Naperville Man May Be Named Jeopardy’s Greatest Player Ever
'Jeopardy!' is heading to prime-time television this week, and so is Naperville native James Holzhauer.
The Chicago Tribune reports that starting Tuesday night, (1/7), at 7 p.m. James Holzhauer will face off against Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter during “Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time" on ABC. All three men play the game until one of them wins 3 games and takes home the $1 million dollar prize.
Holzhauer now lives in Las Vegas, but still has family in the Naperville area who will be hosting watch parties for the first two nights the show airs, (Tuesday and Wednesday night). The first party will take place Tuesday on the second floor of the Two Brothers Barrel House at 16 W. Jefferson St. in Naperville, and the second on Wednesday will be at Quigley’s Irish Pub located at 43 E. Jefferson St. in Naperville.
Good luck, James! The entire state of Illinois will be rooting for you to win!
