Watch This Adorable Kid Absolutely Beast ‘Jeopardy’ And Win Almost $20,000 In Two Minutes
You know if we're showing you a clip from "Jeopardy," it's got to be something good, right?
It's Kids Week on the show, which usually means you have five days off from watching Alex Trebek be awkward. But Monday's edition featured Cerulean Ozarow, who is destined to go down in "Jeopardy" lore as one of the show's cutest and yet most cutthroat players. Seriously, would you look at this kid?

Cerulean started off the game slowly and got to go first in Double Jeopardy. That's when he took over, answering eight straight questions (including a sweep of "Islands") to bump his score up to $11,000 before hitting on a Daily Double. And as the audience gasped, he did what any true baller would do -- he made it a "true" Daily Double.
Watch and learn, especially because I know you didn't know that Sri Lanka question:
WHY NOT INDEED? Oh ye of little faith in Cerulean! If you take out all of Trebek's little jokes and such, the kid goes from $2,600 to $22,000 in about two minutes, all but winning the game. But because Cerulean is a good sport, he let his opponents (who are adorable in their own rights, by the way) back into it ever so slightly before putting the game out of reach on the last question of the round.
Considering how high-brow and difficult this show usually is, it's been the kids who have made for the most exciting games over the past few years. Remember Leonard Cooper, the afro'd folk hero who also went big on a Daily Double and gave one of the best Final Jeopardy answers ever? Cerulean and Leonard are two of the best "Jeopardy" players of all time and they can't even vote. That's because they play like bosses, unlike so many adult winners of episodes past who go the safe route ("A Daily Double? $400, please") and just happen to get lucky.
Shoutout to Cerulean -- a Brooklyn kid who rocks a bowtie and once dressed up as Trebek for Halloween -- and his supportive family for being a true credits to the borough (and Park Slope!).
