Do you mean of the average of what people won on a single game or all the money from a persons time on a show and just the winners and not the second and third place winnings. A link to Jeopardy shows the list of highest games from 75, 000 to just 30,000 and a quarter of those were won by Ken Jennings. An average amount won would be between 10 and 15 thousand, but they have many different methods to determine an average than to just total and divide.
