  • Last year there were a few 3-game champions in the running for the TOC. Not anymore. If the next TOC is in November/19 will all the regular game contenders be 5-game streakers or better?

    Adrienne TannerAdrienne Tanner8 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • Sucks that some of these great players won't make it to the TOC....but I don't believe in curses. They all lost their fifth game in a variety of ways....but to say it's a curse is a disservice to the people who defeated these people in their fifth game.

  • They're saying a new champion will emerge in April, and that person could break existing records. Pretty sure the curse will end soon!

    • @Anthony Guarino That was James Holzhauer.

      Richard CorlissRichard Corlissหลายเดือนก่อน
    • @Anthony Guarino wasn't that incredible?? So great to see the game played so masterfully. Big risks, big rewards with this guy.

      Justin MJustin M8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • Richard Corliss Nope but a contestant broke a record TODAY!

      Anthony GuarinoAnthony Guarino8 หลายเดือนก่อน

  • What happened

    Wayne HoxitWayne Hoxit8 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • The reason: Once you keep winning, you let it go to your head. That’s what trips you up: human arrogance. It’s why I can always beat my friends at Smash Bros. They will lead by 2 Stock, and they let it go to their head. I proceed to whoop them while they bathe in pride and joy.

  • i totally beleive that . its tough so many factors kick in on top of the fact that you gotta answer the questions

    Nomon MunirNomon Munir8 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • Dude but seriously, I was wondering when they were going to address this. Nobody has won a fifth game in some time now. Definitely strange that they're only getting up to four.

    Khallil A. MarshallKhallil A. Marshall8 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • Why does the 4th game has a curse? I like when they win at least 5 games.

    Dalton RiserDalton Riser8 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • Everyone wants to be a legendary five-time champion. The pressure in that fifth game must be incredible!

      GNGN7 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • @rivera5b Right

      Caleb DuprestCaleb Duprest8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • Yeah they all broke the curse. I believe they didn't have a 4 in their totals in their fourth day like the rest of them. Basically a lot of people worldwide believe that the number 4 is considered to be very unlucky (cloverleaves are the opposite though)

    • Caleb Duprest don’t forget Brad Rutter

  • What if no one reaches 5 days? Who would play in the Tournament of Champions?

    MilhouseMilhouse8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • @The Liberal Aristocrat, Thanks for the info! I had wondered about that.

      Adrienne TannerAdrienne Tanner8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • The Liberal Aristocrat I’m pretty sure the winner would be from the College Championship, not from the Teen Tournament

      Justin M.Justin M.8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • Justin M. They announced that the upcoming teen tournament who ever wins gets Larry Martin’s spot on the TOC tracker

      The Liberal AristocratThe Liberal Aristocrat8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • Milhouse I think once they filled the spots (5-day+ champs, Teacher’s Tournament & College Championship Winners), and there’s a few spots open, they’ll do it by amount of money won during their short run. I wouldn’t be surprised if Dave Leffler, Anneke Garcia & Eric Backes show up since they won over $100,000

      Justin M.Justin M.8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • Well wgen they wanted ti do a tourbanent if champions they have used 4 day champions who were very umpressice But that wont yappen this time given there are already 8 or 9 people who have clenched a spot in the next tournament.

      Dalton RiserDalton Riser8 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • Ever since getting back into Jeopardy in October, I've watched all 8 of those players max out at 4. Maybe it's my fault? Am I part of the conspiracy theory? Am 'I' a conspiracy theory? Will I ever see a 5-time champion in a premier stretch again? Where's Waldo? These are answers I truly do not know.

    Blue WonderBlue Wonder8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • *but wer iz waldo though*

      FulloGamesFulloGames8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • Yes, it's directly attributable to you and I'm confident that each of the winners on the day the reigning champion lost would no doubt thank you for your service to our country, if he or she had the opportunity to do so. By the way, Waldo's in the kitchen. He's the "someone" of "Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah strummin' on the old banjo." 😃

    • @serenfan 456 What is the 4 game curse?

      Clark KentClark Kentหลายเดือนก่อน
    • Curse is not the same as conspiracy, clever guy.

      Kevin ZhouKevin Zhou8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • This conspiracy was created after the 35th Jeopardy season had numerous incidences of contestants winning 4 games in a row, only for each of them to lose their 5th game.

      serenfan 456serenfan 4568 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • How many episodes do they film in a day?

    theR0nintheR0nin8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • @How Grosserino is Kripperino's Bearderino Neither. My point is that although Ken Jennings is far superior to 99.9% of other Jeopardy players, Brad is #1 overall, hands down. Comparing Julia to Brad isn't fair, to say she's not as good as Brad. To say she's not as good as David, Larissa, Matt, Roger, Colby, Austin, Buzzy, ..., would be a far better assessment. There's Brad, there's Ken, and there's everybody else who was in that tournament.

      Jonathan HanonJonathan Hanon8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • Jonathan Hanon is your point that Julia is somehow equal to Ken or are you just being argumentative? The former is strange but I’m happy to discuss it. The latter I don’t have a tonne of time for.

      How Grosserino is Kripperino's BearderinoHow Grosserino is Kripperino's Bearderino8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • @How Grosserino is Kripperino's Bearderino That's not saying much... Brad Rutter beat Ken Jennings every single time so far. Ken hasn't won a single tournament.

      Jonathan HanonJonathan Hanon8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • @Blue Wonder Which is more or less my point. She got very lucky. Brad Rutter would beat her 100 times out of 100.

      How Grosserino is Kripperino's BearderinoHow Grosserino is Kripperino's Bearderino8 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • @How Grosserino is Kripperino's Bearderino Playing against very notable past champions though, she wasn't against the 40 people she accumulated her 20 wins against. Imagine if Brad Rutter wasn't on the show until the middle of her run. I don't believe she'd of had 20 wins.
