The Sports Jeopardy! Championship, a two-episode event featuring the top players from the show’s first season battling to see whose sports knowledge reigns supreme, will begin Wednesday, September 9 and conclude Wednesday, September 16 on Crackle. Sports Jeopardy! is hosted by Emmy® Award-winning sportscaster Dan Patrick, who recently announced his return for Season 2 of the weekly live game show series.
The winner will take home the grand prize of $50,000; the second-place finisher wins $25,000 and third place claims $10,000. The three contestants set to compete earned the highest point totals during regular season play. They are:
· Steve Greene, a writer from Van Nuys, Calif.
· Nathaniel Marks, an actuary from West Hills, Calif.
· Justin Shibilksi, a senior manager at FedEx Ground from Aurora, Ill.
All three contestants will play in both the September 9 and September 16 episodes; the player with the highest cumulative score at the end of the second game wins and is named the first-ever Sports Jeopardy! Season Champion.
Sports Jeopardy! allows for a unique level of interactivity as viewers can download the free mobile game, available on iOS, Google Play, and Amazon, which interacts with the show as a second screen application.
The second season of Sports Jeopardy! will begin streaming all-new episodes on September 23. New episodes will debut every Wednesday at 9 am EST, and will also be available on demand year round with a total of 52 episodes each year.
