Amy Schneider made ‘Jeopardy!’ history in more than one category

In addition to being the first woman to enter million-dollar territory, Schneider is also Jeopardy!‘s biggest-winning trans contestant in the game show’s history. The engineering manager knocked former champs James Holzhauer and Matt Amodio each down a ranking for most consecutive wins and is sole owner of the second place spot.

Schneider’s winning streak ended on Jan. 26. She left the show with $1,382,800 in winnings and a certain level of celebrity.

“It’s really been an honor,” Schneider said in a statement, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. “To know that I’m one of the most successful people at a game I’ve loved since I was a kid and to know that I’m a part of its history now, I just don’t know how to process it.”
