It all came down to one word.
After 40 consecutive wins on Jeopardy!, Amy Schneider’s streak was broken on Wednesday.
The answer that stumped Schneider was about countries of the world:
“The only nation whose name in English ends in an ‘h’ and which is also one of the 10 most populous.”
The correct response: “What is Bangladesh?”
Not to worry, Schneider still walked away with nearly $1.4 million in prize money and a No. 2 spot in Jeopardy! history for consecutive games won behind all-time great Ken Jennings, who won 74 games in a row.
