'Jeopardy' winner James Holzhauer is shaking up the game show's budget



"Typically, for the long-running show the prize budget has been determined by way of averages of what has been won in the past," Bob Boden, former head of programming at Game Show Network, told The Atlantic. "James' performance, I'm sure, is causing grievance for an accountant somewhere."

Oftentimes, shows take out insurance policies. Usually that's been for shows with weird but high earning, such as "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" Boden said he doesn't think "Jeopardy" has the same policy because usually awards more modest winnings.

. The Atlantic reported longtime host Alex Trebek's yearly pay is $ 1

0 million. Holzhauer's performance is also drawing in more viewers, which leads to more advertisement sales and renews alternative revenue streams.

Usually viewers aren't enamored by a single player, said Boden, but this is different. "In a situation like this, where records are being broken and broken every night, the excitement, I believe, outweighs the lopsided results," said Boden.
