AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) — The last time Pam Sung was on Jeopardy, the Roswell physician-scientist was stumped by a question pertaining to geography.

But Wednesday night, Sung pulled out a win. As part of the “Second Chance Tournament,” Sung correctly answered a Final Jeopardy question pertaining to the subject of a summer blockbuster — Robert J. Oppenheimer.

Now, Sung moves on to more competitions set to air Thursday and Friday night. The winner of Thursday and Friday night’s games goes on to a new tournament called the “Champions Wild Card” — a tournament of one to four winners who did not qualify outright for the “Tournament of Champions,” Sung says.

The winner of the “Champions Wild Card” then goes on to the “Tournament of Champions.”

For Sung, competing on Jeopardy! was a lifelong dream, and this time around, it was a little more relaxed than her first appearance in 2021. Read more about that here.
