Opening the show by acknowledging stats published on the show’s social media channels, host Ken Jennings praised the Chaminade-Julienne graduate as part of the “Jeopardy!” Big 4, a select Hall of Fame group including champions James Holzhauer, Matt Amodio and himself.
“We found some interesting distinctions,” Jennings explained. “Amy’s $950,000 in earnings means she’s averaging $36,500 per game – that puts her in third-place all-time. James Holzhauer is in the lead by a mile with $75,000 per game. But Amy is right in between Matt Amodio and myself, so, historically speaking, as you know if you’ve seen her play, very much the real deal.”
