TAMPA, Fla. — Long-running "Jeopardy!" champion Matt Amodio is returning to the stage next week to kick off another season.

On Monday, Sep. 13, America's favorite game show returns for season 38. Amodio will be attempting to win his 19th straight game that day. So far, he's won $574,801 over the course of 18 games.

Amodia is currently third all-time on the show's highest winning list. He sits behind two of the gameshow's legends, James Holzhauer who has won $2,462,216 and Ken Jennings who has won $2,520,700.

The show's now-former host Mike Richards will be hosting the first week of the new season due to the fact that episodes were taped prior to him quitting the show over past controversial comments.
