Amy Schneider, our favorite Jeopardy! stars, winning streak has come to end at 40 games & $1.3 million dollars. Florida Rupblican’s are pushing through more homophobic lesgilation; this time the focus is education. Yesterday Zaya Wade shared a touching tribute on Instagram to Kobe & Gianna Bryant.
Our leading story for today is about Amy Schneider. Our Jeopardy! champion’s winning streak has come to an end at 40 games. That’s right she ended with 40 wins and $1.38 million dollars in winnings. She has etched her name alongside the greats as she is second all time with the most wins and fourth all time in cash winnings. To give some context here no one has won this many games since Ken Jennings and that was 15 years ago. Amy said this after the loss, “It’s really been an honor. To know that I’m one of the most successful people at a game I’ve loved since I was a kid and to know that I’m a part of its history now, I just don’t know how to process it.” I’m sure it’s a whole lot to process and we are here rooting you on. The next time we’ll see Amy on Jeopardy! Is for the tournament of champions. She will be the first trans person to compete and it will be fun to see how she does against the best of the best. Go Amy!
And finally: thank you all for coming along with me on this journey! I wish I'd had the time to interact more with all of you, but I've read as many of your comments and messages as I could, and the overwhelming support and love you all have given me has meant the world to me— Amy Schneider (@Jeopardamy) January 27, 2022
