Hey Jeopardy fans! The story this week is not about guest host LeVar Burton, but about the current winning contestant. Yesterday Matt Amodio took home $74,000, bringing his total prize money to $268,800! He has won over a quarter of a million dollars! That lands Amodio at #9 on the all-time winnings list of "Jeopardy!" regular-season play.
Matt, from New Haven, Connecticut, is a student at Yale studying for a Computer Science Ph.D., and said he grew up watching "Jeopardy" every night with his family. And he's still going strong..
