Jeopardy’s G.O.A.T Tournament Winner

Song – Faith No More ~ “Epic” ( This tune is more meant for Brad Rutter 😆 )

Ferrelux Blog Quote:  Qui Maior ~||~ Who’s The Greatest?

So 2020 kicked off with a promise from last year to see, Brad Rutter, Ken Jennings, & James Holtzhauer face off for the title. Each one of them with his own stellar record from playing Jeopardy over the last 15 years. Brad Rutter with the most money earned, over 4 million, Ken Jennings with the most strategic plays, and James Holtzhauer with the most wins, having 32 straight ones until Emma Boettcher, beat him back in June 2019, but in ‘The Tournament of Champions’, he defeated her in November and qualified for Jeopardy’s ‘Greatest Of All Time’ Tournament this year. And we now know WHO that is. The challenge took place before and the Winner kept it a secret for a month. So the show aired on ABC Tuesday January 7th.  At the start, it was any Man’s game until we started seeing who the 2 Head Runners would be. Ken Jennings won the first game both times with his winnings totaling over 63k points in that hour with his first checkmark in place, since the first player to win all 3 games, wins the tournament, and these were hard questions. Then the next day James Holtzhauer won his set with over 82k points. Then the third game, Ken Jennings won with over 63k points. So what happened to Brad Rutter? Well, when you are playing against people over the years that aren’t that challenging to you, then end up in a real testing situation, people get to see the dumber side of you on live TV. It was embarrassing, this guy kept ending up in the negatives answering wrong on plain questions AND the Daily Doubles. He handled his own disappointment well though. Obviously, he’s a SMART guy to even be in the tournament though. His only chance was winning at least one game in a long shot, and then another to come in the running, but that didn’t happen. But, we went into the following week anyway with a 4th game which aired Tuesday January 14th, since Ken won 2, & James won his first and could very possibly win again forcing a 5th game. So this was a real face-off due to chance since either one of them was close to winning. The host Alex Trebek even said he brought the trophy out that night just in case. Ken Jennings kept getting the Daily Doubles & risked everything correctly most of the time. James Holtzhauer for the first time, got into the red, answering incorrectly and getting negative points. And on the final question, Ken Jennings WON by strategy risking ZERO points of his over 83k total when he gave his answer, which turned out to be correct. He won the trophy and 1 Million Dollars. The other 2 players received $250,000 for just competing in the tournament. It was fun watching. Oh & yes, I was able to answer a few of those difficult questions. I always do when I watch that show. So here’s YOUR Jeopardy Answer………

Bachelorettes JoJo, Rachel & Becca (2016, 2017 & 2018)

Here we go again………’The Bachelorette’ currently airing on ABC with the new bachelorette trying to find love. Back in 2016 we were introduced to JOJO (Joelle Fletcher) from Season 12, who was a runner-up love interest from Season 20, ‘The Bachelor’, rejected by Ben Higgins, but eventually found love with Jordan Rodgers, whom she is still with. Her season was filled with humor, fun, romance & issues.

Then we moved to someone name Rachel Lindsey, who looks a little like actress (Robin Givens) who was looking for love with Nick Viall, but ended up becoming the First Black Bachelorette in the history of the show & she represented well. Her season 13 presentation was humorous, colorful, romantic & racial at times. What some Black fans (& Whites) wanted to see was her choosing a nice Black guy, but she fell in love with a Hispanic chiropractor from Miami, named Bryan Abasolo, whom she’s still involved with.

NOW…….we move to BECCA! This girl came out of ‘The Bachelors’ Season 22, since the Producers decided to not use any of the men from Rachel’s Bachelorette season as the tradition of the show normally does. I guess too many strong Black men to choose from with the fear that they would keep it Black, so they reached back to 6 years ago & got Arie Luyendyk, Jr. who was in love with the then 8th Season Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, but she rejected him for Jeffrey Holm. And after watching his run being The Bachelor, people went from seeing him as someone to feel sorry for to…….WHAT A DICK! He ended up choosing Becca Kufrin to marry, the show ended, they were suppose to live their life together, till he had a change of plans & broke her heart to get with the other girl he rejected, Lauren Burnham, whom he is still with. So now we see Becca on TV looking for love……………………………..
