The copy editor from New Hampshire only extended her lead in the “Double Jeopardy!” round. Going a perfect 15 for 15, Bekkerman totaled $28,000.

Amy Bekkerman answered correctly, but that wasn’t the story for her opponents. Simi Landau guessed “What is hurricane?” while Ariel San Jose could only come up with “What is surprise?,” giving Bekkerman the victory.
