NEW YORK — There’s no truth to the rumor that James Holzhauer is a cyborg created to be the perfect “Jeopardy!” contestant.
It sometimes seems that way, given how he’s made a level of excellence rarely seen on the television quiz show appear almost mundane. On his 14th appearance Tuesday, Hozhauer eclipsed the $1 million mark in winnings.
By winning $131,127 on a single show, he shattered the program’s previous one-day record, which was $77,000 before he started. He already has the top five one-day scores in the history of a game show that has aired regularly since 1984.
