Sunday, leaked footage from “Jeopardy!” made its rounds on social media and in the footage, it appears that James Holzhauer’s winning streak will be coming to an end. In the video, James is playing Final Jeopardy with another contestant named Emma and they both get the Final Jeopardy question correct, but in a twist, James only wagered $1,399, but his opponent wagered over $20,000 and that made her the new champion.
The clip also showed Alex Trebek and even the audience gasping at the surprise outcome. Sony Pictures has sent out copyright complaints to different hosting sites about the clip and it has subsequently been taken down.
