It’s about good luck. Nobody can be an expert in any subject.

– Zachary Newkirk, a Perkins Coie employee, comments on his record winning streak on Jeopardy! He won four games in a row in early 2020, and then the show was suspended thanks to COVID-19. The show resumed sometime in August, but Newkirk was unable to appear due to travel restrictions. When Newkirk returned to play in December 2020, he clinched the title of longest-reigning champion on the show thanks to the coronavirus crisis. Newkirk won a total of six games for a total of $ 124,871.
