So, there's a new reigning Jeopardy champion that is getting a lot of attention. Just not all of it for his smarts.

Uproxx introduces him as such:

Meet Matt Jackson, a 23-year-old paralegal from Washington, D.C. who is currently crushing the competition in a nine-day winning streak on Jeopardy, and likely not going anywhere anytime soon. In a profile posted to Jeopardy's website this week, Jackson says he was encouraged to try out for the show by his friend Sam Spaulding, who finished second place in the 2010 College Championship, winning $50,000.

But there's way more to it.

People are really drawn to the very creepy smile he uses during the introduction sequence.

It's kind of wonderful.

Look at it!

The Soup thinks it's really funny as well.

And on top of that, his signature celebration move is also a thing of beauty.

Here's Jeopardy's video, letting you know the man behind the smile.

They may have moved on from controversial dresses and DIY lip enhancements, but now teenagers have a new craze to keep themselves busy: black magic.

A game similar to the Ouija Board called the “Charlie Charlie Challenge” has taken over Twitter, Instagram and Vine over the last few days, which has people using pencils to summon a Mexican demon that will answer any question you ask it.

So how does it work exactly?

First you place two pencils on top of each other in the shape of a cross creating four quadrants on a piece of paper.

Two of them are labeled “yes” and the other two are labelled “no.”

You must then recite the phrase “Charlie, Charlie, are you here,” (or “can we play”) and if the top pencil points towards “Yes” then – congratulations – you have successfully summoned a demon!

Charlie will answer any important life question you wish to ask, including which member of One Direction you’ll eventually marry.

Because apparently Mexican demons have a lot of free time on their hands.

All you have to do is change the options in the quadrants to whatever you wish to know. Just remember to say “Charlie Charlie can we stop” when you’re finished, or else you will leave a portal to Hell open inside your home.

An alternate version of the game involves two players each holding 3 pencils in the shape of a rectangle. If the pencils move up or in, it is considered a “yes” response, and if they move down or out, it’s a “no.”
