Amy Schneider stunned audiences left and right with her ability to answer even the hardest of “Jeopardy!” questions. But she, like everyone else, still finds herself worrying from time to time.
Schneider admits USA Today that she knew she was in danger of losing to her competitor, Rhone Talsma, a Chicago librarian, when Talsma doubled their earnings to the Daily Double! Talsma eventually defeated Schneider in Final Jeopardy!, an area that Schneider admits has struggled in recent times.
Previously “Jeopardy!” winner Jennings happened to host that night and told the audience “Anything can happen on ‘Jeopardy!'” Jennings later tweeted a photo of himself with Schneider, writing, “Of all the goodies of Jeopardy!, I’ve never seen anyone play the game with the unappealing sense of ease Amy Schneider always seems to have.” Jennings added in a second tweet, “Of course I’m dazzled by her talent, but also by the way she’s always been so confident and outspoken when her show airs. What a treat. a champion!”
Schneider, of course, will have his own chance to facing Jennings in the program’s “Tournament of Champions”.
