What is, Amy Schneider’s reign on Jeopardy is over
January 26th, 2022 under Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]

Earlier this week, Amy Schneider won the second most consecutive games on Jeopardy. The only person who has won more games in a row is Ken Jennings.

Today, after 40 wins, she suffered her first loss. Therefore, her steak is over. And what a streak it was. She walks away with $1,382,800.

“It’s really been an honor,” Schneider said. “To know that I’m one of the most successful people at a game I’ve loved since I was a kid and to know that I’m a part of its history now, I just don’t know how to process it.”

This is not the last we have seen of her. Schneider will be back for the Tournament of Champions. Will she be playing against Rhone Talsma, the man who beat her tonight? Tune in tomorrow and the day after that to find out how long his streak will last.

What is, Amy Schneider is Jeopardy’s #2?
January 25th, 2022 under Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday was a big day for Amy Schneider. She won her 39th consecutive game on Jeopardy. Why is that such a big deal? That is because she is now in second place for consecutive wins behind only Ken Jennings.

How many games does she have to win to become #1? His record stands at 75, and I don’t foresee anyone taking him down anytime soon.

When it comes to money totals, Schneider is in fourth place behind Matt Amodio. Amodio is the person she knocked out of second place. And since she needs about $200,000 more to take over third place, I think his position is safe.

Am I the only one who feels like this is happening a lot more frequently? Part of the reason is that Jeopardy used to have a 5-game limit. However, in 2003, they got rid of that rule. Do you think they need to bring it back?

What is Jeopardy’s Amy Schneider is so much hipper than me?

Yesterday on Jeopardy, they wanted to see how well the contestants knew the Billboard Top 200 Albums in 2021. How well did they do? Amy Schneider, the winningest woman in the game show’s history, got four out of the five correct. The one question she missed was a greatest hits one, so technically, it wasn’t even 2021 related.

Sadly for me, that is the only I got. I am old! I am calling Shady Pines and making an appointment to check out my new digs.

How did you do?

What is, can this Jeopardy category be any easier?

I don’t know about you, but I normally bomb at Jeopardy. Not yesterday during the New Year’s Rockin’ Eve category. It was so easy; even someone like me could nail it. Now, I am going to into 2022 feeling smart! Thank you, Jeopardy.

How did you do?

What is, Jeopardy contestants don’t know who Machine Gun Kelly is?
December 28th, 2021 under Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday on Jeopardy, there was a category on the show called Musical 3-INITIALers. The $800 clue showed a photo of Machine Gun Kelly, and Ken Jennings asked, “The stage name of this rapper and actor gets shortened to MGK.” Not one contestant even tried to guess. Leading to the host saying to them, “Not fans of Machine Gun Kelly apparently.”

Let’s be honest. Does he have any fans besides Megan Fox and Pete Davidson?
