A Cincinnati man walked away with $29,000 after appearing on the hit show Jeopardy for two consecutive nights.

Gabe Gales, 30, a research analyst at Nielsen, came in first place on Wednesday evening after winning a whopping $27,950.

He failed to defend his title upon his return to the program on Thursday night, however, and dropped down to third place.

Still, he walked away with nearly $30K. Not bad for two days of work.

"It feels great," Gales said about his big win. He plans to use the money for a down payment on a house and wants to buy a boat.

His advice for other Jeopardy hopefuls? "Don't be nervous. Have fun."
