When I discovered Jeopardy as a kid, I remember thinking how odd it was for people to start at the top and work down. Getting to those Daily Doubles first seemed like a better move. That said, I haven't seen this dude play yet but he sounds freakin' annoying. There's something great about the cadence and timing of the typical style of play - as if playing it involves a certain level of decorum. I like the thought that the contestants are more there for an enjoyable night out with a bit of thoughtful challenge thrown in rather than it just being about a win. If you play Jeopardy just to win, you're doing it wrong.
