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.
Well, it was fun to hold a Jeopardy record for a few years...but it's been even more fun to watch @Jeopardamy set new standards for excellence, on the show and off. Congratulations to Amy on becoming the woman with the highest overall earnings in the show's history!— Larissa Kelly (@Larissa_K_Kelly) December 24, 2021
Schneider gladly accepted the accolades and the title as the highest-earning "woman."
Thanks so much, I'm honored to be in your company, and I look forward to some day watching the woman who beats us both!— Amy Schneider (@Jeopardamy) December 24, 2021
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.
