Although Gene is way too far from her, Amy likes to wear it because it would remind her about their sweet relationship. Scheneider told in an interview,

        • You seriously believe that this Derek Hough & the DWTS w/ the same name are one & the same?! It would be professional suicide to make these comments, along w/ not supporting someone’s chosen pronouns. Why would DWTS Derek make non supportive comments when his own sister claims to be bi-sexual? Nonetheless, it is not about Amy’s choices privately rather that DH believes Amy is being fed the answers for whatever political or societal reasons.

        • In his mind he believes he is a woman, and he made the conscious, yet, possibly skewed decision to have the one thing that denoted his true sex surgically removed, his penis. For all anyone knows, if they even care, he may have failed miserably in his marriage, thus he decided he’d try being a female and that’s exactly what he did. Many people probably don’t remember the story (it made the news, media & print) about Chris Jorgensen, whereby he was one of the first men to undergo what is commonly referred to in the medical industry as sex reassignment surgery. Many years later Chris would lament to the world (via a published article) that he regretted ever having that surgery, because it didn’t improve his quality of life.

          • It’s all for show. He couldn’t get on the show as a man, so he transitioned into a “wo-man”. Yet he still has a female partner. There is a fine line between genius and insanity. He’s just another man claiming to be something they aren’t to get famous. He doesn’t have ovaries, will never be able to produce an egg, get pregnant, or birth a child. It’s a huge slap in the face to the real (biological) females that have appeared on the show. Of course, he is given the answers. This is just another way for the left to push their homosexuality (gender) BS, onto the masses. If you don’t understand gender, buy a bull for milk and a rooster for eggs. If you believe he is a she, than you will believe anything.

          • What I do not understand is: why a man would trans to a woman and then get a girlfriend??? Does it make any sense? SHE already had a woman/wife. Wouldn’t SHE want to be with a MAN?

          • There is a disorder called gender dysphoria.
            It’s not a choice a person makes. It’s an actual medical condition. You can Google it. The Mayo Clinic has a very good explanation. I think it would make people more compassionate and less judgmental of Amy and others like her.

      • Really? This is 2021. They don’t fix shows like they used to. It is a crime.
        DWTS is so contrived that the show should be cancelled.

A biological male can be mutilated as he chooses but his body still KNOWS he is a male, a mutilated male, who dresses as a female and whosse DNA has remained as it was at conception – totally male.

At least she had full surgery, so she really felt the need to change. I am sick of first this and that-who cares, really? Good for whoever gets on the show in the first place.

  3. Congrats to Jeopardy and especially to Amy Schneider for the recent competitions that show Ms. Schneider to be smart, engaging, up-beat and an American that we can admire and respect. I’ve read a couple of articles describing the typical negative reactions that transgender people must contend with all too often and yet what we see is a poised, competent and attractive human being.

    Reply
    • Yes, but why she is a hero to me (a woman) is that as a former male she understands the hurdles that women must overcome. She even said as much in an interview. She credits her brilliance and self-esteem, in part, because she was able to voice her opinions as a male throughout her life without being ignored or have her thoughts minimized. The fact that she was born biologically male doesn’t change the fact that she identifies as woman – and therefore is a woman. So, with that being said, she is the first woman to achieve the heights she has achieved on Jeopardy. Let’s not trivialize.

      Reply
      • I am a woman and though I have trans friends, I have no idea how Amy’s privileged life prior to her transformation has anything to do with how women struggle. If she would presented earlier I life, she probably would have stuck barriers in her job field for one. Or had to deal with sexual harassment, etc. It is the same problem I have with the siblings that directed The Matrix. They used their white maleness to get ahead when women were pushed away from directing action movies or directing in general then suddenly, they are the top female grossing directors. I do appreciate Amy’s intelligence since it is making a fanboy out of Ken Jennings but I wish there was a note to her wins as well as movie directors that they are trans and not born biologically female. I feel biological females are being left in the dust. There are jokes were people comment that a biological female cannot to what Amy or other females do because it takes a male to do that. What liberates one group of people in society can oppress another and if you are a biological cis woman and speak out at all about the unfairness of entitled white guys who decide to present as female…you get labeled a TERF and are silenced. So what is a biological woman supposed to do? Just be more oppressed? I mean, I was a tomboy going up that looked up to Anybodys in West Side Story and now apparently that character wants to present as a dude. Really? I just get tired of biological women being erased. That women who have any supposedly masculine ideas are suddenly trans men. When I watch Amy, I can say, wow that person is so smart yet I still get a male vibe off of her no matter how she represents. I am ok with accepting how a person represents but at the same time I feel trans people should be called trans if they are in competitions. Or else every award given out that has a biological female champ will eventually be overrun by a male presenting as female. I feel this is unfair for women who have hurdles a trans women will never know. It is apples and oranges. All the sympathy in the world does not give you a biological female experience. And men do not have the opposite problem with women presenting as men. It is less likely trans males will tear down barriers so they aren’t in the news as much. I just have a lot of feels. I want everyone to live their best life but I also want everyone to truly be included and not run over by an oppressive sex. But this is happening and if you speak out, you are cancelled…it is very oppressive for those with a valid different opinion.

