A fan who didn’t seem satisfied with Ken emerging as the winner declared that James Holzhauer will always be the greatest of all time.

Another user made a joke about the moment when James threw shade at Brad Rutter for having low scores.

Tim Buckley praised Ken for not only his wins but also his talent, writing:

“I hope Alex continues to host #Jeopardy for many years, but when he moves on, I think Ken Jennings would be the best choice for the next host.”

Some other users took to the comments section of the tournament’s YouTube channel to drop their praises for Ken.

As reported by PopCulture, the competition kicked off on January 7 and lasted for four nights with Ken taking home winnings on nights 1 and 3. James followed closely with a win on night 2 while Brad Rutter didn’t have any.

Apart from answering a series of competitive questions, the three contestants also showed their support for the show’s host, Alex Trebek, who is battling pancreatic cancer.

The three contestants donned purple ribbons throughout the tournament as a show of solidarity for the 79-year-old.

The show’s first-ever greatest of all-time tournament was said to have broken records as is turned out to have huge success ratings for ABC. In fact, its Thursday night broadcast beat out the other three broadcast networks combined.

Fox News notes that before his time on "Jeopardy!", Jennings was a software engineer from Seattle who became an author.

Despite Jennings emerging as the G.O.A.T, PopCulture recalls that during the fourth night of the tournament, all of the contestants, including Ken, were stumped by two questions that they couldn’t figure out.

However, it was the one about Kanye West’s recent album, “Jesus Is King,” that shocked the audience.

Unfortunately, none of them were able to figure out the name of the album, and that raised a lot of eyebrows among fans.
