UPDATE: Suresh Krishnan came from behind to win Monday’s episode as well, making him a five-day champion now.

Atlanta, GA, June 13, 2023: Suresh Krishnan, a networking engineer from Suwanee, Georgia is now a four-game Jeopardy! champion with a total of $53,999 in winnings.

Krishnan secured his fourth consecutive victory in a runaway game against Vicky Cyr, a retired postmaster from Minneapolis and Tim Hagood, a communications consultant from Washington, D.C., said a press release from the popular game show.

Krishnan told Jeopardy! he began his journey to go from a “living room contestant” who would often yell out responses while playing along at home to an actual contender on the Alex Trebek Stage three years ago. And when he finally got the call to be on the show, he set out with hopes of accomplishing one thing — winning his first game.

Krishnan achieved more than that on Tuesday when he took down three-game winner Jared Watson.

“My goal [was] to win a day, so I could be a Jeopardy! champion,” Suresh said, reflecting on his first game. “So, I’m really, really surprised and super happy to be a four-day champ.”

As a four-game champion with $53,999 in the bank, Suresh is in the running to compete in the next Tournament of Champions.
