‘Jeopardy!’ Bringing Back James Holzhauer

After “Jeopardy James” Holzhauer’s stunning run on the venerable game show earlier this year, “Jeopardy!” confirmed that it will be bringing him back to the show.

Holzhauer, who won 32 consecutive games and amassed $2.46 million in winnings between April and June, will be back on “Jeopardy!” in November for the show’s Tournament of Champions, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.

The tournament, which will air from Nov. 4-15, will feature 15 players who have won on the show during the past two seasons — one of whom will be Emma Boettcher, the Chicago librarian who ended Holzhauer’s winning streak.

The champions will compete for a $250,000 grand prize.

“Holzhauer, who sought to break Ken Jennings’ record of 74 consecutive wins, brought the game show to a new ratings high with an 8.3 in household ratings, its highest in 14 years,” THR notes. “The professional sports gambler from Las Vegas joined Jennings as one of only two people to ever win more than $1 million in regular-season play on the game show.”
