 Diane Peloquin last night earned  $15,700 to win the night. The Law and social work graduate student unseated  Arthur Chu who had been reigning champion for 12, days. Last night he earned no money and finished in last place.  

The 30-year old Ohio man had unsettled "Jeopardy" traditionalists by aggressively hopping all over the question board instead of closing it out category-by-category. Chu's total take was over $297,000.   — David Fair is the News Director and host of Morning Edition for 89.1 WEMU News. Contact him at 734.487.3363 or email him dfair@emich.edu. @DavidFairWEMU on Twitter
