“Jeopardy!” champion James Holzhauer is now over $2.5 million richer. All thanks to his quick mind and even quicker thumb reflexes. With many around the world cheering him on, there is one person, in particular, that is hoping his winning streak will end sooner rather than later. Who you might ask? His 4-year-old daughter.
“My kid cried about the possibility of her dad losing, so I told her we could have a party the day after it inevitably happens. Now she cries when I win,” the Jeopardy winner tweeted Sunday.
Holzhauer, who has won 32 games so far, will be returning to the show on Monday just shy of Ken Jennings’ all-time record high by only $58,484. Holzhauer now holds the record for most single-game earnings with $131,127, so for him to win $58,000 in one game is very possible indeed.
Ratings for the syndicated show have spiked by double-digit percentages since Holzhauer started his winning streak. But the Washington Post has noted that some people are actually rooting for him to lose.
Win or lose, we just know one little girl is ready for her party. We wish the Holzhauer family much happiness.
