Over the past few days, Jeopardy! champions have struggled to string together victories. Did that trend change on Thursday night’s episode?

Tonight’s returning champion was Katie Hargrove, a personal assistant and writer from Redondo Beach, California. She won $17,201 the night before, proving she was a formidable Jeopardy! player.

Her challengers tonight included Joel Levinson, a head of content from Yellow Springs, Ohio, and Finn Corrigan, a student from Vista, California.

The “Jeopardy!” round finished with all three contestants banking similar totals. Finn Corrigan had an early lead with $4,000 followed by Katie Hargrove at $3,400 and Joel Levinson at $2,000.

Corrigan remained in the driver’s seat after “Double Jeopardy!” ended. He totaled $10,800, but Hargrove was close behind with $9,800. Unfortunately, Levinson couldn’t keep pace and entered “Final Jeopardy!” with only $2,400.

In “Final Jeopardy!,” both Corrigan and Hargrove answered correctly. A bold wager from Corrigan gave the student from Vista, California the victory and ensured Hargrove was a one-and-done champion.
