“You know, it isn’t every day where one player has a $30,000 lead going into Final Jeopardy! but it’s the world we’re living in,” Jennings said. “Amy Schneider ran three categories in today’s game and gave 40 correct responses. Very impressive.”
In Final Jeopardy!, the clue in the category of Awards Around the World: “France’s national theater award, it’s named for a man who died in Paris in 1673.” The correct response was Moliere, the playwright of “Tartuffe,” “The Miser,” “The Misanthrope” and others. Schneider incorrectly answered Voltaire, the author of such classics as “Candide.” She wagered big with $20,000, leaving her with $15,400 for the episode.
“The streak continues at least for one more day,” Jennings said.
Schneider can be seen on “Jeopardy!” weeknights at 7:30 p.m. on WDTN Channel 2.
