Brad Rutter Jeopardy IBM Man V Machine Press xlNtBYrEyLjl 400x400

Bradford Gates "Brad" Rutter (born January 31, 1978) is the biggest all-time money winner on the U.S. syndicated game show Jeopardy! and the biggest all-time money winner on a game show.

In 19 regular season and tournament games, Rutter has never lost a Jeopardy! match against a human opponent (though he twice trailed at the end of the first game of a two-day tournament match before coming back to win in the second game). In 2011, both Rutter and Ken Jennings (another holder, at various times, of the all-time money winning record for Jeopardy! and for game shows) were routed in a two-day exhibition match against an IBM computer platform developed specifically to compete on Jeopardy!: Watson. Rutter finished third in the match: both his first defeat overall and the first time he finished behind a human opponent. Because the man versus machine match was declared an exhibition match, none of the records from this match count towards official show records.
