Jeopardy Tom (and his 'What' answer) made everyone swoon on Twitter

Posted on

Meet Tom Flynn. Tom’s a bartender-slash-film production freelancer who ended up on Jeopardy! Monday night but clearly wasn’t all that into it. He wrote “What” to the Final Jeopardy clue. He kept glancing at himself on screen, leaning back like he was posing in front of a three-way mirror. He moved his buzzer around as if it were trying to escape, because hey, he’s Tom and he couldn’t care less if he didn’t buzz first.

Tom lost at the end of the night. What, indeed.
