James Holzhauer says he is happy for his Jeopardy! journey and he “is a little sad” for it to end. Holzhauer laughs at the conspiracy theories people made about his streak coming to an end. Holzhauer finishes by saying he wanted to do an interview with Scott Van Pelt more than anyone because as a sports gambler the show interests him.

  1. This guy’s about as exciting as a used Kleenex. Most of the people who make it to Jeopardy do know the answers they just don’t know the trick with the buzzer. Alex Trebek is really boring too. It’s about time they got rid of this lame show. It’s hilarious how Americans are so impressed with people who just make a lot of money without having to work for a living. Somewhere down the line Americans have thought that net worth equals self-worth. How lame. Let’s Make a Deal was more exciting than this show….. What do you think about my comments?

  2. Alex Trebek cannot host Jeopardy! forever. I think the producers should pick either James Holzhauer or Ken Jennings to be the next Jeopardy! host after Alex. They would be great at it!

  3. He wouldn’t be able to make it over 30 games if given another opportunity, let’s be honest this dude had a tremendous amount of luck and I’m glad his run is over. It brought a lot of morons out of the woodwork that never had an interest in Jeopardy and all of a sudden love it, but have no idea how it works.

  4. Holzhauer coming from Stanford Steve’s job?

    CORRECTION: Sources: Stanford Steve beside himself. Driving around downtown HOUSTON begging (thru texts) Van Pelt’s family 4 address to Stan’s home

  5. He got beat at his own game. His goal was to hit daily double questions and dominate the board. He went against two competitors that challenged that by keeping him from picking as many questions as he usually did. The woman that beat him found both second round daily doubles and earned roughly 7,600 + 3,000 off them. James got extremely unlucky when his first question of the game was a daily double. He usually has 3-7K banked already before he locates that first daily double and goes “all in”, boosting him way above everyone else. This time he only netted 1K extra since he had no money to his name and could only double the daily double category amount on that bet…. He just got beat at his own game, simple at that. Hunting dailies and controlling the board.

  6. He wagered low, knowing Emma was gonna wager high enough to basically cover his score hoping she would miss final jeopardy. Being in second position he was only worried about the guy in 3rd place catching him as he could not out bet Emma, his strategy was hoping Emma was going to miss final Jeopardy, while making sure the guy in 3rd could not pass him. Notice James wager, he bet enough to make sure he was exactly $1 ahead of the guy in 3rd place had the guy in 3rd place bet all his money, while hoping Emma was going to answer incorrectly, which was his best odds of winning. He wagered and played it perfectly, she just happened to answer correctly, had she not answered correctly James would still be champion, and he knew this which is why his wager makes perfect sense.

  7. James Holzhauer, sports gambler from Las Vegas, Nevada, you were one fantastic and phenomenal contestant.

  8. I like james hes got an energy about him that makes me have a shit eating grim everytime he’s on air

  9. It don’t add up that he didn’t bet enough to bet her even if she had bet nothing on the last question. He’s a professional gambler.. it don’t make sense, he’s smarter than that

  10. One, Billy Beane hasn’t won crap.
    Two, sabermetrics treats people like NUMBERS instead of like human beings.
    Just ask Bill James:
    “If the players all retired tomorrow, we would replace them, the game would go on;in three years it would make no difference whatsoever. *The players are NOT the game, any more than the beer vendors are.”*
    Google that quote.

  11. Why is it that they are always kissing Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer’s asses? Brad Rutter has won 4.3 million on Jeopardy. He won most of it in Jeopardy tournaments because he was limited to Jeopardy’s rule at that time of only being allowed to win 5 consecutive games. Also Rutter has never been beaten by a human being. He has beaten Ken jennings everytime in the tournaments.

  12. I was SHOCKED when he wagered little on Final Jeopardy. You would think he’d want Ken Jennings record. He still would have lost due to Emma wagering a dollar more than James would have got had he bet it all. I can’t wait to see James vs Ken vs Brad Rutter one day.

  13. Could definitely see him working well as an occasional segment guy on ESPN who the anchors kick it to every so often.

  14. Good dude, but I’m suspicious. 1 game short of the record. After absolutely steamrolling people for weeks. And the guy just happens to live/work in the seedy underworld of Las Vegas. I’m not convinced.

  15. Seriously guys, if you just won 2.5M and famous, would you want to wake up from the alarm clock the next morning and get dressed up for another filming? Quite obvious he’s had enough when he bet what was it 1,399 on the final question? C’mon, simple math, he had his fun run and was done intentionally of course.

  16. Best run since Jennings. I can’t wait to see him in the Tournament of Champions and I hope he keeps himself visible in the world of sports betting.

  17. Finally a guest that holds the “news” idiot’s, who speculate and opine rather than report, accountable

  18. guys straight forward as i can be he has done a lot of methamphetamine watch him closely u can tell by his movements licking his lower lip at weird times and the sunken in mouth with the extreme looking underbite combined with the meth opal colored teeth cmon bro its textbook why am i only one to see this havent yall seen a meth addict before lol

  19. HE GAVE HER THE GAME FOR SURE!~ HE HAS NEVER BET $1,300 ON THE FINAL ANSWER, HE NORMALLY BETS AT LEAST $20,000. HE COULD HAVE BEAT HER BUT DEFINITELY THREW THE GAME! BYE JAMES, ENJOYED WATCHING YOU ON JEOPARDY! NOT AS MUCH OF A FAN NOW THAT YOU’RE GONE. YOU BROUGHT PERSONALITY TO A FAIRLY DRY AND BORING GAME. WELL ALEX ALSO BRINGS A LOT OF PERSONALITY TO THE GAME TOO. BUT THE LIBRARIAN IS KINDA BORING TO ME. OH WELL, GOOD LUCK JAMES, I KNOW YOU’LL DO GREAT THINGS! ♥

  20. Having met Ken Jennings, and talking to him about the shocking end to his legendary run, I assure you…he did NOT lose that game intentionally! He said: Nobody quits a job that pays you $30,000 per day…He just had a bad day. It’s called being human! James was making even more than Ken on an average day.

    Conspiracy theorists: let it go! You’re deluding yourselves and your so wrong that’s it’s laughable.

  21. I think he wanted it to end. He only bet 1,300 in the final jeopardy, while betting over 10k every other time

  22. His own trivia show, becoming a sports personality, Working with sports organizations, whatever it is, I wanna see much more of him.
