  • James Holzhauer $2 million

Holzhauer was only the second Jeopardy contestant in the show's history to surpass $1 million in winnings during regular season play, behind Jennings. The only other player to ever win over $2 million was Ken Jennings, who amassed $2,520,700 over a 74-game win streak back in 2004.

One of the secrets to Holzhauer's meteoric rise has been his consistent willingness to take big risks, all of which have paid off thus far. Holzhauer is on pace to catch Jennings in just six more episodes.

Holzhauer faced stiff competition on Thursday as he trailed behind contestant Nate Scheffey during the first Jeopardy! round. He finished the opening round with $24,600, a show record.

The answer was "What is Sun Valley?".

As a joke, he wrote Las Vegas Strip with a strike-though over it, next to his correct response, which sent him over the $2 million mark.

Holzhauer, if he wins on Friday and earns at least an additional $8,865, will then reach $2 million. "I could have bet nothing-or even 30 thousand instead of 35-in today's Final Jeopardy and guaranteed hitting that milestone, but I wasn't willing to throw away so much expected value in order to do so".
