David Madden

Hi Jersey, I'm David Madden from Ridgewood. Watch me make our much-maligned state proud on Jeopardy!

2024 Jeopardy! Invitational Tournament semifinalist: $10,000.
2019 All-Star Games member of winning Team Brad: a share of $1,000,000 split three ways with Brad Rutter and Larissa Kelly.
2006 Tournament of Champions semifinalist: $10,000.
Season 21/22 19-time champion: $430,400 + $2,000.

David's 19-win streak was, at the time, the second-longest in Jeopardy! history after that of Ken Jennings (74 wins, $2,520,700). David's performance in terms of number of wins was surpassed by the 20-win run of Julia Collins in Season 30, but with winnings of $428,100, Julia did not top David's $430,400 cash winnings.

During David's Jeopardy! run, he resided in Berlin, Germany as a student pursuing a master's degree in international relations.
