“Jeopardy!” champions for $2,000, please.

Clue: Julia Collins was awarded this honor Friday night.

Answer: What is the No. 2 spot for the longest-running winning streak since Ken Jenning’s 74-game stretch?


The 31-year-old Chicago-area resident made “Jeopardy!” history when she won her 20th consecutive game, bringing her cash prize total to more than $420,000. She has now won more money and more games than any other woman contestant on the show.  

The internet went crazy for Collins after her win. 

Not only is she wicked smart, but she can also, apparently, predict the future. In her 8th grade yearbook, Collins said she wrote that she would become a "Jeopardy!" champion. “I was a pretty nerdy kid,” Collins told ABC news. “I liked to shout out the answers to the TV like everybody else does.”

Collins began tapping the show in January and has since quit her job where she worked as a business consultant. She claims it was because she couldn’t stop talking about her time on the show, something she was prohibited from doing.

Well, winning more than $420,000 in 20 days is certainly something to brag about at the office.

To girls who feel like they need to dumb themselves down, she offers this piece of advice: “If someone doesn’t like you because you’re smart, that’s their problem.”
