“I didn’t get to meet the president, but I did meet Doug Emhoff, the second gentleman, and it was International Transgender Day of Visibility,” Schneider recalled. “It was really cool.”

Roach dominated throughout the episode, leading with $17,600 at the end of Double Jeopardy! Schneider was second with $7,400. Amodio followed with $3,600.

The final danger! question in the Names of Chemical Elements category: “The three elements whose names begin with two vowels are iodine and these two, one synthetic and one natural.”

Schneider and Amodio were puzzled, but Roach answered correctly with einsteinium and europium. Roach didn’t bet and held to $17,600. Amodio didn’t bet and stayed at $3,600. Schneider bet $6,496 and finished third with $904.

“Alex Trebek always loved the Tournament of Champions, he loved having fun on ‘Jeopardy!’ and he loved great players like that,” Jennings said.

The semifinals begin Wednesday with Schneider facing off against Maureen O’Neil, an executive assistant from Cambridge, Mass., and Tyler Rhode, a startup director from New York, New York. Schneider will not compete daily due to the rotation of Amodio and Roach.

The tournament, which brings together the best players of 2022, was taped in September in Los Angeles.
