Who is Roger Craig? The Newest Jeopardy! Single-Day Record Holder

Move over, freakishly consistent Ken Jennings. On Jeopardy! last night, mild-mannered Roger Craig toppled Jennings' single-day earnings record of $75,000 with $77,000 in winnings. What, what! The 33-year-old graduate student locked down the record when he knew "the inspiration for this title object in a novel and a 1957 movie actually spanned the Mae Khlung River," was The Bridge on the River Kwai. Of course the two-day champion still has 72 more days to go before besting Jennings' overall winning streak, but fingers crossed. After the jump watch his completely benign celebration.
