Cleveland Librarian Wins 'Jeopardy!' Again Last Night

Bringing her two-day total winnings to $28,602, Cleveland librarian Maryann Penzvalto once again took down her competition on the quiz show Jeopardy!

Up by a mere $3,200 going into the Final Jeopardy question last night, Penzvalto didn't let anything phase her.

"A 1931 story in the New Yorker said this 'weighs 600,000,000 pounds (&)…contains 37,000,000 cubic feet,'" host Alex Trebek read aloud.

Penzvalto correctly answered/questioned with "What is the Empire State Building?" to take home the final prize of Tuesday evening, beating out an editor and a doctor.

The librarian, who works for the Cuyahoga County Public Library system, is back in action tonight at 7:30 p.m. Watch Penzvalto show off her pop-culture knowledge below:
