'Jeopardy' Host Alex Trebek Shares Health Update with Fans Amid Cancer Battle

'Jeopardy' Host Alex Trebek Shares Health Update with Fans Amid Cancer Battle”

As previously reported, Jeopardy! is not the first game show that Holzhauer-who grew up in Naperville, Illinois-has appeared on.

A professional sports gambler from Las Vegas has broken his own single-episode winnings record on "Jeopardy!". The new record is a full $54,127 more than Roger Craig's $77,000 record that was set back in 2010.

In his earlier record-breaking win, Holzhauer bet a very specific amount in order to ensure his winnings would be $110,914 - his daughter's date of birth, November 9, 2014.

It was nearly 15 years ago, in the summer of 2004, that Ken Jennings began his Jeopardy winning streak.

In a press release, he explained his strategy: "When I watch at home, I always root for the contestants to bet big on Daily Doubles".

Jeopardy! viewers were thankful to hear from Trebek, although many of them said they were anxious about him when they saw the caption of the update video: "That's a wrap!" Truth told, I have to! It is distributed domestically by CBS Television Distribution and internationally by CBS Television International. "Is it too soon to start thinking about Ken Jennings comparisons?"

Holzhauer spoke with Vulture about his "strategically aggressive" game play.

Jennings has held his title of highest Jeopardy! winnings since 2004. According to the account, Trebek plans to concentrate on his health until Jeopardy Season 36 begins filming in July, with those episodes set to air in September.
