'Jeopardy!' champion Matt Amodio is now the 4th highest-earning contestant ever after 14-game streak

Matt Amodio has been on a winning streak through Robin Roberts, LeVar Burton and David Faber's guest hosting runs

"Jeopardy!" champion Matt Amodio added two more accolades to his current winning streak, earning him a place as one of the best contestants of all time. 

After winning his 14th consecutive game win on Monday, the graduate student from New Haven, Conn. earned himself a grand prize total of $440,600, making him the fourth highest winning champion in regular play there has ever been, beating the previous champion Julie Collins' $428,100 total. Amodio has been climbing his way up the top ten charts since he began his winning streak weeks ago, putting him in the conversation alongside acclaimed "Jeopardy!" champions like Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer

In fact, his win from last Friday earned him another spot in a top 5 record-holding category. Amodio is now fifth for the most consecutive wins and he shows no signs of stopping. However, he’s still got a long way to go if he’s planning to unseat current first-place winner Ken Jennings, whose winning streak of 74 games and $2,520,700 total winnings is still the massive score to beat.

One accolade that Amodio has over every other contestant in the "Jeopardy!" hall of fame, though, is the fact that his winning streak has taken him through gameplay with three different hosts, more than any other champion from the time when Alex Trebek was the only name in hosting.

After getting his start under guest host Robin Roberts, Amodio stuck around for the entirety of LeVar Burton’s run and wrapped things up with David Faber last week. On Monday, he began his first series of games under a fourth guest host, Joe Buck, who kicked off a week-long term as the man behind the podium on "Jeopardy!" as the popular game show continues to search for a permanent replacement for Trebek.

The longtime host died in November of 2020 after a lengthy battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Recent rumors have indicated that executive producer Mike Richards is the likely front runner to take over the show next season as its new permanent trivia master after close to a year with a revolving door of guest hosts doing the duty.
