'Jeopardy! Champ' James Holzhauer Isn't the Only Game Show Wiz in the Family

By

James Holzhauer first made waves in 2019 when in just 10 games, he earned the number-two spot in regular-play winnings (behind only 74-game champ Ken Jennings). He also not only shattered the record for most earnings in a single game but then broke his own record.

Ultimately, James ended his regular Jeopardy! run on his 33rd game — and only $58.484 short of Ken's record. These days, though, he's competing on Jeopardy!: Greatest of All Time against two other trivia rockstars: Brad Rutter and of course, Ken. Although Ken won the matches on days one and three, James was victorious on day two. James is still very much in the running, considering the GOAT status is awarded to the first person who wins three matches; so the Jan. 14 matchup is bound to be a tense one.
