The game show is one of the longest-running and critically acclaimed competitions that has been prevalent on television for decades. The original edition, created by Merv and Julann Griffin, was launched in 1964 and aired until 1975. The show returned in 1984 and is still running successfully.

In the June 17 episode, Megan, an attorney from Berkeley, California, was up against Molly Fleming, a community organizer from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Sadie Goldberger, an interpreter from Columbia, Maryland.

Today’s Jeopardy! winner, Megan Wachspress

Megan Wachspress’ intelligence and luck worked once again as the 3-day winner emerged as champion in the latest episode as well.

The first round’s categories of the June 17 episode were Historic Alliances, Wordplay-Pourri, Home Sweet Home Renovation, Think Pink, Stately Rivers, Pop Rocks. The game had a slow start today with Sadie in the lead with $4,600 in her pocket. Megan came in second place earning $2,000, while Molly’s score went in negative (-$400).

The categories of The Double Jeopardy round included Sci-Fi Characters, His Widow Lived On, Marine Biology, The “IT” Department, The Quotable Movie, Such a Peasant Life. Sadie was leading again as her total score by the second round was $9,800, while Megan banked $9,200. Molly couldn’t match up to her fellow competitors as her total earnings was $3,300.

Since the beginning of Megan’s winning streak, her fate has changed in the Final Jeopardy round. In today’s episode, Sadie answered incorrectly in the final round, thus, lost $7,500 in bet. Subsequently, her total came down to $2,300. Megan and Molly, on the other hand, answered correctly, however, the latter’s total amount was quite low. Thus, Megan Wachspress won Jeopardy! today.

The category for the latest episode’s final round was “19th Century Contemporaries,” and the clue was:

“Congratulating her on the 1869 release of her biography, Frederick Douglass wrote, ‘I have wrought in the day –you in the night.’”

The correct answer was Harriet Tubman.

While Megan Wachspress and Molly Fleming answered correctly, Sadie Goldberger lost only because of the wrong spelling. The latter wrote Harriett Tubma.
