It’s also worth noting


That for most of the history of the show, a contestant would be “retired” after 5 victories. So there may have been other Ken Jennings’ of James Holzhauer’s over the decades, but they never be became a household name because being one of countless contestants that won 5 in a row doesn’t get you the same attention as winning 30+ games in a row. And it certainly doesn’t get you into $1 mil+ prize money territory.
