Video reveals fate of ‘Jeopardy!’ star


NEW YORK — A video that circulated around the Internet on Monday showed the final minute of the Monday’s episode of “Jeopardy!” and the end of reigning champion James Holzhauer’s historic run.

In the video, the professional sports gambler from Las Vegas is shown high-fiving the woman who beat him, Chicago librarian Emma Boettcher.

Holzhauer had won $2,462,216 through Friday’s episode after winning 32 times.

The game show’s 32-time champion lost for the first time in an episode that airs Monday, falling short of records for total winnings and longest reign, but still making an argument that he’s the best to ever play television’s most popular game.
