How Amy Schneider Has Already Made Jeopardy! History

The hit game show "Jeopardy!" has seen many successful contestants compete throughout its history. Ken Jennings has been the most recognizable contestant of the show's past (via Ranker). His impressive 75 games winning streak back in 2004 made him $2.5 million and allowed him to become a celebrity in his own right.

Who can forget NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers' run on the show's all-celebrity spin-off? He won the celebrity tournament. He was so good that when Alex Trebek tragically passed away, he was in the running to become the show's new host (via NFL). He even guest-hosted and loved the experience. He said, "When you're just a super 'Jeopardy!' fan like I am, it's just so special to be on that stage, to be in that environment when you know you're walking in the footsteps of legends."

Now, a new name is joining the list of "Jeopardy!" greats and she is breaking records left and right.

Schneider is proud of her Jeopardy! success

Recently, Amy Schneider opened up to the hosts of Good Morning America about becoming the winningest woman in "Jeopardy!" history. The contestant has made history as both as a transgender contestant and by winning so many games that only Jennings has more wins under his belt than her.

When asked what the best part of being on the show was, she shared, "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," she gushed. "And just being, you know, a smart, confident woman and doing something super normal like being on 'Jeopardy!'"

Schnider has won 38 games straight (via TMZ). With the impressive winning streak comes "Jeopardy!" fame, but she wasn't super prepared for what came along with the title. However, she is proud to represent the transgender community and plans to keep impressing on the show!
