A danger! The candidate from the Alex Trebek era has attracted new attention with his intense stage history.
A clip of two-time world champion Ronald Lange from 2001 resurfaced on social media this week, with netizens buying what he was selling.
Ronald, a $22,000 winner and sales executive from Brooklyn, New York, appeared on Jeopardy! back in season 18.
The presenter at the time, Alex, asked him about a hobby that he apparently takes even more seriously than trifles.
The host asked, “I understand that it is you and your wife.” professional Shushers in cinemas.”
Roland flashed a smile and with a straight face told Alex he was right, declaring his MO in an insanely sincere gesture.
“We go out to see things and enjoy them”
He shared, “We are, we have a young son and when we go out we go out to actually see things and enjoy them.”
The contestant continued, “And most people forget that they’re actually in public and think they’re watching TV at home.”
“And my wife and I will inevitably turn and keep quiet.”

“And it happens almost every time we go out, I’m afraid.”
“THE HERO WE NEED”
A fan recognized the contestant’s dedication to the movie magic and shared the clip on X, formerly known as Twitter.
They wrote, “Check out this Kick**s Jeopardy! contestant from the season 18 premiere.”
Someone replied: “Legend” and someone else: “These people don’t exist anymore.”
A third person shared a Dark Knight GIF that read, “Not the hero we deserve but the hero we needed.”
CLASSIC DANGER! INTERVIEWS
While Alex has a few years advantage over his host successors, his stone-cold response to vile candidate interviews is hard to beat.
A meme-worthy incident happened with a contestant named Mary Beth.
She revealed that she “prayed for snow on her wedding day” but didn’t get the snow but did get “eight inches on my honeymoon.”
The audience erupted in laughter and Alex stared in shock [as seen in a clip shared on social media last week].
And of course there was time Alex ruined a contestant because he liked “loser” music.
In 2016, Susan Cole shared her love of “nerdcore hip-hop” — and Alex didn’t hold back.
Alex said the genre “didn’t sound fun,” but she said, “It’s a lot of fun.”
“It’s people who call themselves nerds, who rap about video games and sci-fi, and who have a hard time dating romantic partners,” Susan confessed.
“loser“In other words,” Alex famously shot back.
In 2022, Ken Jennings, 49, and Mayim Bialik, 47, officially became the co-hosts of Jeopardy! following the tragic death of Alex in 2020.
Alex hosted Jeopardy! from his resuscitation in 1984 until shortly before his death at the age of 80 from pancreatic cancer.
