Jeopardy! fans are still getting used to seeing a game without Mattea Roach. Instead, it has been Danielle Maurer as the returning champion. So, how did she do on Tuesday night?

Maurer, a digital marketing manager from Peachtree Corners, Georgia, defeated Roach last Friday. She followed that up with another victory on Monday night, bringing her two-day total to $27,999.

On Tuesday, she faced off against Cherry Ignacio, a software product manager from Maryland Heights, Missouri, and Mallory Kass, a children’s book editor from Brooklyn, New York.
