At the end of Double Jeopardy!, Schneider, in another runaway performance, led with a whopping $34,000, a $28,600 advantage over her nearest competitor.
In Final Jeopardy!, the clue in the category of Mountains: “First scaled in 1829, this 17,000-foot mountain has caused excitement by the supposed discovery of wood high up on it”: Schneider correctly answered Mount Ararat, the traditional resting place of Noah’s Ark. She wagered big with $20,000, raising her total to $54,000 for the episode.
“I’m sure your friends and your family, including Katie, are very proud,” Jennings said.
