Danvers resident Michelle Leppert’s winning Final Jeopardy question was fitting for the huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan.

The Final Jeopardy answer was: “The corporate website for this product says it leaves its container at .028 miles per hour.”

Leppert, who watches the Steelers play at Heinz Field, wagered nearly her entire $12,400 and gave the correct question: “What is Heinz Ketchup?”

Leppert, who works as a senior managing editor for HCPro on Sylvan Street, finished with $24,700 and will be on "Jeopardy!" again. The issue for Boston viewers is "Jeopardy!" isn’t on at the normal time on Tuesday. CBSBoston is showing a Boston Marathon special between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

The next "Jeopardy!" episode will be shown in the Boston area at 2 a.m. Wednesday so you’ll need to stay up late or DVR to see if Leppert continues on.
