‘Danger!’ Viewers love the quirky contestant and his hilarious response to the final peril

There are certain ways one can become one Danger! Symbol. Usually this is an impressive winning streak or success in the game Tournament of Champions. Or you can just be very funny, like a contestant on Thursday’s episode.

Joel Levinson, a content strategist from Ohio, was obviously there Danger! for a good time, not for long. He immediately won over viewers with that curly hair and mustache that drew comparisons to Sacha Baron Cohen’s beloved character Borat. Levinson was playful from the start, nodding and shrugging like a character in a 1980s sitcom intro.

At one point in the episode, Levinson took on a high-pitched voice as he responded to the cue, “Put on your glove and chain-link mask.” The sudden change in tone surprised host Ken Jennings. “I’ve never heard that voice, Joel,” Jennings said.

The climax came in Final Jeopardy!, however, when Levinson gave a humorous answer that he obviously knew was wrong. Responding to the clue, “This 1962 classic was dedicated to Albert Schweitzer, who predicted that man ‘will finally destroy the earth,'” Levinson penned Judy Blume’s 1970 novel are you there god it’s me margaret.

“I’m afraid that’s not correct,” Jennings said with a chuckle.

Commenting on the moment on social media, Levinson wrote, “Bucket list checked – my beloved @judyblume’s name checked in finals – if you don’t know the answer you might as well call on God for help.”

The correct answer was actually silent source by Rachel Carson. However, Levinson didn’t mind as he was smart enough not to bid on his joke answer. And while he didn’t find success on the show, rest assured he won a lot of hearts in the process.
