Did Jeopardy! champ James Holzhauer lose on purpose? Fans are debating after the sensation posted a cryptic tweet this week.
On Saturday, he wrote, “I hope to brave as Andrew Luck one day. Imagine reaching the pinnacle of the only job you’ve ever trained for, finding no joy in it, and having the guts to do the right thing for yourself even though millions of fans will hate you for it.”
Fans immediately read into the tweet, assuming that he was really talking about himself and his tenure on the show — when he lost right before he would’ve become the all-time champion.
James may have been doing damage control or just trolling, but he tweeted again on Monday, saying, “New game: imagine you pulled off the most dominant upset in Jeopardy history and people won’t shut up about how the 32x champ must have let you win. #JeopardyEmma”
I guess we’ll never know!
