This is a great Game Show -- and now they have lifted their long-time limit of 5 wins in a row. Just in time for someone to come in and win… so far against 76 other contestants, and well over $1 million! It's really exciting! And then what happens? They go on summer hiatus…! ! Oh, no! Now we have to wait until September before we can see how much this young man can take :)l

Jeopardy is a very difficult game show, so if he can consistently beat contestants every night, then he deserves the money, and deserves to stay on until someone dethrones him.
