As of Monday night, James Holzhauer and I finally have something in common: We both lost on “Jeopardy!” Granted, it took 33 games for Holzhauer to go down and it took me, well … one … but still.

What is arguably the most dominant streak in game show history has finally come to an end. The 34-year-old professional gambler fell to Emma Boettcher, a librarian from Chicago. After 32 wins in a row – the second-longest streak in the 35 seasons of the venerable program – Holzhauer finally fell.

But it wasn’t in the way I expected.
