After knocking off the 12-time reigning Jeopardy! champion on Thursday, Scarlett Sims's run on the show came to an end Friday.

Sims, of Oak Ridge, won $33,000 on Thursday's show. She missed the Final Jeopardy question Friday, ending the second night with $400.

But she got to accomplish a life-long dream along the way. During an interview on WBIR's Live at Five at Four, Sims said she has wanted to be on Jeopardy since she watched the show as a child.

Sims said she plans to donate part of her winnings to Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.

"I think that's just a great cause for early literacy," she said.
