'Jeopardy' Wasn't Designed for a Contestant Like James Holzhauer
Jennings was extremely valuable to Jeopardy in this regard, but with average winnings of about $34,000 an episode, he was a bargain compared with Holzhauer, who’s averaging roughly $71,000. In fact, if reports of Trebek’s salary are indeed correct, Holzhauer is currently outearning even the show’s host on a per-episode basis—though, of course, he has a bit less job security.

There's 46 tape days a year
5 episodes are filmed per day (usually). 5 X 46 = 230 episodes per year
The article says Trebek makes 10 million per year.
10,000,000/230 = $43,478 per episode for Trebek

'Jeopardy!' Legend Ken Jennings on James Holzhauer: 'It's Absolutely Insane'
"I remember showing up at the Sony parking garage to play in the morning after my games had started running. That was the only time that Jeopardy! contestants could show up and see the returning champion be the person they saw on TV. I would show up, and their faces would just fall. Honestly, that’s a huge part of the streak: People thinking Well, I can’t beat this guy. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy."

Imagine finally getting on Jeopardy, showing up and seeing that you're facing a guy you've seen on TV for weeks, breaking records and dominating every game.

I started recording these on Friday with Youtube TV. I forgot YT TV could do that until bmyoungs told me he was doing the same thing.

We actually caught part of Friday's episode when we were at my parents' house. It's crazy how much he dominated the other 2 contestants.

He's over a million in 14 games. $1,061,554. Tonight looked like it could be close and the two losers had reasonable scores at 16k each. Too bad he only beat them by 100k

Obviously they have a prize budget and he has likely blown that out of the water. I wonder how far in advance they sell ad space and will they say 20 episodes from now (which may already be filmed) James is still on and ratings are insane ad prices are triple.

I read these stories in the morning and think "I need to watch when I get home!" and then at night I forget it was recorded because I never go into YT TV

He looked so nervous as soon as he hit that big double Jeopardy

Tonight's game was not even remotely close 98k to 5k

Oh yeah. Very good game.

I feel silly that I always thought Jeopardy was a daytime show, not evening. We watch it off YT TV while getting ready for dinner and have been watching a 23 hour old episode. We must be watching JUST before the new one airs.

Holzhauer’s 21st victory adds $80,615 to his wallet and skyrockets his total earnings up to $1,608,627. He’s surpassed Julia Collins’ 20-game winning streak from 2014. Now, the only “Jeopardy!” champ left in his crosshairs is the notorious Ken Jennings.
