LOS ANGELES — The profitable streak of standout “Jeopardy!” contestant Austin Rogers is at an finish.
Rogers, a New York Metropolis bartender, misplaced narrowly on Thursday’s present after a 12-recreation profitable streak.
A “Jeopardy!” spokeswoman stated Rogers’ $411,000 put him in fifth place in “Jeopardy!” all-time common season winnings.
The brand new “Jeopardy!” champ is Scarlett Sims of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, who ended up with $fifty one greater than Rogers — $33,201 to his $33,one hundred fifty.
Whereas “Jeopardy!” contestants are reliably critical, Rogers reveled in goofy antics and wisecracks.
He’ll be again on the present subsequent month, competing within the two-week “Jeopardy!” event of champions that begins Nov. 6.
