Jeopardy! champ Amy Schneider has been praised by one of her recent competitors for handling the "bigots" she faces on social media with "grace."California-based engineering manager Schneider made her debut on the syndicated quiz show in November during Trans Awareness Week and has since gone on to become the first transgender woman to qualify for Tournament of Champions.As she continues to rack up records—including being the highest earning woman in the show's history and having the longest win streak of all women—she has also encountered unpleasant comments from a relatively small fraction of Twitter users.In an essay penned for Boston NPR affiliate WBUR, Andrea Asuaje discussed how she had been defeated by Schneider when they competed against one another on the show, in an episode that aired toward the end of November.And after recounting the highs and lows of her Jeopardy! experience in great detail, the podcast producer praised Schneider not only for her formidability in the game, but also for how she faces "narrow-minded jerks" on social media."She's an incredible player, navigating the board like she's been doing it her whole life," Asuaje wrote. "She's also handled the absolutely vile comments she's received on social media from bigots and narrow-minded jerks with grace and strength.""I lost to Amy Schneider, but now I want her to keep winning," she went on.
