He did lose to Watson. When Brad Rutter played the limit was 5 games do he only had to win 5 games too never lose. Then he won three championships because he was the best player along with Ken Jennings whom he did beat in the championship match.

What is the largest amount of money ever won on the game show Jeopardy?

Rutter v. Jennings The following is excerpted from Wikipedia: Kenneth Wayne Jennings III (born May 23, 1974) holds the record for the longest winning streak on the U.S. syndicated game show Jeopardy! Jennings won 74 games before he was defeated by challenger Nancy Zerg on his 75th appearance. His total earnings on Jeopardy! areUS$3,022,700 ($2,520,700 in winnings, a $2,000 consolation prize on his 75th appearance, and $500,000 in the Jeopardy! Ultimate Tournament of Champions). Jennings held the record for most winnings on any game show ever played until the end of the Ultimate Tournament of Champions (first aired on May 25, 2005), when he was displaced by Brad Rutter, who defeated Jennings in that tournament. Ken also appeared as a member of the mob sitting in podium #13 from the new game show 1 vs. 100 in 2006, and in 2007 Jennings was the champion of the first season of the US version of Grand Slam. Bradford "Brad" Rutter (born January 31, 1978) is a Pennsylvania quiz show host, most widely known as a contestant on the U.S. syndicated game show Jeopardy!. As of 2007, he has won more money on a game show than any other person in history. Rutter became an undefeated five-time champion on Jeopardy! in 2000 and has since won an unprecedented three Jeopardy! tournament titles: the 2001 Tournament of Champions, the Million Dollar Masters Tournament, and the Ultimate Tournament of Champions. In the finals of the Ultimate Tournament, Rutter decisively defeated Ken Jennings and Jerome Vered to become the show's biggest money winner to date, with a total earnings of $3,255,102. In twenty games, Rutter has never lost a full match of Jeopardy! (Rutter has trailed at the end of the first game of a two-day match twice-against Rick Knutsen in the first game of the Finals of the 2001 Tournament of Champions, and against John Cuthbertson in the first game of the semifinals of the Ultimate Tournament of Champions-but he ultimately won both of those matches with a higher two-day cumulative score.) Given his unequaled records and crushing victories over otherwise highly successful Jeopardy! champions (such as Jennings, Vered, Eric Newhouse, Bob Verini, Doug Lach, Tad Carithers, John Beck, and Chris Miller), Rutter is one of the best Jeopardy! players of the Trebek era.
