‘Jeopardy!’ champ James Holzhauer speaks on those who don’t like his style
James Holzhauer told The Washington Post that he knows there are viewers who don’t like his style of placing big bets and his continued winning.
SALT LAKE CITY — “Jeopardy!” champion James Holzhauer says he knows people might not like his style, but he knows producers don’t care.
James Holzhauer told The Washington Post that he knows there are viewers who don’t like his style of placing big bets and his continued winning. But, he said, the ratings for the show speak for themselves.
- “There’s definitely some people who don’t like the product they’re seeing on screen right now,” he said. “But I don’t think the producers are complaining.”
Holzhauer’s strategy includes making wicked big wagers on Daily Doubles to grow his lead to the point where his opponents can’t catch up to him, Uproxx notes. However, Holzhauer’s strategy can prove difficult, especially if he fails on the Daily Doubles, because then he will lose more money.
Holzhauer has skyrocketed into popularity with his victories. Multiple MLB teams — including the Boston Red Sox and Oakland A’s — are interested in bringing him into their offices, which I wrote about for the Deseret News. Holzhauer, who has always dreamed of working in the MLB, appeared on the MLB Network earlier this week.
