Jeopardy! Masters

The 2024 Jeopardy! Masters tournament has featured intense competition among six of the game’s top contenders. The tournament, hosted by Ken Jennings, began airing its second season on May 1, 2024, with episodes airing on ABC.

The winner of each game receives three match points, the runner-up receives one, and the third-place contestant receives none. The match points are reset at the start of the semifinals, and the top three players will advance to the finals.
