Jennings holds the record for the longest winning streak on Jeopardy! with 74 wins. His total earnings on Jeopardy! are $4.5 million, consisting of $2.5 million over his 74 wins on the show.
In early 2020, Jennings, along with famous Jeopardy! contestants Brad Rutter and James Holzhauer, returned to play in a tournament to determine the greatest player of all time. Jennings went on to win the championship, with a first-place prize of $1 million.
