For the second night in a row, Jeopardy! featured a new returning champion. Here’s how things played out on tonight’s episode.

Camron Conners, a high school social studies teacher from Rancho San Margarita, California, entered Tuesday night’s game with a one-day total of $24,200. This came after Conners dominated the second half of Monday night’s game.

Tonight, his opponents included Mattea Roach, a tutor from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and Kathleen Snyder, a government contractor from Arlington, Virginia.

Camron Conners struggled out of the gate, answering four out of six questions incorrectly including the “Daily Double.” He finished the “Jeopardy” round with -$1,000. On the other hand, Mattea Roach answered 11 out of 12 questions right on the way to banking $4,600. In second was Kathleen Snyder with $2,400.

“Double Jeopardy!” saw all three contestants answer correctly on questions they buzzed in on. Conners only got to answer three, leaving him with $2,200. Roach remained in the lead with $18,000, followed by Snyder with $16,000.

Both Roach and Snyder answered “Final Jeopardy!” correctly. However, Roach wagered far more and it was enough to make her the new Jeopardy! champion.
