‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant Shatters Single-Game Record With $110,000 Win

‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant Shatters Single-Game Record With $110,000 Win

That was more than enough to set a new record for single-day cash winnings, the syndicated series said in a press release.

One of his challengers Tuesday was a professor at Penn State's University Park campus, Ariana Mikulski.

While plenty of viewers were no doubt scratching their heads at that one, Holzhauer correctly wrote down "WHAT IS QUANTUM LEAP".

Holzhauer's wife, Melissa Sassin, is also an accomplished game show participant, having won $28,800 on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire back in 2012. In 2014, he was a contestant on an episode of The Chase, putting in a strong performance, which, he said, prepared him well for his latest success.

Furthermore, he appeared on the show 500 Questions in 2015, heavy.com reported. Holzhauer, who had already been a three-day champion by the time Tuesday's episode aired, now has made $244,365 during his run.

"Is it too soon to start thinking about Ken Jennings comparisons?"

As his total stood at $72,600, host Alex Trebek egged him on by saying he was just $4,400 off the record, to which he sarcastically responded, "OK, I'll try". James Holzhauer, a professional sports bettor from Las Vegas, set the new single-day win total for Jeopardy! on Tuesday night, taking home a whopping $110,914.
