The show also released a video of Stowell talking about her experience.

Her loss ended a six-game winning streak.

The Final Jeopardy clue, in the category "Little Countries", was this: "It's the closest nation to the mainland US where cars customarily drive on the left".

On Monday's show Bill correctly answered questions ranging from the XYZ Affair to Model T's.

While Stowell had the correct response - The Bahamas - so did leader Sam Scovill, who won the game and $22,001.

Alex Trebek and the folks behind Jeopardy have paid special tribute to a special contestant.

That's because the contestant was suffering from Stage 4 colon cancer when she recorded the episodes in August and September, pumped up with painkillers and at one point developing a fever that reduced her voice nearly to a whisper. "So for all of us here at Jeopardy, our honest condolences to her family and her friends", Trebek said in his goodbye. "Her brother added, "'Jeopardy!' was not my thing.

In the end, Stowell's achievements would have been impressive even if she had not had cancer, given that she won six separate shows and earned more than $100,000 during her time on the show.

"I think everyone's who been on can agree that just competing takes a lot of mental strength", she said. "Clearly, she achieved that".

Hess also revealed Stowell's biggest concern heading to the podium - which reared its head in her final round. Before the audition, Stowell reached out to a producer to ask how long it might be before she taped her episode because she didn't have long to live.

Stowell continued: "The doctor's best guess is about 6 months". "If it is unlikely that the turnaround time would be that quick, then I'd like to give up my tryout spot to someone else".

Americans gathered around their televisions last night to root for a quiz show contestant who died two weeks ago. Only Trebek and a select group of staff members knew Stowell had cancer during the taping. "That was hers from as long as I can remember".

Stowell's run on the beloved 33-year-old show put her among the year's top performers.

Stowell battled a blood infection and a high-grade fever throughout the tapings in August and September, but still managed to win $105,803.

So did other Jeopardy champions, the Times says.
