The professional sports player rejoiced the audience at the Gameshow after winning for the 14th time on Tuesday.
Holzhauer won $ 118,816 in the game, which aired on Tuesday. He earned a total income of $ 1,061,554 from Alex Trebek's show. He is the second person in the show's history to earn more than $ 1 million in the regular season.
"Despite what The Social Network says, $ 1 million felt really cool," Holzhauer said in a statement.
The only other candidate to win over $ 1 million in regular season games is Ken Jennings, whose 74-game series earned him $ 2,520,700.
Holzhauer's victory in his 1
4th game also means he is now in fourth place of the all-time "Jeopardy!" Consecutive winning list.
The 34-year-old from Las Vegas made history for the first time after breaking the record for the day's cash gain on the show. Then he broke his own record.
Holzhauer owes part of his success to the use of a controversial method known as "Forrest Bounce". The competitor jumps from category to category and chooses stones out of action to drop his opponents.
Holzhauer's next game will be shown on Wednesday.
