A day after winning by $18 for his 18th win — probably just a coincidence for Jeopardy James — the cyborg got back on a hot streak by destroying Jason and Libby in one of his biggest lopsided victories for his 19th win and $96,726 more to his pile of cash that now totals $1,426,330.
Keep in mind that Ken Jennings won 74-straight (all-time record) back in 2004 and $2,520,700 during that streak. I’m not a math major, but it would seem like Jeopardy James could smash that in 12 or so more wins at his current pace of putting up somewhere in the $100k range. OK, so say James crushes Jennings in 15 or so more games. Just think of what his total will be if this goes on all summer.

Not a bad day at the office for Jeopardy James:
Ok Jeopardy James wasn’t playing around tonight. Not bad for about 25 minutes of work… pic.twitter.com/GiAopD8n0w
