In theory, the most that can be won on a single episode of Jeopardy is $566400 by the following calculations:

The most that can be earned in the Jeopardy round is $35600 if the following criteria are met: All squares are answered correctly by the same person and the Daily Double is found on the last square opened which would have to be a $200 square. Therefore, you would have $17800 before the Jeopardy round Daily Double appeared. Wagering everything and answering it correctly would yield $35600 at the end of the first round.

In the Double Jeopardy round, that same contestant must answer all questions correctly before finding the two Daily Doubles which would have to be under two of the $400 squares. Answering all questions correctly prior to the two Daily Doubles would yield an additional $35200. Add that to the $35600 earnings from the first round and you would have $70800 before answering the two Daily Doubles in the Double Jeopardy round.

Wagering everything on the first Daily Double and answering correctly yields $14600. Repeating the process on the second Daily Double yields $283200 going into Final Jeopardy. Wagering everything in Final Jeopardy and answering correctly would yield $566400!
