Tulsan Joshua Brakhage ran away with Wednesday's broadcast of "Jeopardy!," leading after the first and second rounds.
Brakhage, a graduate of Oklahoma Union High School in South Coffeyville and the University of Tulsa, extended his lead in Double Jeopardy by answering a Daily Double worth $3,200: "This small emirate is nestled between Iraq and Saudi Arabia." (What is Kuwait?)
Brakhage, an executive producer for KOTV, had $19,000 leading into Final Jeopardy, while the other two contestants had $2,400 and $1,000.
Final Jeopardy was "The first of Jane Austen's 6 novels to be published in her lifetime, its title is last alphabetically." After correctly answering "What is Sense and Sensibility?" and wagering $1,006, Brakhage ended with $20,006.
Brakhage will appear again on "Jeopardy!" at 4:30 p.m. Thursday on KTUL, channel 8.
