Mattea Roach had high praise for Amy Schneider on Twitter.
Amy Schneider won the 2022 “Jeopardy!” Tournament of Champions.
She previously made headlines for winning 40 games in a row in January.
Mattea said the most “meaningful” part of the tournament was telling Amy something directly.
Mattea told Amy, “I truly believe watching [you] run made it possible for me to succeed on the show myself.”
Mattea called Amy “a phenomenal Jeopardy player [and] a tireless advocate for our communities.”
Amy identifies as trans and Mattea identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns.
“I’m proud and grateful to know you, too,” Amy replied.
Amy added, “We all deserve to shine bright, and I’ve loved seeing your light in my world.”
