LOS ANGELES The winning streak of standout Jeopardy! contestant Austin Rogers is at an end.
Rogers, a New York City bartender, lost narrowly on Thursdays show after a 12-game winning streak.
A Jeopardy! spokeswoman said Rogers $411,000 put him in fifth place in Jeopardy! all-time regular season winnings.
The new Jeopardy! champ is Scarlett Sims of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, who ended up with $51 more than Rogers $33,201 to his $33,150.
While Jeopardy! contestants are reliably serious, Rogers reveled in goofy antics and wisecracks.
Hell be back on the show next month, competing in the two-week Jeopardy! tournament of champions that begins Nov. 6.
