The 34-year-old Holzhauer admitted he didn't attend many of his classes.  In reality he did finish with a a bachelor's degree in mathematics[

Again Monday night the sixth highest-earning American game show contestant of all time continued to roll over his fellow Jeopardy contestants, including a professor.

Holzhauer, who has been on a two-week hiatus during Jeopardy's Teacher's Tournament, is the second-highest overall winning Jeopardy! contestant (behind Ken Jennings), and the second Jeopardy! millionaire in regular game (non-tournament) winnings, behind only Jennings ($2,522,700 in 75 episodes in 2004).
