I think Alex enjoyed Brayen's winning streak. I certainly wanted to see how he did in this year's tournament. My sympathy goes out to his family.

I think Alex enjoyed him as well. I read an article where producer, Mike Richards, said Brayden charged Alex with a certain energy. The article called Brayden "Alex's last champion" or something to that effect. I don't recall the exact words. 

 

Also, thank you for you kind words to me on another thread. It was very nice of you. Smiley Happy

I was so sorry to hear the news of Brayden's passing.

 

We enjoyed watching him on the show.  He seemed like such a likeable young man.

 

It is wonderful that one of his dreams was to be on Jeopardy and he was fortunate enough to do that with Alex.  It must have been such a thrill for him.

 

My heart goes out to his family and friends.

@Lindsays Grandma you are mistaken.  Read the article again.

The article is very awkwardly written and does require a careful, thorough reading.

Maybe he has not really passed away. There are sicko pranksters who produce lies which become widely circulated.
