After the inaugural Jeopardy! Masters tournament was a fun addition to the game show's offerings, Jeopardy! Masters 2024 is back for another series of exciting display of trivia knowledge.

Featuring both returning and new Jeopardy! Masters contestants, the six-field tournament once again has some all-time great Jeopardy! players competing for the Alex Trebek Trophy, a $500,000 prize and the title of Jeopardy! Masters champion.

When can we enjoy the next edition of Jeopardy! Masters and who is competing in it? Here is everything that we know right now about the Jeopardy! Masters 2024 tournament.

Unlike daily Jeopardy!, which airs on various channels based on where you live, Jeopardy! Masters airs exclusively on ABC.

If you miss an episode live or have cut the cord on live TV options, you can watch it the next day on-demand on Hulu.

Jeopardy! Masters 2024 host

Ken Jennings hosted the 2023's edition of Jeopardy! Masters, and it looks like he is going to oversee the tournament once again in 2024. When talking about the Jeopardy! Masters 2024 during the finale, Jennings said that he would be back for next year along with the three finalists.

Jennings currently splits daily Jeopardy! hosting duties with Mayim Bialik and the two usually swap who handles the primetime tournaments the game shows air. It looks like Jennings have staked his claim on being the man behind the podium for Jeopardy! Masters.
