James tweeted a clip of the Jeopardy! Masters final and wrote: “After tonight, your television will finally, mercifully be James-free!”

He added: “(For one month until The Chase returns).”

Matt cheekily replied: “If you’re fast enough with the remote control buttons, your television can be James-free even during Jeopardy Masters.”

He went on, “It significantly enhances the experience, can recommend,” and added a thumbs-up emoji.

James won the Jeopardy! Masters final on Wednesday after a nail-biting face-off with Mattea Roach.

Mattea was leading going into a crucial triple-stumper Final Jeopardy but James pulled through with a safer bet, winning $500,000.

Mattea – who uses they-them pronouns – James, and Matt emerged as the finalists and James won by a mere 2100 combined points.

The trio competed for the title in two last lashes, or a two-game total point affair- with the 24-year-old putting up huge numbers against the formidable James.

Hosted again by Ken Jennings, the finals saw the previous standings wiped clean with the $500,000 grand prize, “Trebek Trophy” and masterful bagging rights just barely going to the pro gambler.

Ken announced that all three will be guaranteed slots in next year’s Masters – and James won an additional $100,000 for Project 150 (which helps Las Vegas-area high school students with insecure housing).

Mattea had 22800 before Final Jeopardy, while James had 9600.

Final Jeopardy under “Latin literature” read: “A work by this 15th century English Writer quotes the phrase Rex Quandam Rexque Futurus.”

Matt joke-wrote: “Who: Will win?” wagering 0 ending with 15200 total.

James was wrong with “TH White” and ended up with 43275 total.

Mattea was incorrect as well with “Chaucer” as it was looking for “Thomas Mallory” – they bet 5,915 -ending with 41685 total.

James bet a little more shrewdly – just 119 – and by a hair, he won.

“They tested you to the limit, but you are our first-ever Jeopardy Masters champion,” Ken told James.
