Standings for the next Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions

This table piggybacks off the official tracker provided by the Jeopardy! producers.

Current through 2020-06-12 (the end of Season 36), covering 186 regular-play games, as well as players who qualify automatically by virtue of tournament victories (CC = College Championship, TT = Teachers Tournament).

This table does not include the seven four-time champions from the previous ToC cycle with less than $101,002 in winnings (the total of Lindsey Shultz), denoted with a caret (^). They all ranked higher on the standings for the Season 36 ToC than Emma Boettcher (3 wins, $97,002), who was invited; the announcement of that event's field included a statement that "anyone who could have qualified for this ToC will be held over for eligiblity in the next edition." Here are the standings with those seven players included.

With respect to the coronavirus pandemic: per the show's own announcement, Jeopardy! suspended production on March 20 until further notice, causing Season 36 to be truncated by six weeks. That said, The Jeopardy! Fan reports that reruns have been scheduled through September, and prospective contestants are getting The Call and being scheduled for tapings in early August. It thus seems likely that Season 37 will premiere on September 14, as it would have absent the pandemic.

The table is sortable; clicking on a column's header cell will sort in ascending order; clicking again reverses the order. Each player's name also links to his or her J! Archive player profile.
