Will Amy Schneider Be the All-Time Greatest Jeopardy Winner?

By Lori Perkins

Amy Schneider, the current Jeopardy champ, is nearing the record overall Jeopardy champion with a 39-day winning streak for a total of $1319, 800! And she is still going strong.

She is the second winningist Jeopardy player in consecutive wins. Current Jeopardy host Ken Jennings is the only other contestant in the show's history to have won more games than Schneider at 74 wins winning and a total of $2.52 million, but I have a feeling that record is about to be broken.

“Jeopardy Amy” is acknowledged as one of the best players in the show’s history and has now become one of the most famous trans women in the United States.

In a recent Good Morning America interview, Schneider told George Stephanopoulos, "I think that the best part for me has been being on TV, you know, as my true self, expressing myself and representing the entire community of trans people and… just being, you know, a smart, confident woman and doing something super normal like being on Jeopardy.”
