Jeopardy Masters’ James Holzhauer reveals he ‘will be back on the show’ and says producers ‘didn’t say no’
JEOPARDY Masters contestant James Holzhauer has announced that he will be “competing” again on the show.
He revealed that the producers “didn’t say no” to his return.
On Thursday James re-shared an article from vulture.
The publication spoke to the show’s executive producer, Michael Davies, about the Masters tournament.
James re-shared part of the article where Michael talked about him.
It said, “James said something to me the other day that really made me laugh.”
“He mentioned that his wife had asked if the prize for the Masters could be that the player could play the Monday through Friday version of Jeopardy again!”
James then tweeted the screenshot, saying, “He laughed but he didn’t say no…”
James revealed his true feelings towards competitors Amy Schneider and Sam Buttrey.
Sam, 68, and Mattea, 24, were eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Masters tournament.

The self-proclaimed “game show villain” contradicted his staged nature and shared his personal experiences with contestants online.
James, 38, started the tweet series: “When my wife asked @Jeopardamy to join our fundraiser last year, Amy jumped at the chance to pay for her own way to Las Vegas and volunteer.”
“It was an honor to share the Masters stage with an inspiration, a phenomenal Jeopardy player and an even better person.”
The danger! The Masters star continued, “I had only met @sam_buttrey briefly prior to this shoot but his charm and wit were immediately apparent.”
“When he wasn’t busy winning the hearts of America, he was the only Masters contestant to beat me head-to-head on the signaller (check out the results in the box!)”
He also promoted and shared the links to Amy’s book, In the Form of a Question, and Sam’s guide, A Data Scientist’s Guide to Acquiring, Cleaning, and Managing Data in R.
Amy reshared his tweet, writing, “James may play a villain on TV but in real life he’s a great guy who is as enjoyable to be with as he is frustrating to play against.”
“And I mean it. If I didn’t really like him, I wouldn’t say anything about him at all.”
In the quarterfinals, Matt Amodio defeated Sam and Mattea Roach while James defeated Amy and Andrew He.
Matt and James advanced to the semifinals, which begins May 22nd.
In the semi-finals, the remaining four players compete in different groups of three, with one participant missing from each game.
The top three will then go head-to-head in the final on Wednesday, May 24th.
