Who would have guessed that the chubby teenager who lost 80 pounds in only 4 months for pleasing the fans would be the brilliant mind behind one of the most acclaimed game shows in the history of television, Jeopardy!, responsible also for the game hit to follow, The Wheel of Fortune?

It was these two games that mainly brought him an incredible wealth. After the sale of Griffin Enterprises to Columbia Pictures Television for the incredible sum of $250 million, he became the richest TV performer of all times, according to Forbes.
