LANSING, Mich. — A Lansing woman has lost her Jeopardy! crown after coming in second place during Wednesday's episode.

A Lansing woman has checked one thing off of her bucket list, being on Jeopardy. Wednesday night Robin Miner-Swartz competed for her third night on the show.

She made her first appearance during Monday night's episode.

On Wednesday night's episode, Miner-Swartz went up against two new opponents to try and hold on to her title.

When it came to the Final Jeopardy! question, Miner-Swartz was one of two contestants that got the answer correct.

The Final Jeopardy! question was: "Founded by students at W&M in 1776; its members include 17 U.S. Presidents, 41 Supreme Court Justices & more than 140 Nobel Laureates."

The correct answer was Phi Beta Kappa.

Even with the correct answer, Miner-Swartz came in second place earning $2,000 for the night.

Including her totals from her previous winnings, Miner-Swartz ended her Jeopardy! winning streak with a little more than $29,000.
