Despite seeing historic, record-breaking scores, “Jeopardy!” fans are getting bored with its newest breakout star.
James Holzhauer, 34, has won 14 games of the popular trivia show and — seems like he’ll continue through many more. In addition to the long run on the show, he’s shattered several records previously held by other “Jeopardy!” champions.
On Tuesday's episode, Holzhauer surpassed $1 million in the shortest time ever. His $118,816 win put his total take at $1,061,554 million. This isn’t the only record Holzhauer broke, he previously won a game with a total of $131,127, topping the one-day record he set earlier in his run of $110,914. Before Holzhauer came along, the one-day record was held by Roger Craig on Sept. 19, 2010, when he took home $77,000 in a single game.
It’s clear that not only is Holzhauer a serious “Jeopardy!” competitor, but he’s winning each game by a very wide margin. For some viewers, however, his winning streak and breakout performances have made the otherwise competitive game boring.
“I'm starting to think #Jeopardy is rigged. Day 15 of the James Show. 😐 #boring,” one user wrote.
I refuse to watch #jeopardy. There's no competition," another user said.
"@Jeopardy Needs to bring back the 5 game limit for champions! This is boring," someone else noted.
"Wife: (deep sigh) well...this is boring #Jeopardy #jeopardyjames," a more sarcastic user wrote.
This guy on #Jeopardy makes the show boring to watch. No personality whatsoever," someone wrote, clearly taking issue with Holzhauer himself.
This isn't the first game show that Holzhauer has cleaned up on. He previously appeared on "The Chase" in 2014, when he answered 12 questions correctly, winning $60,000 and breaking the show's past record, according to TMZ. Not to mention Holzhauer's win was never topped on the series, per the gossip site.
