Meet Austin Rogers, the current Jeopardy champion, who has already racked up an impressive five-day total of $188,700 in winnings.

Austin is not only CRUSHING the game, he's also having a great time doing it.

And it seems to be paying off! He's already made almost $200k in just five days and chances are, he's gonna be around for a while.

And he's definitely getting some attention on Twitter.

The best thing on TV today? Austin, the best contestant #Jeopardy has ever seen. Would love to see the unedited epi…

He's even inspired a hashtag, #austinonjeopardy.

Dude. Austin the bartender is the best thing about 2017. #jeopardy #austinonjeopardy

People have a lot of opinions on Austin's whole vibe.

This #Jeopardy contestant is definitely the love child of every male indie band lead singer. Ever.

And though there is definitely a lot of love for him...

There are two types of people in this world: people that like #austinonjeopardy and people that don’t matter.

...not everybody is sold on his charms.

Am I the only one watching #austinonjeopardy and getting the profound feeling of "hipster douchebag"?

But that doesn't takeaway from those who want to see Austin on Jeopardy — in any capacity — forever.

Austin would be perfect to replace Trebek when he retires. Can I get a HELLYEAH?! #jeopardy #austinonjeopardy
