Rachel Lindgren of Bend has made the final cut for returning players, capping off her five-game, $75,999 winning streak from season 34.
- Rachel Lindgren and Alex Trebek with their best game faces.
In total, the field consists of 15 players, all of whom won the most games since the last Tournament of Champions, along with the most recent winners of the Teachers Tournament and College Championship. Included in the lineup is James Holzhauer, whom you might remember from this year for ripping off an incredible 32-game win streak worth over $2 million. Talk about a payday.
This time around, the competitors will put their minds to the test to compete against each other for the $250,000 grand prize. Season 36 officially begins on Monday, September 9, and The Tournament of Champions is a 10-day event airing from November 4 to 15.
