'Jeopardy!' GOAT: Winner Ken Jennings is the 'Greatest of All Time'

'Jeopardy!' GOAT: Winner Ken Jennings is the 'Greatest of All Time'”

He is now officially the Greatest of All Time. "The Greatest of All Time" tournament on ABC.

After holding off a late charge from James Holzhauer, Ken Jennings has been crowned the victor of "Jeopardy!".

"Jeopardy! GOAT" premiered on January 7.

The fourth day of the tournament was a little closer; Ken pulled way ahead by the end of the first game, but James caught up in the second, finishing the second game with nearly double Ken's score in that game. The winners will be decided by total points, per the "Jeopardy!".

But Holzhauer incorrectly answer "He has 272 speeches, the most of any non-title character in a Shakespear tragedy". Rutter wrote in reply, risking nothing. "It's true, and I should get credit for it", he insisted.

Jennings answered Iago, which was correct.

Jennings jumped in to a huge lead at the end of the first round, going up 8,000 over Holzhauer, and Rutter far behind.

Ken Jennings became a household name during his record-breaking 74-game streak on Jeopardy! .

In the end, Jennings won the contest's million dollar prize, with Holzhauer and Rutter each earning $250,000 as the runners up.

The prime-time tournament pitted the three highest-earning champions in Jeopardy! history against each other for the first time ever.

At the break, the scores were 44,000 Holzhauer, 23,000 Jennings and 1,400 Rutter.

The audience was audibly moved by the dig.

"It's gotten to be that kind of competition, hasn't it?" joked Trebek.

In a moment from the January 9 game, Jennings had the opportunity to "OK boomer" Trebek.

"I get to say it to Alex!" Jennings said. "What is 'OK boomer?'" Heading into the last Final Jeopardy, Holzhauer seemed in position for a late comeback when Jennings surprisingly bet zero points on a Shakespeare-related category.

"Who is the GHOST? (Greatest Host of Syndicated TV)", Holzhauer answered. "It's wonderful to see", host Alex Trebek noted.
