Q. What is Crackle?
Legendary sportscaster Dan Patrick is the face of Crackle’s new weekly gameshow, “Sports Jeopardy!” Just like Alex Trebek and the original “Jeopardy!,” Patrick hosts three contestants in a battle of knowledge. Unlike Trebek, Patrick quizzes his participants on their knowledge of sports.
“Sports Jeopardy!” has the same format as its predecessor. Participants are given their choice of six categories, with point values for each of those ranging from 250 to 1,000. Instead of playing for money on each question, however, the challengers on Sports Jeopardy! play for grand prizes of $5,000, $2,000 and $1,000.

Patrick, who has worked for ESPN, Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports, has built a career on his brash style of dry comedy. He doesn’t miss an opportunity for a joke. He has a back-and-forth with his trio of competitors that is reminiscent of the sports bar banter. The host pokes fun at eventual pilot winner Kenny Chung’s extensive jersey collection, claiming it’s the reason Chung is still single. Patrick’s words have just a hint of zip to them, unlike Trebek.
