Queer News Tonight previously reported when Amy Schneider became the top earning female contestant on “Jeopardy!”, and she continued to break records with her 29th victory last night, becoming the first woman in the show's history to win more than $1 million in cumulative prize money. Schneider, an engineering manager from Oakland, California, is one of only four people to have ever broken the $1 million mark on the quiz show in regular-season play. Schneider's winnings now stand at $1,035,400, after taking home $15,800 last night. Only three other contestants — Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer and Matt Amodio — have won more games and more money in the regular season. She's not yet close to third-place Amodio when it comes to winnings — he finished his streak at $1,518,601 — but she could overtake Holzhauer's 32 wins in the coming days. Schneider also broke records last year when she became the first transgender contestant to qualify for the Tournament of Champions.
