Amy Schneider is the first woman to win more than $1 million on the quiz show.


Schneider won $1 million on an episode of the game show last week.

She is the 4th player on the show, as well as the first female champion, to win over $1 million during regular-season play.


In her 28th game, Schneider made show history.

She won about $42,000 during the show.


The current show host who was the first player to reach $1 million back in 2004, and the second person to reach $1 million in 2019, are now joined by Schneinder.

Last year, Matt Amadio surpassed $1 million as well.


Schneider described her win in a press release as amazing and strange.

“It’s not a sum of money I ever anticipated would be associated with my name,” she said, the outlet reports.


Schneider is the first woman to win over $1 million on the game show, and she is also the first openly trans contestant to qualify for the tournament.

Later this year, the Tournament of Champions will be taking place.


Heartiest congratulations, Amy!
