Gambler James: “revenge game” narratives are overblown— James Holzhauer (@James_Holzhauer) October 29, 2019
Jeopardy James: MY PAST SELF MUST BE AVENGEDhttps://t.co/HK7qxut79a
Holzhauer made headlines earlier this year for setting the single-day winnings record twice during a 32 game win streak in which he nearly broke Ken Jennings’s record for taking home the most money in the history of the show. And Jeopardy! James picked up right where he left off, going out to an early lead and leaving the other contestants with little to no chance of catching him.
Though some weren’t too happy to see his return…
…most fans were ecstatic to have Holzhauer back.
Unfortunately fans had to miss out on Holzhauer’s legendary shout outs during Final Jeopardy! as the show put an end to that tradition during his last run, but he continued the tradition he began on his very first show of using loved ones birthdays in deciding what to wager.
