Collins extends ‘Jeopardy!’ streak
LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Jeopardy!” champion Julia Collins is keeping her winning streak alive.
Collins scored her 19th consecutive victory during Thursday’s contest. That puts her in a second-place tie for most consecutive non-tournament wins.
She shares the No. 2 spot with Season 22 contestant David Madden. The top “Jeopardy!” player is Ken Jennings, who won 74 straight games in Season 21 for a total of $2.5 million.
The 31-year-old Collins’ latest victory pushed her cash prize total to $410,000.
The Chicago-area resident already has set another record: She’s won more games and more money than any other female contestant.
