Tonight, her competition featured Joey Lavarias, a bassoonist and graduate student from Greensboro, North Carolina, and Candace Orsetti, a writer and editor from Annapolis, Maryland.

Similar to Tuesday’s game, Wednesday saw Jackie Kelly get out to a big lead after the “Jeopardy!” round. The returning champion earned $14,600. In second place was Candace Orsetti with $2,800, followed by Joey Lavarias with $2,200.

While Lavarias closed the gap in “Double Jeopardy!,” he couldn’t make things competitive with Kelly. She finished the second round of questions with $23,000. Lavarias had $11,000 and Orsetti banked $4,000.

“Final Jeopardy!” saw only Kelly come up with the correct response, adding to her total. The North Carolina native won her fourth game in a row.
