    The new champ looked like Holthauer in the first round
    She looked like a deer in the headlights in the second round and blew the fInal Jeopardy question

    From what I understand he wagered low so the 3rd place guy wouldn't beat him or something confusing like that.
    So she already lost ?

    Nope
    She had enough in Final Jeopardy that she couldn’t be beat

    But after a huge first round, she was nothing in the second

    Well, it looks like Jeopardy is back to it's normal ebbs and flows. The champ lost today.

    Too bad, she was so close to the 100,000 dollar mark (that is what gets you invited back for the champion tournament).

    She was smart but lacked a killer instinct

    No he didn't. He was in second place, and knew that there was no amount he could bet to beat her. His best hope was to bet light and hope that she bet heavy and missed the question.

    I mean, for crying out loud, the dude is a professional gambler and knows how to read the odds, and what strategy would be the best course of action.

    He threw the game. Watch the episode again. Watch the man's body language BEFORE the game begins. Why doesn't he know more answers? After a month of using the thing to buzz in, he gets taken by a newcomer that easily?
