Jeopardy! icon Amy Schneider announces engagement with beautiful tribute to fiancée
Jeopardy! champ Amy Schneider just keeps winning as she announces her engagement weeks after her historic run on the hit game show.
However, there was only heart that she cared about the most as she confirmed her engagement to partner Genevieve Davis.
“I have an announcement: Genevieve is no longer my girlfriend… she’s my fiancée,” Amy Schneider wrote on Thursday (25 February). “I couldn’t be happier or more proud to spend my life with the very best person in the entire world.”
My mom is like your biggest fan and she’s not on Twitter so I texted her the news and she had a question. pic.twitter.com/OGDowBwBSz

American journalist Katie Couric was one of the first to send well wishes as she commented: “Congratulations!”
“Congratulations, Amy! Your Jeopardy fans are so happy to see you so happy!”, another follower wrote while one fan added: “Congratulations!! 🎉✨ You’re having a pretty okay year 😉”
Another fan tweeted: “CONGRATULATIONS!! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness & love ❤️💍”
It’s so nice to read something loving on Twitter today.
Two engagement rings tho… 🤑
Thank God for #Jeopardy !
I have a feeling winning Genevieve’s heart was your biggest win! ✌🏼❤️💎

It’s been the year of dreams for Amy Schneider, 42, after she made Jeopardy! history as the first woman to break $1 million, ultimately winning nearly $1.4 million (£1 million) in prize money.
The California-based star also became the first trans person to ever qualify for the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions – meaning she will return to screens later this year.
The game show sensation quit her job as a software engineer earlier this month to focus on activism, among other things, and recently took part in a candid discussion with fellow trans icon Zaya Wade.
Schneider is sure to become a familiar face after recently signing with Hollywood talent agency CAA, which reps the likes of Zendaya and Tom Hanks.
