Jeopardy! Amy Schneider, a champion, and her companion, Genevieve Davis, are now husband and wife.
Schneider, the show’s most successful transgender competitor, and Davis tied the knot on May 9, but they didn’t make the news public until this past Tuesday.
In a Facebook message they also shared to The Advocate, Genevieve Davis and Amy Schneider stated, “We are thrilled to inform that on Monday, May 9, we were married in a small private ceremony at the Alameda County Recorder.” To officially declare our love and devotion to one other, we couldn’t wait until next summer when we plan to have a regular wedding.
The city of Oakland, which is in the county of Alameda in Northern California, is Schneider’s longtime home.

She’ll be the first transgender person to compete in Jeopardyannual !’s Tournament of Champions, which features the show’s best players from the previous year. The broadcast of this year’s competition will start on Halloween.
Ever since his Jeopardy! win, Schneider has kept up an active Twitter profile. A tweet announced her engagement to Davis in February.
Schneider told The Advocate in January that the show’s positive trans visibility was its best feature. She even went so far as to call it the highlight of her visit.
