"Jeopardy!" results: Super-champions overtake host question – Axios

"Jeopardy!" contestant Mattea Roach's run of 24 games came to an end Friday night, capping off what has been a historic streak of "super champions."
Why it matters: The recent run of new "Jeopardy!" stars comes after the show's host drama last summer that saw Mike Richards, a former executive producer of “Jeopardy!” picked as the new host of the show before an abrupt exit.
What they're saying: “It has really let people fall in love with ‘Jeopardy!’ again and forget about what happened to focus on all of these amazing contestants,” Andy Saunders, who runs thejeopardyfan.com website, told AP.
Flashback: Richards, an executive producer who led the search for a new host after the death of previous host Alex Trebek, was announced as the show's co-host along with Mayim Bialik on Aug. 11, 2021.
The big picture: "Jeopardy!" still hasn't nailed down its new host, relying on both Bialik and "Jeopardy!" record-setter Ken Jennings to host the show through its 38th season, per Deadline.
Since then, three contestants — Roach, Amy Schneider and Matt Amodio — all had winning runs that were among the top five winning streaks for the show, per The Associated Press.
By the numbers: Roach's run ended at 24 games after Friday's night loss, per AP, but she became the show's youngest major winner.
