Amy Schneider Becomes First Woman To Break $1 Million On ‘Jeopardy’

“Jeopardy!” contestant Amy Schneider made historical past — once more — by turning into the primary girl to surpass $1 million in winnings on the present.

On Friday, Schneider marked her 28th consecutive win, including as much as a complete of $1,019,600 in winnings thus far, reported Variety.

Only three different folks have handed the $1 million milestone in regular-season play within the sport present’s historical past: Matt Amodio, Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer.

In November, Amy Schneider grew to become the first overtly transgender contestant to qualify for the present’s “Tournament of Champions,” made up of the earlier years’ prime gamers.

“Seeing trans people anywhere in society that you haven’t seen them before is so valuable for the kids right now that are seeing it,” Schneider, an engineering supervisor who lives in Oakland, California, instructed San Francisco’s native ABC information station, KGO-TV, final 12 months.

“I’m so grateful that I am giving some nerdy little trans kid somewhere the realization that this is something that they could do, too,” she added.
