Jeopardy Villain

I'm NOT a Bad Guy

Just Greedy As Hell

EXCLUSIVE

031314_arthur_chu_launch11-game "Jeopardy" champ Arthur Chu -- widely criticized for his cocky attitude and unorthodox playing style -- insists he's not such a bad guy in real life ... minus his unquenchable thirst for money.

Chu was out in NYC early Thursday -- a day after his "Jeopardy" reign came to an end -- and he told us, fans of the game show got the wrong impression of him ... just because he was an ambitious (and extremely successful) player.

Chu -- who won nearly $300,000 on the show -- said, "I don't think I'm a bad guy for trying to win money on Jeopardy. I might be a bad guy for other reasons, but that's for other people to decide."

As for what he plans to do with his massive check -- watch the video.

I think people should leave him alone. It's not like he was cheating.

Kind of weird that people get pissed off when someone plays the game completely withing the rules. Sort of like on the price is right when someone bids $1 more than someone else. If the show didn't want you to do things like that they would change the rules.

Isn't the purpose to win? If they didn't like his personality, they shouldn't have picked him to be on the show. It's a quiz show not a personality contest.

People need to get over this guy. Just because he found a better way to win, people should be congradulating him. When is trying to do one's best a bad thing? Get over it haters!

I watch the show, and he's annoying and arrogant, but the best player. He always mispronounces his answers and jumps all over the board. He seems like someone with ADD.
