Default Jeopardy! Format Change: Spoilers

Tonight's game ended in a tie. For the first time ever, there was a sudden death tiebreaker question at the end of Final Jeopardy. While it was interesting seeing this extra, the old way of both winners coming back the next time and keeping their winnings is a lot more fair to the contestant who ended up losing.

The tiebreaker has been in effect for non tournament games for about three years

I like the old way of co-champions returned too. I don’t know why shows feel the need to reinvent the wheel.

Hereís a story on the Jeopardy tiebreaker and some of the reasoning behind it

https://www.theringer.com/tv/2021/1/...-rules-changes

Since it was put in effect years ago in regular play itís only come up three times. So yeah, while some people bitch and moan when it occurs, overall, relatively speaking, itís really a non factor.
