Hey, Ken Jennings — it’s time to start sweating. On Friday’s Jeopardy!, current champ Matt Amodio notched his 33rd consecutive win, landing him in second place on the game show’s all-time consecutive wins list.
“Ken’s always been the face of Jeopardy! to me, so when I think of Jeopardy!, I think of him,” Amodio said.
He surpasses previous silver medalist James Holzhauer, who had 32 consecutive wins.
His total now stands at 1,267,801, which places him third on the all-time Jeopardy! earnings list (in regular season play), behind Jennings’ $2,520,700 and Holzhauer’s $2,462,216.
