It seemed as though Jeopardy! contestant James Holzhauser was unstoppable, but alas, all good things must come to an end.
In a clip that was leaked and has since gone viral, Holzhauser was taken down after an incredible 33-game winning streak. Sony Pictures has sent out a slew of copyright complaints, but the clip is available below (for now at least.) Holzhauser managed to get the Final Jeopardy question correct, but instead of wagering big, which he is known for, he only wagered $1,399. Contestant Emma Boetcher, however, also got the Final Jeopardy question correct, but she wagered a whopping $20,000.
However, don’t cry for Holzhauser. His total winnings add up to $2,464,216.
Now, if the producers of Jeopardy! don’t set up a week of shows pitting Holzhauser against reigning all-time winner Ken Jennings then they’re just leaving a golden opportunity on the table.
