The man who angered some "Jeopardy!" fans has finally claimed his last Daily Double. 

"Renegade 'Jeopardy!' champ Arthur Chu, whose unusual style of jumping around the board, has been defeated finally. Chu won almost $300,000 during his 12-day run."

Chu has been candid about his loss, replying to people on Twitter, and effectively blowing up his page.

Chu even stopped by "Good Morning America" after his loss. He told the hosts he had support from his family while playing. 

"My mom was really happy, she was there watching all my games ... I talked to my wife, we do want to go to China, she's never been."

Ken Jennings, the "Jeopardy!" champ who won 74 games, even video chatted the show to tease Chu he could put away 11 games before lunch.

As for what derailed the now famous, or should we say infamous, 'Jeopardy!' titan? 

The clue was: "He was the last male monarch who had not previously been Prince of Wales?"

ALEX TREBEK: "Okay, Arthur, we come to you first. You were in third place and you wrote down 'Who was George II? Nope. Wrong guy. It's going to cost you how much? $6,400, dropping you to zero.' 

As for who ended his reign? Her name is Anna Peloquin, a University of Michigan law student

​After the loss, Chu posted a video to YouTube, fittingly mouthing Weird Al Yankovic's "I Lost on Jeopardy."

Well, Chu, here's to finding something else to be ridiculously good at ... that also makes you money. Oh, and no worries, we will still see him in the Tournament of Champions.
