This Week’s Contestants (Season 36, Week 18)

It is week number 18 of Season 36! Karen Farrell of Woodbridge, Virginia is now a 7-day champion coming into the week after sweeping last week’s games. How long will her streak go?

Also, remember that the normal “syndicated” games will still be airing at their normal times this week; the “Greatest of All Time” series between James Holzhauer, Ken Jennings, and Brad Rutter begins January 7 at 8 PM (7 Central and Mountain) on ABC.

You can find January 2020’s past J!6 clues here!.
