I’m not sure about that. I would watch GOAT versions of Celebrity, College and Kid’s Jeopardy. Of course, with college and kids, they wouldn’t necessarily be in those same age groups now, but it would be fun to see them compete again. I’m just a fan of Jeopardy and it was so much more entertaining to me than most prime time network programming that I would love to be able to watch it.
They can continue to have their tournament of champions, or whatever they've called it in the past for celebrities, colleges and kids. What I meant is how could they do a Greatest of All Time champion again? They had the three "best" contestants of all times competing. Would they have them compete again? Or come up with some other criteria for greatest?

All it takes is for someone new to go on a run and then the discussion starts again. But if Alex is not the host it would not be same as the new host would not have the relationship with the ones that just competed.

I would like to see a rematch. If the results were the same then no more. If not, rematches would be interesting and time would tell if anyone is really the best. The winner might have been luckier with getting the topics that he was better at.

Thinking earlier that there have been lots of great players who competed during the reins of Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer that lost to them for various reasons. Like being far ahead after Double Jeopardy, but losing in Final. It might be interesting to re-invite some of these players to compete among themselves. I don't have a clue how to choose who might be worthy, and of course it would just be billed as a 'second chance'. That said, they may already have enough new applicants that they don't need new gimmicks.

just a thought.

Today Alex showed that while he may be well versed in French pronunciation, he cannot pronounce Wisconsin cities.

I didn't watch but I know Jennings won. My question: How many games did each contestant win? From what I understand, the ultimate champion was the first to win three games.

Jennings won 3. James won 1. Brad Ritter didn't win any.
