Risk! Champion Tom Nichols has something to say about the future of the show

When it comes to “Jeopardy!” successful, buzzer timing is everything. Ring before signal and you’ll be locked out for a fraction of a second; rings too late and the other players have a chance to answer the clue. The more you play, the more comfortable you will become with the rhythm of the buzzer. Champions like Ken Jennings and Amy Schneider have an unfair advantage over new players, Tom Nichols argues in essay, because they overcame their first day jitters and had expert vibrator control. After a few wins, this can make a champ nearly unstoppable. “[A] Some players from time to time have strangled daylight for sacrificial lambs, who have no real chance of defeating the reigning champion without a bit of luck or an impossible bug required,” wrote Nichols.

Solution? The former champion said: Bring back the five-game limit, say. This will prevent any one from dominating the game and yielding “Jeopardy!” back to its intended purpose: to be a “spiritual and limited competition among ordinary Americans.” If the win limit cannot be restored, Nichols believes it is time to pause the game.

Nichols’ Twitter followers are divided over his views. A number is in his right angle with a agree, “In other news, the water got wet.” However, others say the game is fine the way it is. “Former champion Jeopardy is jealous that he hasn’t won more than five games,” ridicule Writer. “That should be the title.” Again request, “Should we also limit the number of matches that professional sports teams can win?”
