Thursday marked the third day that competitor Brayden Smith dominated Danger!. The Las Vegas, Nevada-based politician has set up a clinic, and fans love it, but not just for entertainment. Knowing that there are only a few episodes left featuring host Alex Trebek who died earlier this year, fans are happy that Smith was one of his last competitors.
”What a week it turns out to be on“ Jeopardy! Said Trebek at the top of the show. “So I’m not going to say anything that might offend him.”
Trebek was amazed by Smith’s game, especially his ability against the Daily Doubles.
“I don’t think you missed any of the daily doubles you discovered,” Trebek said. “And you discovered them all in the games you competed in.”
Fans went on social media to share their collective joy.
I would like to believe that Brayden was a final gift for Alex Trebek. He loved a great champion. #Danger

I’m really glad that Alex Trebek received a contestant like Brayden on some of his latest shows. Smart as a whip. He plays the picture like no other (he finds all those daily doubles is not bad luck). Face escape heckuva. And pretty weak. Is awesome. #danger

I’m glad Alex’s having a whistling baby. Love this. Now, if Brayden bet big, Alex would be over the moon. #danger

By the third day, Smith had already amassed $ 66,000. He had $ 36,400 in Final Jeopardy !, and, despite an incorrect answer, left with a total of $ 93,800 for three days.
While the money is great for Smith, fans would probably say they were the biggest winners, because they have to see their beloved host celebrating one last great champion.
