After a bit of a scare on Thursday (May 23) night, James Holzhauer was back to dominating the competition on Jeopardy!. On Friday night, Holzhauer cruised to his 27th victory adding another $74,400 to his impressive total of $2,065,535. He even set a new record by winning $24,600 in the first round.

With the win, Holzhauer has become just the second person ever to win over $2 million on the popular quiz show. Ken Jennings won a grand total of $2,520,700 during his record 74-game winning streak in 2004.

Holzhauer, who already owns the record for most money won in a single episode, is on pace to shatter Jennings' total in about half the time.

Holzhauer will be back at it again on Monday when he goes for his 28th victory.
