Amy Schneider, a transgender woman, called Trans Awareness Week ‘Jeopardy!’ Will win


“Jeopardy!” The contestant Amy Schneider Monday’s episode is heading with a winning streak, joining some of the trans winners openly on the show, and thanks to the trans contestants who came before him.

Schneider, an engineering manager in Oakland, California, became a three-day champion with $ 110,200 in Friday’s issue after she entered the final jeopardy round of $ 25,000 ahead of her rival and pocketed $ 15,000.

The ultimate jeopardy class: American authors of the 20th century. Schneider correctly replied that both Harper Lee and Truman Capote were childhood friends with exhibits at the Old Courthouse Museum in Monroeville, Alabama.

“I could bet up to 24,999, and I’ve considered it. But it’s hard,” Schneider wrote in a series of tweets over the weekend. “Also, I was betting on the price of the car. I thought it was wrong. But it paid back, and I topped $ 100K in total winnings! I repeat: a. One hundred thousand dollars. I mean, I still can’t believe it, and I I’ve seen it on national TV. ”

‘I was terrified’:Ken Jennings has Alex Alex Trebek as ‘Jeopardy!’ On his return he remembers his place.

Friday’s victory coincidentally fell on the last day of Trans Awareness Week, which runs from November 13-19 each year.

Schneider isn’t the first openly trans person to compete in a long-running game show. She noted that “a handful” came forward, including last year’s first out-of-trance champion, Kate Freeman.

“My thanks to all of them for lighting the trail!” Schneider tweeted.

She also mentioned the setback Viewers who thought it was sensible The exhibition featured a class titled “Naturalized Woman,” which included questions about famous women who were not born in the US and later became naturalized citizens. “Jeopardy!” Reached for more comment.

“Actually there’s nothing wrong with that, and I totally forgot about it until I watched the episode today,” Schneider said. “But I think it’s very clear that it landed differently with a trans woman on stage. It’s unfortunate.”

Trans Awareness Week:The trans community can’t stop reading horror news. There is a way to turn.

Not a ‘two-sided problem’:There are transgender people. Why debate whether they should have rights?
