Snyder beat opponents Andrew He and Sam Buttrey in the final for the third time that a competitor has to win three games to win the title.
“I feel amazing,” Snyder said in a statement after the win. “Before the final, I had this sudden moment of looking at myself, ‘I’m on the stage at the Tournament of Champions final,’ and it was crazy. And I won! It’s a great feeling.”
Snyder and he tied the game with two wins apiece on Monday in game six of a possible seven-game series. Buttre extended the series by securing his first and only win on Friday.
“Danger!” The Tournament of Champions, which begins Oct. 31, features 21 competitors who have won at least four games since the 2020 tournament, as well as the winners of the National College Championship, the Professors Tournament and the game show’s first Second Chance Faceoff.
Monday’s episode was the second time Snyder and Hee teamed up on game shows Snyder ended his five-game winning streak last November before the now-tournament champion went on a 40-game streak. Buttrey won $100,000 in the Professors tournament in December, making game show history.
Going towards the ultimate danger! On Monday, Snyder led him by just $1,400. The winner was determined by the contestant’s bet and whether they wrote the correct answer to the final clue. The final round clue in the “Place” section was, “The January 12, 1864 Washington Evening Star reported a performance of this ‘dashing comedy’ to “a full and delightful house.”
Buttrey guessed “Our Mutual Friend” incorrectly and lost everything after placing his entire $8,000 bet. He answered “our American cousin” correctly, raising his total to $17,001. But Snyder also answered the clue correctly and took the top spot After betting $13,000.
He came in second, winning $100,000, and third-place Buttrey won $50,000.
