Cris from Ocean City’s Jeopardy! Win Streak By the Numbers
By now you have probably heard quite a bit about Chris Panullo from Ocean City, who became a Jeopardy! ten-time champion on Thursday night.
But, let's recap.
Pannullo works as a customer success operations manager.
Pannullo’s girlfriend of ten years, Heather, was the one who encouraged him to apply for Jeopardy!
When Pannullo was asked on the show what he planned to do with his winnings he quipped, “In this economy, Ken, I’m just throwing it all under my mattress. The hard part is going to be getting it all flat, so I’m not laying on a lumpy mattress. But with some time, I’ll get it done."
In his stay on Jeopardy, Cris has been extremely dominant over nine victories, averaging nearly $35,000 over his first nine victories.
Chris Pannullo has appeared on a televised quiz show before, but not with as much success. In 2018, Pannullo appeared on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" He left with $5,000 after missing a $7,000 question.
