Jennings, who holds the show's longest winning streak at 74 games, took the series with three wins over Holzhauer's single victory. Rutter did not win a single game in the best-of-seven series.

Holzhauer, the tournament's runner-up, took the country by storm after winning 32 matches in a row and won the 2019 Tournament of Champions.

Rutter first appeared on Jeopardy in 2000, when Jeopardy limited returning champions to five games. Rutter won the most money in Jeopardy history due to his number of tournament wins.
