Watch your neck, Ken Jennings, because James Holzhauer is coming for it. Well, he’s been coming for it for a while now (and Ken honestly seems fine with the whole thing), but on Friday, the reigning Jeopardy! champion passed an important milestone in his hot pursuit of Jennings’s $2.5 million record with his 27th consecutive win.
By taking home $74,400, Holzhauer brought his winnings up to $2,065,535, making him only the second contestant to surpass the $2 million mark in regular season, non-tournament play. So cancel your Memorial Day plans (or, you know, an hour of them), because James will be squaring off against two new opponents come Monday, May 27.
