That “Jeopardy!” Rock Star Has Just Beaten His Own Record

Last week, Vegas sports bettor James Holzhauer came out of nowhere to take “Jeopardy!” by storm.

He not only won for the TENTH time last night but he raked in a record-setting haul again beating his own single-day winnings mark.

He won $131,127, which eclipses the record of $110,914 that he set last week.  So far, he’s won $697,787, which is second only to the $2.5 million that Ken Jennings won during his epic run in 2004.

Ken did it during a 74-night winning streak.  But James is on pace to surpass him in just 36 games . . . if he lasts that long.  At the moment he seems pretty unbeatable.

Last night, he went 40-for-40 on responses in the first two rounds and went into Final Jeopardy! with $71,114 and a commanding lead.  His fellow contestants had $5,400 and $5,000, respectively.
