Best Answer

Of the three contestants, the one who finishes with the most money wins the game and gets to keep the money. The contestant who finishes in second place receives $2000 and the third place finisher receives $1000. The winner of the show gets to return to play two new challengers. If the returning champion wins, that day's winnings are added to his previous winnings. If he finishes in second place, he receives $2000 for that game in addition to his previous winnings, if he finishes in third place, he receives $1000 plus previous winnings.

How are Jeopardy winners paid - Right after the show?

This statement is about the Wheel of Fortune show : Contestants receive their cash and/or prizes within 120 days after the airdate of the show. Even though that answer was for Wheel of Fortune it's owned by the same company that does the Jeopardy shows. They would not pay Jeopardy contestants as soon as your question seemed to expect. The show might not air for many months after it was completed.

Why is jeopardy a gameshow?

The definition of a game show is a televised program in which contestants compete in a game for prizes. A contestant can be the sole competitor such as in 'Deal or No Deal' or 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire' or there can be multiple competitors vying for first place, such as on 'Family Feud' and 'Wheel of Fortune'. The game show winner receives cash or prizes depending on the game. 'Jeopardy' qualifies as a game show in that three contestants complete answers/questions, and the person with the most money in their bank at the end of the show wins.

Can you get more money on Wheel of Fortune or jeopardy?

Wheel of Fortune has more single game winners that earn more than the Jeopardy list of 50.000 plus winners and the minimum for Wheel of Fortune is the same as the third place for Jeopardy. Only someone like Ken Jennings with multiple wins does better on Jeopardy. Since Wheel of Fortune pays out more money it would seem that on average you would do better on Wheel of Fortune. Many Jeopardy contestants leave with the second and third place prizes and still have to pay for all there costs to be on the program beginning with the audition including transportation and lodging if they were required.
