Anyway, congratulations to James. He sure made it fun.
Since the inevitable did happen the show itself probably planted the leak. One might guess that last night's viewing audience was most likely the largest of the series.

I recall that they showed Jeopardy at 3:30 PM weekdays in Chicagoland.

Yup Birdie Dreamer is correct- James explained his betting rationale in an interview.

Well, here's James' comment for those who think...he may have lost on purpose.

The most frequent explanation? The pro gambler had said his young daughter was anxiously awaiting his return, so he wanted to get home earlier.

That is funny. We will be seeing a lot of James on various Jeopardy Tournaments. And he is one of the more likable Jeopardy champions.

Luck finely ran out with double jeopardy questions. He got the first one right off the bat ������, so no doubling up and Emma got the last two basilly wiping him out of leaders chance. Emma had to miss the final answer to loose, she didn’t, he didn’t escape this time. He did have couple close matches and won them. Not to worry he should be back for tournament of champions.. if he don’t triple up on his winnings and figure it not worth his time? He also answered more questions that Emma but couldn’t catch her.

yes, this household thinks he either took a buy out or has something bigger waiting in the wings for him. No doubt he was/is absolutely brilliant, what an incredible mind and memory. What I wouldn't give for just some of that recall.

I'm a little annoyed at Alex. He made some unnecessary skeptical remarks at the beginning on the show after James lost. It just felt a bit disrespectful to Emma.
Ok, so now we know she only lasted two more shows, but still.
Not to be disrespectful to Alex but I think it's time for a new host. I saw him in a current interview, he sounded hopeful but didn't look so good. Hope the show runner is actively thinking about a new host.

He looked good in last night's To Tell the Truth. But I see that was from 2018.
