Milan resident Stephanie Jass returned to the "Jeopardy!" Tournament of Champions Thursday night.

MLive reported that in her semifinal match on the show on Thursday, Feb. 21, the 42-year-old Adrian College professor lost to Colby Burnett, a high school world history teacher from Chicago.

Earlier in the tournament, Jass lost out during her first appearance, but did well enough to secure a wild-card spot in Thursday's semifinal round.

During a successful run last fall, Jass became the most successful female contestant in the history of the syndicated TV game show.
