‘Jeopardy!’ Releases Never-Before-Seen Footage of Matt Amodio’s Loss
The winning streak of Matt Amodio on the television game show Jeopardy! has come to an end. Amodio has been a fan favorite, breaking James Holzhauer’s previous record in the process. Fans who were hoping for the Yale Ph.D. student to go all the way were taken aback.
Viewers witnessed the tragedy, but show producers shared the unaired aftermath on the show’s Instagram page. After 38 straight victories, his stint on the show came to an end when he was vanquished. Some fans were so disappointed that he lost that they believed he threw the game in order to resume his studies at Yale.
In an email interview with Newsweek, Amodio disputed this. He wrote, “I truly enjoy winning Jeopardy games.” “I always want to do more of that.” Jeopardy! has shared a post. (@jeopardy) Amodio was keen to beat Holzhauer’s record after beating the ultimate’s win. According to a report from USA Today, Ken Jennings owns the best 74-game record, which he set in 2004.
“Ken has always been the face of ‘Jeopardy!’ to me, so when I think of ‘Jeopardy!,’ I think of him,” Amodio stated in an official statement on attempting to emulate Jennings. “It’s a weird experience to be directly behind him.” Amodio didn’t stop there; he praised Jennings’ Twitter writing as well “Ken Jennings began Season 21 as a 38-day champion on this day 17 years ago. He’d go on to win another 36 games. We wouldn’t see him crowned until 2020, but we all knew he was the #Jeopardy GOAT in 2004. Ken is still alive and well!” In terms of how Amodio intends to spend the more than $1.5 million he won in the trivia game, he intends to invest…safely. “How can you go wrong with index funds and a tiny proportion of bonds, with yearly rebalancing?” According to CNBC, he stated.
