Amy Schneider’s “Jeopardy!” winning streak has finally come to an end.
Last week, the 42-year-old made history when she won her 39th game and became No. 2 on the game show’s consecutive wins list — and the winningest woman.
But her time at the top ended Wednesday when she lost to Rhone Talsma, a librarian from Chicago.
Talsma scored $29,600 while Schneider finished in second place with $19,600.
Talsma was sitting pretty after he hit a Daily Double late in the Double Jeopardy! round and answered correctly. As she headed into the Final Jeopardy! round, Schneider led with a score of $27,600, while Talsma had $17,600.
