A "Jeopardy!" episode that aired Tuesday featured a 26-year-old Atlanta resident — and she won.

Lindsay Resnick, 26, accumulated $10,001 during the quiz competition. She'll appear on the 7:30 p.m. show again Wednesday as the returning champion, competing against university administrator Gilbert Collins from New Jersey and editor Flora Leen from California.

Resnick’s fun fact was that she was born on the same day as her mother, Feb. 18.

The Brookwood resident said she has graduated from Centennial High School, Georgia Tech and Georgia State University.
