‘Jeopardy!’ contestant shatters single-game cash winnings record

Wow, what a crazy few days!

“Jeopardy!” has a big winner on their hands. The longtime game show has a winner who has been lighting it up the fast few episodes, with no signs of slowing down.

James Holzhauer, a 34-year-old professional sports gambler from Las Vegas, Nev., was the winner of Tuesday’s episode of “Jeopardy!” with a total of $110,914.

This stunning total has shattered the show’s record for single-day cash earnings. The record was previously held by Roger Craig who, on September 19, 2010, took home $77,000 in a single game.

What’s even more entertaining is that Holzhauer’s total winnings, $110,914, holds a unique numerical significance — it’s his daughter birthday. She was born on November 9, 2014.

“I said all along that I wanted to break Roger Craig’s one-game record and I did it,” Holzhauer stated.

Holzhauer’s total winnings have added up to $244,365. He will go head to head against two new challengers on Wednesday as he tried to win five consecutive games.
