'Jeopardy!' champion Matt Amodio becomes third highest-winning contestant

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- "Jeopardy!" champion Matt Amodio shows no signs of slowing down.

After Thursday night's win, his total earnings surpassed $547,000.

The cash total puts him at number three for top winners in regular season play, behind Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer.

They both won more than $2 million each, so Amodio still has a long way to go.

He's currently on a 17-day win streak. 

You can watch "Jeopardy!" every weeknight at 6 p.m. on CBS 58.
