Disclaimer: This tracker is a completely unofficial list, compiled based upon criteria used for past tournaments. This criteria is subject to change at any point. The final selection is at the sole discretion of the Jeopardy! producers.

Current projections:
With a projected 79 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 250,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 2.8822 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.313).
An average of 4.4643 4+-time champions (standard deviation 1.594).

An early cutoff took place 10.705% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).

Tim Kutz qualified 67.085% of the time.
Todd Giese qualified 24.874% of the time.
Rob Liguori qualified 5.466% of the time.
Fred Vaughn qualified 0.897% of the time.
