Jeopardy! kicked off the week with another brand new episode on Monday night. The new game also gave the defending champion their first chance at a title defense.

Tonight’s show comes not long after rumors that Jeopardy! will soon pick a permanent host. Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik have been switching off in recent months, but it sounds like the show is ready to make a decision.

Who is the current Jeopardy! champion?

Joe Feldmann, a technology professional from Bethesda, Maryland, is the current Jeopardy! champion. His victory last Friday earned him a one-day total of $22,900.

His competition on Monday night included Emma Henke, a writer from Madison, Wisconsin, and Armand Sanchez, a high school teacher from San Jose, California.

It was a competitive game after the “Jeopardy!” round. Feldmann led with $6,600, followed closely by Sanchez with $6,000. Henke was within striking distance with $4,600.

“Double Jeopardy!” saw things remain tight among all three players. Feldman still held a slight lead with $11,800. Henke jumped into second with $11,000, with Sanchez sitting in third with $6,800.

Only Feldmann came up with the correct response in “Final Jeopardy!” tonight. His big wager paid off, giving the Jeopardy! champion a two-day total of $45,000.
