(KSL News) -- A Utah man is making quite a name for himself on the televised game show Jeopardy!

Ken Jennings, a software engineer from Murray, will make his tenth appearance on the show tonight. He is currently Jeopardy's longest running, undefeated champion. And he has already won more than $291,000.

That's more than anyone has ever won on Jeopardy. Still, even with all of his success, Jennings remains very humble.

Ken Jennings, Reigning Jeopardy Champion: "Win or lose, money or no money, I'd make sure you have a lot of fun and it's just great to be there on the set and see all the stuff you see at home."

After Jennings is done with Jeopardy he plans to take his wife on a vacation to Europe. And he says he'll probably invest - much of his remaining fortune.
