Leaked footage appears to show “Jeopardy!” champ James Holzhauer finally being defeated, putting an end to his historic run.
The video shows Holzhauer and the other two contestants answering the Final Jeopardy question. Holzhauer was in second place and only wagered a small amount on the final question, which he got correct.
Host Alex Trebek was shocked by the “modest” wager but it would not have mattered either way because Emma, who was already in the lead, got the question right and wagered enough to win.

As Trebek announced her as the winner, Holzhauer can be seen high-fiving Emma to congratulate her on her win.
It’s unclear what episode the footage is from but Holzhauer seemed to confirm his downfall when he responded to a tweet about his success by saying, “If it’s a rerun, I probably got this.”

The Blast reached out to the show for comment but has yet to hear back.
