Word on the street is that Jeopardy! will air a “greatest of all time” tournament in January, the winner to take home $1 million. Participants will be the three players who’ve won the greatest amount of cash in the show’s history: Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and James Holzhauer.
Whoa. That’s murderer’s row. What a time to wish you still had “TV.” (TV? That old thing?)
Let the record show these gentlemen have already taken Jeopardy! for $10.7 million, but this is totally not about the money. This is war, and the combatants worthy of such a distinction. It’s sort of beyond anything we see in the “regular” sports, which have championship contests every season. This is, perhaps, a once-in-a-lifetime event, akin to a heavyweight title bout or Elvis television special.
This is the kind of thing I would totally buy on pay-per-view.
Think about it, Jeopardy!
