TV Game Show Contestant
    (circa 1957- )
    Resides in Ventura, California
    Beat Ken Jennings on Jeopardy (November 30, 2004)
    She was a failed actress.
    She looks like 'Lost in Space'/'Make Room for Daddy' actress Angela Cartwright.
    She got lucky when Ken Jennings lost $10,200 on daily doubles before going into final Jeopardy.
    She trailed Ken Jennings going into final jeopardy, who had $14,400 while she had $10,000.
    The game was actually played in September but not aired until the last day of November.
    She came in third on the next game with just $2.
    She flew to China to adopt a 14 month old daughter (1997).
    She stopped Ken Jennings' win streak at 74 games and $2.5 million.
    Ken Jennings said: 'It was a big relief to me that I lost to someone who played a better game than me.'
    Her own eight year old daughter asked for her autograph.
    Before the game she thought 'Someone's got to beat him sometime, it might as well be me.'
    She bet just enough money to go ahead of Ken Jennings by $1 in final Jeopardy, which assure her a win if he did not give the correct answer. He didn't and she won.
    She also beat the third opponent, David Hankins who finished in negative money.

    Ken Jennings' incorrect response 'What is Federal Express?' bet 5,601 or $14,400 to finish at $8,799.
