(UPDATE) Allison proved to be a strong player, as she had a commanding lead toward the end of the Double Jeopardy round.

At one point, Allison was leading Suresh with a score of $13,800 to $0 - but Suresh began climbing back and made a true "Daily Double" wager that put him within striking distance.

The Final Jeopardy clue was in the category Business History: "What is dubbed 'the world’s first initial public offering' took place in 1602 in this current European capital."

Only Suresh answered correctly (Amsterdam), adding $4,300 to win his third game with $17,100.

Allison finished with $8,399 to earn second place; the other contestant (David) finished with $200.

(1st REPORT) Allison Strekal of Missoula will be featured on "Jeopardy!" on Thursday, June 8, 2023.

Strekal, a non-profit development director, will be competing against two-day champion Suresh Krishnan and fellow challenger David Ford.

The popular quiz show will air on KRTV at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
