" phenom James Holzhauer's historic run come to an end made the rounds Sunday on social media".

As Holzhauer's time in the spotlight has waned and that spotlight has grown, there's been plenty of talk about just how his time on the show has impacted Jeopardy! and just how long he can play his hyper-aggressive game.

The video indicates that both Holzhauer and Boettcher correctly answer a Final Jeopardy! question - or, more accurately, correctly question a Final Jeopardy! answer - but only one of the two wage enough money to win the round.

Though Holzhauer offered the correct response - "Who is [16th-century English playwright] Kit Marlowe?" - the Las Vegas resident bet an uncharacteristically low sum. James Holzhauer may not be invincible after all. By comparison, Boettcher wagered over $20,000 to bring her total to $46,801 and is crowned the new "Jeopardy!"champion". And if this is how it all ends for him, we agree with what Alex Trebek said in the leak: "What a game".

Holzhauer is poised Monday night break Ken Jennings' all-time record of $2,520,700.

Neither Sony nor Holzhauer immediately responded to requests for comment on the clip.
