Arthur Chu's streak of Jeopardy! wins has ended at 11, as he failed in tonight's show to answer Final Jeopardy correctly after a miserable game that left him in third place entering the final round.

When confronted with the British Royalty answer of "He was the last male monarch who had not previously been Prince of Wales," Chu responded with "Who was George II?" The answer is George VI, father of Queen Elizabeth. That's not an especially hard answer, though remembering which George he was might have been the stunner; even if he'd responded correctly, he'd still have lost as the winner did manage to get it right.


Chu finishes with $297,200 in winnings, third all-time. [WLS]
