The latest “Jeopardy” champion has also won the title of “most annoying” contestant ever according to some viewers.
Matt from Connecticut is on a huge winning streak but fans of the show are annoyed with how the Jeopardy contestant rings in his answers.
Instead of answering in traditional form of questions “What is?” or “Who is?” he responds “What’s”, even if it’s in response to a person. . . which he SHOULD then be answering “Who”.
For instance, when the answer to a clue was “Jim Parsons“, he said, “What’s Parsons?”
Viewers have taken to Twitter to vent their frustrations.
Can someone PLEASE tell Matt it’s not “what” when referring to a person? #Jeopardy— April (@NerdmomApril) July 29, 2021
Is Matt the most annoying contestant ever? Is it so hard to say “who is”? or “make it a true daily double”? #Jeopardy— Voter McVoterface (@VMcVoterface) July 29, 2021

Q: WHAT’S Matt?
Others are getting a kick out of the hate. No word on whether Matt has seen these tweets.
Reading the #jeopardy trend is making me laugh. I’m calling him What’s Matt from now on…— Cassie (@thecassinator7) July 29, 2021
Personally, I’m an avid Jeopardy fan and it’s driving me CRAZY!
I’m not a sports fan so Jeopardy is like my favorite sport and I route for contestants like fans route for certain football players. Matt is clearly an incredible player and knows the game. He reminds me a bit of Jeopardy James so he may be around for a while to both annoy and impress us!
