The Chaminade-Julienne graduate is the fourth highest-earning champion in regular-season play.

She also joins David Madden and Jason Zuffranieri for winning 19 games.

Schneider also apparently has a new favorite amount to wager on Daily Doubles. On Monday, instead of her usual $4,000, she wagered $6,000 on her third Daily Double and also for the Final Jeopardy!.

She can be seen on “Jeopardy!” weeknights at 7:30 on WDTN Channel 2.
