I hope this new champion doesn't last long, don't care for her at all.

I couldn't believe she was blowing him away on the signalling device toward the end of the game. I was starting to think James was throwing the game but his sophisticated final wager shows he was desperate for a win right till the end. It's a mental game and I think Emma just rattled his confidence.

youtube preview

 

The three top money winners in Jeopardy history will vie for a share of $1.5 million US in January.

 

ABC and the quiz show's producer said Monday that Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and James Holzhauer will compete in prime-time episodes on the network.

 

The first contestant to win three matches will receive $1 million. Each runner-up will take home $250,000.

 

Alex Trebek will host the contest, titled Jeopardy: The Greatest of All Time and debuting 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 7.

 

Rutter is the top all-time money winner with $4.7 million, followed by Jennings with $3.4 million and Holzhauer with $2.7 million.

my money is squarely on holzhauer.  so presumably this could last all week or even into week #2.  ratings bonanza i'm sure for the abc television network.

Can't wait. My money is on Holzhauer as well. However, these guys are super smart and excellent Jeopardy players. What could happen is that James will bet big but miss a key Daily Double, and that would give the slightly less daring Ken or Brad a critical win. I can't help thinking though, that this may be the culmination of the show, and Alex's career. Who knows what will happen in the autumn of 2020. Will it be a new format, new host, new look show? Or will Jeopardy be put to pasture after all these years, as we mourn Alex's passing? I hope not.


Don't be so sure.:cool:

Vanna White was 'very nervous' to host 'Wheel of Fortune' after Pat Sajak's emergency surgery

 

https://www.yahoo.co...-221325124.html

 

White will host Wheel of Fortune for three weeks. For the first two weeks, Mickey and Minnie Mouse characters will take over her spot with the letters, while surprise guests will stand in at the board during the third week. And the best perk that accompanies hosting the show? White got to ditch her famous heels.
