Amy Schneider is on a roll becoming the latest three-day champ on the iconic answer-question game show, Jeopardy!

And, it seems, the champ is feeling comfortable with some major moves as Amy Schneider clinched another win on Friday evening by making a massive final wager that could have put her behind the top spot had she not delivered the correct answer.

It was an exciting moment, for sure, and thankfully, the Jeopardy! Instagram page gave us a quick glimpse of Schneider’s massive win.

“That $15K Final Jeopardy! wager from 3-day champ Amy Schneider was (100)!” reads the comment included in the popular game show’s Friday night Instagram post.

The November 19 post includes a photo of a beaming Amy Schneider standing behind her Jeopardy! contestant podium, which is displaying her winning amount of $44,800.

‘Jeopardy!’ Champ Shares Her Thoughts Competing On the Iconic Game Show

On November 18, Amy Schneider gave fans of the iconic game show a glimpse into what she was thinking as she began her three-day winning streak.

The game show winner started the thread with a frank confession that she felt nervous as she took the stage to compete on the popular game show.

“I got a confidence boost out of beating a five-day champion,” the Jeopardy! champion explains in her November 18 Twitter post.

“but I was still super nervous going into the game,” Schneider adds.

Earlier this week, Amy Schneider began her now three-day run on the popular game show when she beat the five-day reigning champ, Andrew He.

He’s successful run seemed to be on the upswing when Schneider came in at the end swooping up a win on the Final Jeopardy question.

Schneider was the only one of the contestants to answer the Final Jeopardy! question correctly, clinching her win over He.

While Andrew He’s successful run on the popular game show came to an end as Amy Schneider took on the champion role, this does not mean that He is done with his time competing on the popular games show.

Since the Jeopardy! champion won a total of five consecutive games during his championship run, He now has the opportunity to compete in the Tournament of Champions.

Andrew He will be joining fellow Jeopardy! super champions who have tallied up some impressive wins this season including Tyler Rhode who clinched a five-day winning run on the game show, eleven-day Jeopardy! winner Jonathan Fisher, and Matt Amodio who finished his run on Jeopardy! with a total of 38 wins.
