The prolific game show, Jeopardy!, is all set to return with a brand-new episode on Tuesday, December 27, 2022. Since the arrival of Cris Pannullo, who became the best player of the current season, the game show appears to have picked up a magical pace, and now a new champion threatens all around him. Ray Lalonde snatched another impressive win in the previous episode and will now look to extend his winning streak in his upcoming ninth game in a row.

In the upcoming episode, Ray Lalonde, a scenic artist from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, will face off against Maggie Frank-Hsu, a writer from San Diego, California, and Scott Handelman, a math and computer science teacher from Lincoln, Nebraska. The scenic artist has already amassed a tidy $219,300 in his last eight games and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Widely considered one of the greatest game shows of all time, Jeopardy! dates back to the early 1960s. Over the many years of its existence, it has become one of the most decorated game shows in the country and around the world. A lot of credit for this goes to the unique format and offbeat nature of the show. Additionally, the final round also provides some much-needed boost to its growing popularity.

But what makes it truly unique is that it allows viewers from around the world to be a part of the action from the comfort of their homes. Viewers can do this by guessing the correct answer to the final question ahead of the episode's airtime.
