In a thrilling conclusion to the Jeopardy! Invitational Tournament, Victoria Groce, a writer and television personality from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, emerged as the champion.

Both Schneider and He were seeking their first win in the final, while Groce had the opportunity to clinch the title with a victory in this game.

The categories in the Jeopardy! round included Word Cities, Van Life, and Literary Lines, among others. Groce took an early lead, finishing the round with a score of 2,600, just ahead of Schneider at 3,400 and He at 1,400.

The game witnessed a surprising turn of events as all three Daily Doubles were missed. Groce and Schneider, both confident players, took substantial risks by wagering high amounts, only to provide incorrect responses. This resulted in a tight competition heading into Final Jeopardy!, with Groce in the lead at 11,400, followed closely by He at 10,000, and Schneider at 7,200.

The Final Jeopardy! category, Bodies of Water, proved to be a decisive round. All three contestants provided the correct response, What is the Sea of Marmara?, to the clue about the smallest inland sea in the world. Groce strategically wagered 8,601, bringing her total score to 20,001 and securing her victory. He finished in second place with a score of 14,401, while Schneider took third place with 8,600.
