James Holzhauer takes a back seat until May 20, as it’s time for Jeopardy’s annual Teachers Tournament! 15 teachers battle for $100,000, and a spot in the next Tournament of Champions!

The Jeopardy! Book of Answers is out now! Here’s my review.

Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to Alex Trebek’s preferred charity. (The de facto alumni association is currently inquiring with the show in order to determine Alex Trebek’s preferred charity; this will be updated when that has been determined. To date, over $300 has been raised.)
