Unfortunately for Adriana, she lost her streak to Drew, who viewers might recognize from Season 45 of Survivor.

By the end of the Double Jeopardy round, Drew was in the lead with $23,600, Telka in second with $10,600, and Adriana with $9,300.

In the end, Drew was the new champion.

However, fans noticed Drew continuously pointing to the clues on the huge blue board during the first portion of the game.

After the first commercial break, the former TV personality stopped his hand gesture which convinced fans that producers told him to stop.

‘STOPPED SO ABRUPTLY’

Viewers shared their thoughts on a Reddit forum dedicated to the long-running US game show.

One person said that they liked Drew, “He seems like a goofball.

“I wonder if they asked him to stop pointing at the clues after the first break.”

Another replied, “He stopped pointing so abruptly I think they stopped taping even before the first break to tell him to stop.”

“That was bothering me so much for no good reason,” a third admitted.

JEP’S NEW CHAMP

Within the last two years, not one player was able to last 15 games.

Adriana had won a whopping $349,600 throughout her streak.

Although she would make a return in the Tournament of Champions, Adriana seemed disappointed at her loss.

“I lasted 23 days of 26 with no shelter or food, which affected the noggin a little bit, but I’m hoping to be back on course for Jeopardy!”

“Survivor is hard on the body, but Jeopardy! is hard on the mind, so I’ll tell you after,” he joked.
