Jeopardy James is Back

Jeopardy James will be returning to Jeopardy!

It’s been announced that Naperville native James Holzhauer will compete on the show’s Tournament of Champions in November.

Holzhauer will join 14 other top players, including Emma Boettcher, who famously ended his 32-game run.

James’ Wins so Far

The grand prize for this play-off is $250,000. Not bad – but a far cry from the more than $2.4 million he netted during his streak on the show earlier this year.

Holzhauer holds the record for second highest earnings on a regular show run, and the top 16 slots for highest earnings during a single episode.
