Say it ain’t so! According to a leaked video, James Holzhauer, the “Jeopardy!” phenom, will lose the throne on Monday’s episode of the show, which would put an unfortunate end to his 32-day winning streak. If the highly-circulated reports are to be believed, this would mean that he would fall short of besting legend Ken Jennings’ record-setting grand total of over $2.5 million.

According to The Daily Mail, the video, which is approximately one minute long, reveals Holzhauer being defeated by rival Emma Boettcher. Not wagering enough money in Final Jeopardy! appears to have been the fatal mistake as both Holzhauer and Boettcher are said to have given the correct response to the ultimate question.

As seen in the clip, the audience audibly gasps once the fate is sealed. James, however, walks over to Boettcher to offer a high five of congratulations.

If true, this would be a sad day for James fans, a group which includes Jennings himself. When previously asked on “Good Morning America” about Holzhauer’s impressive run, he told Amy Robach, “It’s really just astounding what he’s doing.”

Show host Alex Trebek himself can also be counted amongst the loyal supporters that the champion has amassed during his time at the buzzer. “He has forced me to change a view that I’ve had for many years...that the Ken Jennings record will never be broken,” the host said in disbelief on GMA last month.

Holzhauer is taking it all in stride, though, as he hinted to the finality in a tweet from Sunday. In it, he stated that his daughter “cried about the possibility of her dad losing,” so he informed her that they could have a party when the day eventually came. “Now she cries when I win,” he added. I'd wager that his daughter will have a fantastic party in the near future and that James will be very missed on the show.
