The most successful “female” ever to appear on Jeopardy! is actually a biological man.

Amy Schneider — the show’s first transgender contestant — became the highest-earning contestant who identifies as female ever after winning for the 18th consecutive time last Friday, beating out the former record-setter, Larissa Kelly. Schneider has now won $706,800 on the game show with a chance to win more tonight.

Kelly expressed her congratulations to Schneider after the historic moment was announced, NBC News reported:

“Well, it was fun to hold a Jeopardy record for a few years…but it’s been even more fun to watch @Jeopardamy set new standards for excellence, on the show and off. Congratulations to Amy on becoming the woman with the highest overall earnings in the show’s history!” she wrote.” 

To that, Schneider responded:

“Thanks so much, I’m honored to be in your company, and I look forward to some day watching the woman who beats us both!”

NBC News stated that another victory on Tuesday would give Schneider another “game show history” win.

If she wins again Tuesday, Schneider will make game show history for a third time this year, tying with supply chain professional Julia Collins, who won the most consecutive games among the show’s female contestants in 2014.

Schneider is not the first biological man to knockout a biological female from a coveted prize. As The Daily Wire recently reported, a college swimmer by the name of Lia Thomas has been crushing females left and right:

Over the weekend, a swimmer from the University of Pennsylvania who swam competitively for the men’s team for three years before switching to the women’s team, destroyed the biological women in the competition, winning the 1650 free by a gargantuan 38 seconds ahead of the young woman finishing second, winning the 500 free by a whopping twelve seconds ahead of the woman finishing second, and winning the 200 free by a still-huge seven seconds.

Lia Thomas, who as Will Thomas swam for the men’s team the prior three years, “left Akron with the nation’s fastest 200 freestyle time, the nation’s top time in the 500 free & 1650 time that would’ve had Thomas in the finals at the 2021 NCAA Championships. Thomas won the 1650 at the Akron Zippy Invitational by 38 seconds over her teammate. Her results in all three races set new Penn records along with meet and pool records,” Outkick reported.

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh has long-held a challenge for pro-transgender people who actually believe folks like Schneider are women. His question even sounds like it could be a Jeopardy! answer.

“What is a woman?” he often asks.

“Here’s a simple challenge for everyone who thinks that a biological male can be a woman: define ‘woman.'” Walsh tweeted in May of 2018. “I think any definition will either rule out the possibility of men being women, or expand the concept of womanhood into utter meaninglessness. Prove me wrong. Go ahead.”
