‘Jeopardy James’ to present at NHL Awards show in Las Vegas
The James Holzhauer tour of fame will continue next week when the “Jeopardy!” star presents at the NHL Awards show in Las Vegas.
Holzhauer, known as “Jeopardy James,” became famous after going on a 32-game winning streak on the famed quiz show. Though he is an Illinois native, he lives in Las Vegas as a professional gambler and was invited to present at the awards show.
The entire show will take place at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on Wednesday, June 19, with Kenan Thompson serving as the host. Numerous celebrities will be presenting at the show, with Holzhauer included in the group.
Holzhauer’s run atop the quiz show ended last week with a defeat to Emma Boettcher in an episode that aired on June 3. Holzhauer, who made $2.45 million on the show, is a noted sports fan and is a fan of the Vegas Golden Knights. He even rang the siren before one of the team’s playoff games this year.
