Danger! is a great game to play from the comfort of your couch. Any viewer will naturally pick up in some categories and then falter in others. A recent Danger! champion, winning $160,601 Eric Ahasic, recently revealed what his Achilles heel is. Did that get him into his final episode? Let’s find out.
Who is Eric Ahasic?
Meteorologist from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Ahasic immediately made a name for himself by ousting fan-favorite super champion Ryan Long. Long had won 16 games before a daily brace over Martin Luther King Jr brought him in. Ahasic was able to win, then went on an impressive six-game winning streak, gaining more than six figures in the process.
The worst categories
Game 6 caused some problems for Ahasic. If it hadn’t been for a few double dailies, it might have been lost. He then gave an interesting insight on Twitter, where he revealed some categories that gave him trouble. Ahasic wrote, “You couldn’t find a worse Final Jeopardy category for me than ‘TV Legends’ (‘Last Thursday’s Children’s Literature’ is up there too…).”
It’s a bit surprising to see a Danger! champion wrestling with a TV category. The dreaded category of opera is commonly thought of as a real killer. Ahasic jokes that he should have bid $0 on the Daily Double, a far cry from his usual high bids.

Bidding $0 wouldn’t have been the most embarrassing part of this episode either. One of Ahasic’s competitors, Mazin Omer, mistaking Michael Caine for Mick Jagger. It’s hard to live on national television.
The sequence is over
Ahasic’s risk taking in Game 6 was enough to earn him the win, but his streak ended the following day. Before Final Jeopardy!, Ahasic was in the lead. The category was “1972”, not TV Legends. The response read “In June he said, ‘Don’t lie to them so much that you say there’s no involvement, just say it’s…a comedy of errors.’
This puzzled the first contestant, but Megan Wachspress wrote the correct answer: Richard Nixon. Ahasic immediately knew he had lost, because he wrote John Dean. After, ahasic said “My first thought was disappointment. Nobody wants to lose. But then, honestly, I felt some relief. It was an emotional rollercoaster. »
Ahasic cannot be done with Danger!. Winning five games means he is eligible for the Tournament of Champions which will take place in November. He could once again duel with Ryan Long and face legends like Mattea Roach, Matt Amodio and Amy Schneider. We can’t wait.
