NEW YORK (AP) -- Jeopardy" champ Arthur Chu, who won big money while taking heat for his renegade style, has been defeated.
Chu came in third place with zero dollars on Wednesday's edition of the syndicated game show. He had reigned for 12 days. His total winnings were $297,200.
The 30-year-old Ohioan caused an uproar among "Jeopardy" fans for his aggressive manner of play. He ditched the usual practice of polishing off each category's questions in turn. Instead, he took a hopscotch approach to his category choices, which tended to keep his opponents off-kilter.
Chu's strategy fueled indignation from "Jeopardy" traditionalists who contended that he was unsportsmanlike.
He was unseated by Diana Peloquin of Ann Arbor, Mich., who led for the day with $15,700.
