LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Jeopardy!" champion Julia Collins is keeping her winning streak alive.

The TV game show says Collins scored her 19th consecutive victory on Thursday's contest. That puts her in a second-place tie for most consecutive non-tournament wins.

She shares the No. 2 spot with season 22 contestant David Madden. The top "Jeopardy!" player is Ken Jennings, who won 74 straight games in season 21 for a total of $2.5 million.

The 31-year-old Collins' latest victory pushed her cash prize total to $410,000.

The Chicago-area resident already has set another record: She's won more games and more money than any other female contestant.

Collins began taping her "Jeopardy!" appearances in January but remained mum about the outcome -- although she did quit her business consultant job.
