Risk! champ Matt Amodio has adapted to his post-Jeopardy! life, but maybe this won’t be the last time we see him. Amodio, who won an amazing 38 matches to start the 2021-2022 season and pocket more than 1 million dollars, has an upcoming gig that could lead to him becoming Next Ken Jennings. This week, Amodio will be hosting a charity game for Children’s Research Hospital St. Jude, he reveals in a new essay for Newsweek.

He will host the show, be the MC and read the questions for a quiz round. “It was a surreal experience because I saw people at the event who were really famous and had millions of followers on social media, and then there was me, Matt,” wrote Amodio. “But it’s nice to imagine that my name is on that list.”
Amodio didn’t mention wanting to organize Risk! himself, but how much has he written about? respect Jennings. In fact, he says his biggest regret is losing before Jennings’ latest round of hosting begins. “I’m holding out hope that it’s on Risk! stage or somewhere else, at some point our path will cross. And the harder that road, the more twists and turns, the sweeter the end will be,” Amodio wrote for Newsweek. Although sometimes I worry that my excessive fandom is sending the wrong message! “
Chances are we’ll see Amodio return on Jeopardy! anyway before the season ends, as he might be required to return to the League of Champions.

He is also eager to play the role of Jonathan Fisher, Florida actor beat him in an October episode. “I envisioned beating Jonathan in many ways, including some replays of a match I lost and some future plays in the Tournament of Champions.

In a September Washington Post interview, Amodio said he’s not bothered about the behind-the-scenes footage that is stealing attention from his record run. “I am an introvert; I’ve never experienced such moderate, inattentive attention,” Amodio said at the time. “I’m really surprised how much I enjoyed it.”
Risk! now there’s another lasting champion, Amy Schneider, whom Amodio has supported on Twitter. “She was smart and fun to watch. I was amazed. And, our relationship in Ohio is a good one to have. I definitely feel understood by a person if they come from the same background. My Ohio,” Amodio wrote. “I really want her to do well, until we go to a League of Champions match together!”
