Trans 'Jeopardy' Contestant, a Biological Male, Lauded as 'Woman With the Highest Overall Earnings in the Show's History

Amy Schneider—a biological male who identifies as female—has usurped a biological female to become the "woman with the highest overall earnings" in the history of Jeopardy!

Larissa Kelly, the biological female who previously held the title, congratulated Schneider on the accomplishment.

Schneider gladly accepted the accolades and the title as the highest-earning "woman."

The transgender contestant has won 20 games, raking in $768,600 in earnings—outstripping the $655,930 previously earned by Kelly.

Schneider addressed being transgender on "Jeopardy!" in a Twitter thread posted in late November.
