What is more than a half-million dollars?

That's how much cash a Utah man has claimed as the new Jeopardy! king.

Ken Jennings racked up $512,959 during a dominating 16-show run on the quiz show.

Jennings was seen on his 16th straight Jeopardy! episode today.

The 30-year-old software engineer broke the Jeopardy! record early in his run. The previous mark was nearly $185,000 over seven days.

Jennings is no stranger to the world of quick quiz.

He was a member of Brigham Young University's successful College Bowl team in the 1990s. And he also edits literature and mythology questions for the National Academic Quiz Tournament.
