The word then transitioned to "Got'em," and now finally, to "gotem". There is much controversy over the originator of this term, but few doubt that a one Bei He played a critical role in its beginnings and initial spread. The term is also thought to be related to the card game, Texas Hold'em, due primarily to the two words' similar structure.

Use:

It is also used when a person has pulled off a particularly impressive feat, either by the person themselves or any witnesses to the event. "Gotem" is beginning to be used as a greeting as well.
