“One of the finest Final Jeopardy players I’ve ever seen on this stage,” presenter Ken Jennings said of Amy Schneider. “Remarkable.”
Amy Schneider, a Dayton native, returned to “Jeopardy” on December 20 and resumed her winning streak. She has a total of $571,200 after 14 days.
During the conversation, she disclosed that she has a tattoo of Ozma of Oz, a fictitious figure who didn’t appear in L. Frank Baum’s original novel “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” but did appear in the sequels.
Schneider is the fourth highest-earning champion in regular-season play.
“Her narrative was that she was the heir to the kingdom, but she was abducted as an infant, charmed by a wicked sorceress, and reared as a male,” she explained. “The enchantment is lifted at the end of the first sequel, and she is shown to be the lovely princess she has always been. That, too, seemed to be my tale.”
She can be seen on “Jeopardy!” weeknights at 7:30 on WDTN Channel 2.
