A video emerged Sunday night on Twitter of Holzhauer’s loss, which will reportedly air during Monday night’s episode. In the minute-long clip, Holzhauer and fellow Jeopardy! competitor Emma Boettcher both give the right answer for the Final Jeopardy question. However, Boettcher wins after betting more money.
Holzhauer’s markedly low wager was $1,399 and brought his total to $24,799. However, Boettcher bet a massive $20,000 to finish with $46,801. After she wins, Holzhauer is shown giving her a high-five.
On Friday, 34-year-old Holzhauer—who is a professional sports gambler—won his 32nd Jeopardy! game, bringing his total earnings to $2,462,216. If the leaked video is real, then Holzhauer will be given $2,000 for finishing second place, short of Ken Jennings' record-breaking 74-game streak and payout of over $2.5 million.
Following the leaked footage, Holzhauer tweeted, "Knew I shouldn’t have invited @Drake to the @Jeopardy taping," seemingly confirming his defeat.
Jeopardy!’s ratings have climbed since Holzhauer’s appearance, and it’s anticipated that rise will end when Holzhauer loses.
