Cindy Stowell died last week at 41. In August, the Stage IV cancer patient competed on Jeopardy!
The Austin, Texas, resident may have passed away before her episode aired on Tuesday, but she did win $22,801, defeating a seven-day champ.
The episode otherwise aired without any alterations or in-show tribute today. According to Mashable, Stowell planned to donate her winnings to cancer research.
During the taping only host Alex Trebek and a select cluster of staffers knew she was terminally ill—that means her opponents did not take it easy on her.
The show did post a tribute to Stowell online, in which Trebek writes: “Competing on Jeopardy! was a lifelong dream for Cindy, and we’re glad she was able to do so… Our condolences and best wishes to her family and friends.”
