I saw this recently on Newsweek – Former ‘Jeopardy!’ Champ Calls For Show to Reinstate Limit on Win Streaks: https://www.newsweek.com/jeopardy-news-champ-reinstate-limit-win-streaks-schneider-amodio-nichols-1672138. Longer article. I don’t see the show doing this as the longer a contestant wins, the more people will watch it.

A former Jeopardy! champ is urging producers of the long-running quiz show to reinstate a limit to contestants’ win streaks.
The show has ignited much chatter among dedicated fans over the past year, thanks in part to the rise of such super champs as Matt Amodio, with 38 wins under his belt, and Amy Schneider, whose current run saw her equalize his record on Friday.
However, former champ Tom Nichols, who enjoyed a five-game victory streak on Jeopardy! back in 1994, believes that producers needs to revert the show’s rules back to contestants only being able to win five times before they’re retired.
