The final clue on Jeopardy! on Thursday was “In 1891, this European said, ‘Perhaps my factories will put an end to war sooner than your congresses.'”

If you came up with Alfred Nobel — which none of the three contestants were able to — you would be right. However, if you came up with “This handsome gentleman” with an arrow pointing to yourself, you won’t win the game but you’ll win everyone’s hearts.

Unable to come up with the correct response, comedy writer Ari Voukydis did just that, much to the amusement of those in the studio audience.

“Good for you, Ari,” Alex Trebek said in response.
