Amy Schneider, then Jeopardy, record-breaker, revealed that she is all right following a robbery on Monday.

The 42-year-old Oakland, California resident stated on Twitter that, aside from losing her I.D., wallet, phone, and sleep, she is doing OK. Amy, who typically tweets a thread to accompany each episode of the quiz show she appears, said in a follow-up tweet that she probably wouldn’t be able to write one in time for Monday’s Jeopardy! The game following the robbery.

Amy is the first trans woman to earn a spot in the game show’s Tournament of Champions and is the highest-earning female contestant in the game show’s history. As of the episode, which aired on January 4, Schneider has won 25 consecutive regular-season games and a total of $918,000. She is the fourth highest-earning contestant overall for regular-season games and fifth for overall winnings.

Sadly, transphobes sometimes flock to Schneider’s Twitter feed to harass and criticize her. In a clever response to some of them, Schneider tweeted, “I’d like to thank all the people who have taken the time, during this busy holiday season, to reach out and explain to me that I’m a man. Every single one of you is the first person ever to make that very clever point, which had never once before crossed my mind.”

I will take “Wicked Burns” for 500, Alex. Err, Ken.

In earlier December, in an interview with ABC7, Amy said participating in the game show meant a lot to her not only as a long-time fan but also because it let her send “a positive message to the nerdy trans girl who wants to be on the show too.”

On December 24, on Twitter, Larissa Kelly, once the highest-earning female player in Jeopardy! History congratulated Amy for beating her record.

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