‘Jeopardy!’ Legends Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and James Holzhauer Discuss Wardrobe Choices

by Thad Mitchell

Jeopardy! champions Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and James Holzhauer are known for their intellect and quick buzzer hand on the show. What they are not known as are fashion trendsetters.

The three men are considered to be three of the greatest Jeopardy! contestants to ever buzz in on a clue. The trio competed in last year’s “Greatest Jeopardy! Champion of All Time” tournament with Jennings taking the “G.O.A.T” title. Of course, the title was earned the hard way by Jennings as Rutter and Holzhauer are no push-overs.

It is always a laugh riot when the three Jeopardy! champions get together — think of three stooges, only with superhuman intellect. Once the tournament among the three came to a conclusion they got back together to watch themselves play the game they love. They offer up hilarious takes on themselves and each other in the 2020 re-watch and interviews. In one such instance, the trio offers up their take on looking your best while in competition mode. As you will see, the three champions have quite the comedic chemistry among themselves.

The video begins with Jennings correctly answering a Jeopardy! Daily Double and offering up his thought process in the moment. It then leads to pure comedic gold as game day wardrobe quickly becomes the topic of conversation. Jennings points out that the Jeopardy! studio can be a bit frigid at times and recommends future contestants dress warmly.

“it is pretty cold out there, I have to say,” Jennings says. “Always wear an undershirt on Jeopardy! — I’ll tell you that.”

The conversation then becomes an assault on Holzhauer’s choice of Jeopardy! fashion wardrobe. In the video, he is wearing an interesting outfit that consists of a v-neck shirt, a tie and a sports coat. He points out that Jennings told him that he would “dress him up” with his winnings.

“You look fantastic,” Jennings says with a hint of sarcasm. “I don’t regret a thing.”

Rutter also gets in on the action, suggesting Holzhauer’s outfit is very becoming — again, with hints of sarcasm.

“I feel like the v-neck really works,” he says. “It really highlights the tie knot.”

Jennings, the most successful game show contestant of all time, was the first to step in as host after the passing of Alex Trebek. He’s made it no secret he would the permanent position and is likely to receive consideration.
