“Jeopardy” Champ James Holzhauer Already Giving Away Some Of His $1.9 Million Winnings
James Holzhauer already giving back before his history making run on Jeopardy is over.
Jeopardy champ James Holzhauer has done it again.
He won Wednesday night, raking in $71,885.
He’s well on his way to beating current all-time champ Ken Jennings’ grand total.
With 25 consecutive wins, he’s a third of the way to beating Jennings 74-game win streak.
The professional Las Vegas gambler comes with an aggressive style that has some people rooting for him.
For some, he’s the champ to root against.
But everyone can cheer the news that Holzhauer is already donating some of his $1,939,027 prize money to charity.
That’s where the Holzhauers live.
