Heading into final Jeopardy! Schneider was leading Talsma by $27,600 to $17,600. The category was "Countries of the World."

The prompt asked the contestants which is the only nation that ends its English spelling with an "h" and is also among the world's top 10 most populous countries.

The answer was Bangladesh, which Talsma answered correctly as he wagered $12,000. Schneider came up blank, costing her $8,000.

The final score at the end of the game was $29,600 to $19,600.

Talsma will appear on Thursday's show officially as a returning champion.
