Margaret Shelton used her experience to her advantage during the “Jeopardy!” round. She finished in first place with $7,200. In second place was Caitlin McHale with $3,600 followed by Adrian Alcalá in third with $2,200.

Shelton made the game into a runaway during “Double Jeopardy!.” After the second round, she banked $24,00. Her competition wasn’t close, as McHale netted $5,600 and Alcalá earned $4,600.

The champ was able to coast into “Final Jeopardy!” with a comfortable lead. However, the question was anything but easy as all three contestants answered incorrectly.

Despite the wrong response, Shelton won the game with a total of $21,500. That brings her four-day cash winnings to $79,700.
