Standings for the next Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions

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

Current through 2020-11-30, covering 242 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. Season 37 started on time on September 14, with only Southern California residents being cast to play. Zach Newkirk, the defending champion on June 12, did not defend in the opener; he will return at a later date to be determined.

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.
