Moneyball Has Come To Jeopardy!
Jeopardy! and sports competitions seem to have little in common. Outside of the occasional sports category or a celebrity Jeopardy! episode featuring athletes, brains and brawn rarely intersect on the popular answer and question game show. However, that seems to have changed with the recent run of victories by contestant James Holzhauer since early April. Not only is Holzhauer a professional sports bettor but he has also brought a Moneyball approach to the gameshow. In addition, Holzhauer reinforces the notion that fans appear to like dominant champions rather than competitive parity when watching competitions.
