Matt Amodio’s $1.5 million ‘Jeopardy!’ run finally ends at 38 wins

Matt Amodio’s historic run on “Jeopardy!” came to an end on Monday. Amodio’s 38 consecutive wins is second only to contestant Ken Jennings 74-game win streak in 2004. Despite losing, Amodio made quite a name for himself during his impressive run.

Heading into Final Jeopardy!, Amodio found himself in third place for the first time during his historic run. He incorrectly answered the Final Jeopardy! clue while contestant Jonathon Fisher answered correctly and was crowned the new champion.

While some viewers were happy to see the former champ leave, most fans appreciated the incredible gamesmanship he showed. In the end Amodio went home with a little over $1.5 million.
