Andrew He hails from San Francisco, Calif., where he is a software developer. We know Andrew from his time on Jeopardy! and his risky move to take the daily double and wage "all of it."

Andrew appeared on Season 38 and was a five-game champion. He was finally beaten by Amy Schneider.

The question that lost Andrew his sixth game was, "A cemetery on this island has the graves of Robert Fulton and two of the first four Treasury secretaries." The correct answer was Manhattan, which won Amy the game. Andrew wrote down "Ellis Island."

Andrew and Amy faced off again in the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions. During the final Jeopardy! category, the clue was, "The Jan. 12, 1864, Washington Evening Star reported on a performance of this 'dashing comedy' to 'a full and delighted house.'" Andrew and Amy both wrote Our American Cousin. Since Amy was in the lead and with a big wager, she won again.

In May 2023, Andrew returned, ready to once again face off against his nemesis Amy. (OK, maybe we're being a little dramatic, but Jeopardy! Masters is a big deal.) As for who else came back to compete for the $500,000: Matt Amodio, Mattea Roach, Sam Buttrey, and James Holzhauer
