The "Jeopardy!" winning streak of Pound Ridge native Austin Rogers is at an end.
Rogers, who grew up on the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, lost narrowly on Thursday's show after a 12-game winning streak where he became a national sensation for his quirky personality.
A "Jeopardy!" spokeswoman said Rogers' $411,000 put him in fifth place in "Jeopardy!" all-time regular season winnings.
The new "Jeopardy!" champ is Scarlett Sims, of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, who ended up with $51 more than Rogers - $33,201 to his $33,150.
While "Jeopardy!" contestants are reliably serious, Rogers reveled in goofy antics and wisecracks.
He'll be back on the show next month, competing in the two-week "Jeopardy!" tournament of champions that begins Nov. 6.
