Julia Collins Dethroned As 'Jeopardy!' Champ

The pressure was on Julia Collins as Jeopardy!'s all-time winning woman. With more than $428,000 in prize money, she fought to keep her winning streak alive! Could she do it?

Alex Trebek said the clue, "The category is Oscar-winning writers. Here's the clue. Winning for 1999, this New England writer is the last person to win an Oscar for adapting his own novel."

Collins’ answer was, “Who is Michael Chabon?” That was incorrect.

Another contestant got the right answer, which was "Who is John Irving?," and became the new champ.

Trebek said, "We're going to miss Julia Collins, she's going away with $428,000! Well done, young lady!"
