Thanks to Ashley and Donna! They both had their moments, but once I got those two Daily Doubles that was pretty much all there was to it. I was almost 3/4 of the way to the million, and it was time to change for the next show, and I already knew exactly what I'd be wearing!— Amy Schneider (@Jeopardamy) December 28, 2021
