Jeopardy! kicked off the final week of July with a brand new episode. Here’s how things played out on Monday night.

Tonight’s new episode also gave the returning champion their first chance to defend their title. The champ looked to improve on the modest jackpot from the last game.

Who is the current Jeopardy! champion?

Karla Fossett, a content administrator from Saco, Maine, is the current Jeopardy! champion. After winning her first game, her earnings sit at $16,600.

Her opponents on Monday included Angela Xu, a corporate lawyer from San Mateo, California, and Ed Coulson, an economics and real estate professor from Dana Point, California.

It was a tight game after the “Jeopardy” round with all three players scoring well. Coulson led 2ith $5,000, followed by Xu with $3,600 and Fossett with $3,400.

Coulson extended the lead during the “Double Jeopardy!” round, finishing with $18,700. Xu stayed in second with $10,00, while Fossett trailed with $7,000.

“Final Jeopardy!” stumped all three players, so it all came down to wagers. Coulson bet the smallest amount and it paid off. He became the new Jeopardy! champion with $17,399.
