This Guy Had The Best Reaction On "Jeopardy" And Completely Owned Homophobic Haters

"Being gay, having gay friends, and participating in gay culture has added untold richness to my life. I wanted to illustrate that."

HitFix writer and comedian Louis Virtel had the best reaction to winning the Jeopardy Daily Double, and later wrote an ode to the trivia show and how it caused him to reflect on his own sexuality.

After remembering Arthur Miller's The Crucible, he slayed with his snap and it was perfect.

It's actually the perfect reaction for everyday situations.

When you grab the last cupcake at the office:

When you successfully talk to your crush without sounding like an idiot:

When you find the perfect parking spot during the holidays:

After his snap went viral, he wrote a heartfelt piece about his one regret on Jeopardy and his sexual orientation.

But all that aside, let's talk about his epic reaction to his haters:

After the snap, of course there were "those people," but he brushed it off perfectly.

"As a kid growing up in the suburbs who venerated everything about Jeopardy, I would've loved seeing an expressive gay contestant own his homosexuality as well as the buzzer," he said in his piece.

His message to any gay kids out there watching Jeopardy? "Get really good and challenge me to pub trivia someday. I'll give you a hug before I beat you."
