Holzhauer's latest victory brings his total winnings from Jeopardy! to $244,000, The Associated Press reported.

In Tuesday's episode, Holzhauer entered the final round with a total of $72,600, betting $38,314.

Before Craig, "Jeopardy" star Ken Jennings held the highest amount won in a single show with $74,000.

He also offered a "Happy Birthday Booger" comment with his correct Final Jeopardy response.
