Amy's run is over
Well, Jeopardy! fans, Amy Schneider's remarkable 40-game win streak came to an end, but not before she became the second-longest consecutive winner in the history of the popular game show. The only contestant with more victories is Ken Jennings with 74 wins. Amy appeared to be taking aim at Ken's record until she was defeated yesterday by Rhone Talsma, a librarian from Chicago, Illinois.
During her run, Amy amassed total winnings of $1,800, placing her in fourth place earnings-wise alongside behind Natt Amodeo, James Holzhauer and, of course, Ken Jeennings. However, we haven't seen the last of the engineering manager who lives in Oakland, California. She will appear on Jeopardy!'s Tournament of Champions.
Get ready for the Jeopardy! National College Championship
The all-new Jeopardy! National College Championship will air in primetime on ABC from February 8 to February 22, 2022. It will be hosted by Mayim Bialik and it will feature 36 students from 15 colleges across the United States. The contestants are 18 year old or older. They are full-time undergraduates with no previous bachelor's degree. The championship rounds will reportedly be shown in hour-long segments instead of the usual half-hour.
Ken Jennings has been hosting Jeopardy! for a while now and Mayim Bialik is getting ready to host the show's next tournament, a national college championship. Provided Ken Jennings wants the job, do you think he should be named the permanent host, with Mayim Bialik presiding over the tournaments. Respond to the poll below and let me know.
