Rep Rush Holt Betters Watson
U.S. Rep. Rush Holt of New Jersey, who was an actual rocket scientist, actually beat Watson in a private 'Jeopardy' match at a Washington hotel. After beating the IBM computer during a round of competition, Watson managed to beat other Reps by about $10,000 after Final Jeopardy. Holt claims that he participated in the event simply because it would draw attention to the need for the government to invest in research and science, but we know that secretly he was doing the happy dance and saying, "Goody, goody."
