    Does a winner like Seth actually get to take home the highest amount in his case 265K or does he forfeit it all by losing the last game ??

      Hi Harmien — Seth gets to take home all his winnings plus the $2,000 second place prize in his last game. I read somewhere that Jeopardy! takes out California state tax before they send the checks out. Can’t find that right now but here’s a link to an article that mentions it and talks about other local and federal taxes :
