LOS ANGELES -- The reign of the winningest female contestant in "Jeopardy!" history has come to an end.
The game show says Julia Collins lost during her 21st appearance on the pre-taped episode that aired Monday.
The 31-year-old Chicago-area resident accumulated a total of $428,100 during her 20 victories on the syndicated series.
She holds the No. 2 spot for most consecutive wins behind all-time "Jeopardy!" champ Ken Jennings. He won 74 straight games in season 21 for a total prize of $2.5 million.
Collins is the third-highest money winner for non-tournament play on "Jeopardy!" behind Jennings and Dave Madden, who won $430,400.
Collins will be back for the "Jeopardy!" tournament of champions next season.
She lost on Monday's show to Brian Loughnane of Massachusetts.
