Earlier this month, the internet was infatuated with Austin Rogers, the Jeopardy! champion who made big wagers. Now a new contestant is gaining fans. Manny Abell won Jeopardy! last night with $1. Yep, just $1. According to the show, no one has won with $1 since 1993.

Screenshots of Abell winning $1 and throwing his hands up in the air quickly went viral.

And become parodied.

It’s clear that people love Manny.



He sure makes competing on Jeopardy! look easy.
