Any Body Watch Jeopardy?

Post by Doka » 04-22-2019 07:52 PM

Love Jeopardy! James Holzhauer is a living phenomenon to watch. He not only is answer smart, he also plays the game, like a seasoned gambler(which I think he is). Catch the show if you can :D




Jeopardy! Legend Ken Jennings on James Holzhauer: 'It's Absolutely Insane'

In his 11-game run, James Holzhauer has dominated Jeopardy! like no one before. That’s no exaggeration. He already holds the four highest-scoring games in the show’s history, and his $771,920 regular-season winnings surpass all but one player in the Jeopardy! firmament: Ken Jennings.

You remember Jennings. In 2004, he went on a 74-game, $2,520,700 romp, shattering Jeopardy! records along the way. No one since has lasted more than 20 games, and no one has come anywhere near as close to the money record, especially not this quickly. In fact, at this same point in his own streak, Jennings had accumulated less than half of Holzhauer’s haul so far. At this rate, Holzhauer will surpass Jennings by the end of May.

The average show winner comes in at about 20 grand per episode.
Holzhauer's average is over 3 and a half times that.

At this rate he will Own ABC? Pretty soon the "Creeps" will notice he is making money, and cry "Foul". In the mean time he is fun to watch. :D
