author of the book.” Book of Romans.”
“I’m sorry but Sam should have won today and thanks to this BS Final Jeopardy I now don’t care who wins,” raged one fan in a Reddit thread with 400 angry replies.
Another said: “Well done authors, you just screwed up the biggest table of contents in years.”
A third said: “Sam was right. That should be repealed.”
