‘Jeopardy!’ Champ Amy Schneider Has Gotten Engaged With A Double-Ring Extravaganza

Jeopardy! winningest woman Amy Schneider’s having a ball after ending her winning streak (following 40 wins) that made her a (pre-tax) millionaire. She subsequently quit her day job and began writing a book. She’s also bought a fancy bathtub (because obviously), but something very special happened: Amy got engaged.

“I have an announcement,” Schneider tweeted on Thursday while showing off matching rings. “Genevieve is no longer my girlfriend… she’s my fiancée!!! I couldn’t be happier or more proud to spend my life with the very best person in the entire world.”

Congrats are in order all around. According to HuffPost, Genevieve Davis, a nanny, has lived with Amy in Oakland, California, which is a heck of a lot warmer than a lot of the U.S. right now, so hopefully, they can get their celebration on without freezing. In related news, Amy spoke as part of a Teen Vogue panel this week to discuss how she felt it was important to balance how she prioritized trans representation while on Jeopardy!:

“I think I felt a certain responsibility to be my best self and represent the trans community well. But I was also worried about that in the sense that I don’t want to present a ‘too perfect’ image of myself because I want everyone to be able to see that whether or not you are good at trivia, whether or not you have a lot of followers on social media, any of those things, you still deserve and can find the same acceptance, the same affirmation and freedom to accept who you are.”
