Young pulled out ahead of her competitors by sweeping the literature category, eventually going on to win the competition. “Good Morning America” chief meteorologist Ginger Zee placed second, and comedian Josh Gad finished finished third, each winning $10,000 for their charities, Susan G. Komen West Michigan and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, respectively.
