Sports Jeopardy: New Season News
via press release:
CULVER CITY, Calif. (September 22, 2015) – “SPORTS JEOPARDY!,” the only game show on streaming television, and its host, Emmy® Award-winning sportscaster Dan Patrick, return exclusively to Crackle on Sept. 23. The new season also marks the debut of a format change that’s sure to be a home run with viewers.
In an exciting new rules change, the weekly 30-minute program – which combines the excitement and prestige of Emmy® award-winning quiz show “JEOPARDY!” with the rich and diverse world of sports – will now allow the winner of each game to return the following week as a defending champion. As on the syndicated version of “JEOPARDY!,” returning champions may continue to amass winnings on “SPORTS JEOPARDY!” as long as they remain victorious. Viewers will want to don their rally caps, because the competition could get fierce on the series, which debuts new episodes every Wednesday at 9 a.m. ET and will also be available for on-demand viewing year-round.
As in Season 1, Sports Jeopardy! contestants will continue to play for points; the player with the most points at the end of each game wins $5,000, then returns the next week for a shot at another $5,000 and another win.
Tens of thousands of contestants registered online for auditions held this summer in several cities around the United States. Each contestant was then presented with a qualifying test of 30 clues in 30 sports-related categories for the first phase of the audition process. For those who passed that initial test, the second phase of auditions featured mock game play and a short interview. Qualified contestants who passed the test and interview and met all eligibility requirements may go on to appear in this season of the show.
