How to watch ‘Jeopardy’ for free

For 35 seasons, Jeopardy has remained one of America’s most celebrated game shows, dishing out Daily Doubles for like it’s going out of style. Luckily, it very much is not—especially with wizards like Brad Rutter, Ken Jennings, and the latest quizmaster, James Holzhauer.

It makes sense that Holzhauer bets upwards of $20,000 on a question without batting an eye. He’s from Las Vegas, Nevada and makes a living as a professional sports gambler. It’s unlikely that Holzhauer will ever work another day in his life though, as he shatters Jeopardy records with every lightning-fast click of his buzzer. On April 9, he made a whopping $110,914 in a single episode. He later broke that record on April 17, when he raked in $131,127. In total, his winnings clock in at $1.69 million across 22 games that have aired.

Holzhauer’s winning streak isn’t slowing down, either. His secret? A memory that would rival the Three-Eyed Raven. His grey cells can dig up and spit out minutiae about just about every subject, which is why he’s been crowned Jeopardy’s greatest champion to date. Don’t miss a second as Holzhauer continues to shatter expectations and wow audiences with his massive trivia might.
