Who was the host of Jeopardy before Alex Trebek?

User Avatar
Art Fleming was the host of the original Jeopardy gameshow that ran from 1964 - 1975 during the day. Due to flagging ratings because of its poor daytime time slot, the show was taken off the air after the 1975 season. In 1978, it was resurrected as The All-New Jeopardy again with Art Fleming as its host and again airing during the day. It only lasted one season. The first Jeopardy with Alex Trebek as host was aired on September 10, 1984 in its present evening time slot.

What are the average winnings on jeopardy?

User Avatar
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.

Do all contestants on Jeopardy keep whatever they have won or does only the winner keep his winnings?

User Avatar
The winner keeps what he/she has won, the second place finisher receives $2000 and the third place finisher receives $1000. When the defending champion does not win a match, he/she gets to keep what he/she won in previous games, as well as the consolation prize for second or third place for that match.