      • Thank you, Caty. It boggles my mind that people spend so much time judging and hating others. I have read this far in this thread about Amy in disbelief that people would judge and hate her/him. Do you all really have nothing to live for that you feel it necessary that you voice YOUR judgement of others in some ridiculous diatribe on the internet? You could be spending time with your families. God forgive all of you for not be more loving and caring individuals. As for Amy, I hope she/he is the highest winner ever on the Jeopardy show!! If it weren’t for all of the female hormones she has had to ingest she probably wouldn’t have been this intelligent. Need I say more to all of the male haters who have testosterone poisoning and are as clueless as a broken rock?? Go do something worthwhile…

      • We all mispronounce things. Your argument has remained the same throughout this thread. If you feel this is a set up perhaps use different examples to prove your point & either convince others or sway them. It matters not the gender, some people are very educated & feel it is essential to continual growth whether they pronounce Seychelles as say shells or sea shells. If your lone argument is that this contestant is being fed answers due to mispronouncation-you will have to go through 1,000’s of show where other contestants have mispronounced things.

  8. Amy, as she likes to be called, was born a man and will always be a man. At birth, it’s always XX or XY, and these two sexual traits (embedded in all humans’ DNA–follow the science, as the fraud Anthony Fauci tells you) are immutable. After birth until death, it’s always XX or XY, no matter how horrifically a male or female mutilates his or her body.

    I wish “Amy” all the best on Jeopardy, but “she,” like almost all successful Jeopardy contestants, will always be a man.

    You can tell that she (he, it) has been given the answers by the way she rings in very fast and mispronounces things as if she’s only read them and has no familiarity with the subject on which she seems expert.
    Don’t believe it, give no credit — it’s just a stunt to (a) have a successful “woman” at last and (b) a successful whatever it is.

  13. Dear Amy,
    Just found out you are Trans..and I was very surprised.. I love watching your quick brain and answers on Jeopardy.
    Forgive people for not understanding trans people. It is a hard concept to try and figure out. You were a man,,,then realized you are female..you take hormones to keep you a female…but now you have a “girlfriend” ?? So now you are a ‘gay” female??? Why not just stay a man?
    If you are now female. why not be attracted to men?? This is why trans folks really confuse a lot of people. We are not judging , just curious and confused.
    I hope you keep on winning on Jeopardy. You are amazing to watch, and any other contestant don’t have a chance. Keep it up.

  14. I really don’t care if Amy is a woman or man. I watch Jeopardy for the quiz show portion of it, and the knowledge that I see and hear. I have to give lots of credit (and cash, too) to Amy for her performance every night.
    My question is how did she get such knowledge, and can I do anything with my grandchildren to get them into this kind of thinking. (I doubt it since they have little inclination toward anything intellectual. I have tried to get them to read a newspaper, but find I am whistling in the wind.)
    Good luck Amy–keep the streak going!
    Also–Derek Hough–do you have any proof it’s fixed? I sure hope you’re wrong. Check out the $64,000 question which was fixed many years ago.

  15. Yea, once a gender always the same.
    If you tested Amy’s blood or DNA it would be male.
    That’s why former male/ female wannabe trans competing in women’s sports is destroying the women’s sports.
    If Ken Jennings decided to identify as a woman and says he always felt that way, would he now be the greatest female champion?

It’s difficult for me to keep up with all the changes occurring in our World today even though I do consider myself Naive rather than Unintelligent. It took several shows before I realized Amy was different from other Women. Sadly, I just tried not to think that she wasn’t very attractive. That’s as far as my judgment has gone but it still doesn’t make me very nice for thinking that. God Bless us All. Live and let Live while following the Golden Rule.

I have read most of your comments and I have to say some of you are elegant in the use of the English Language, however, it boils down to this: “If you don’t like a Trans. win on Jeopardy, don’t watch the program, if you don’t care then watch it and enjoy it”. But for Heaven’s sake quit arguing with each other: “It is what it is”.

    • “It is what it is” pretty much describes things here. Anyone who feels the need to label or categorize a person according to gender (real or perceived) is free to do so. That doesn’t determine or change what the person is. I personally do not refer to Amy Schneider by any female noun or pronoun. Many people disagree with my assessment and some would even call it hatred. It is not, but to each their own opinion. I wish that the producers of Jeopardy had taken a neutral stance, but clearly they have not. Lastly, I find it ironic that some people admonish others to quit arguing with each other, but are they not participating in the argument(s)?

  26. Until reading this article, I had no idea Amy was trans. It did not enter my mind. I just love Jeopardy and always have. I’m amazed at her intelligence and great play. She is an excellent player and very bright. You have my vote, Amy. This silly arguing is nonsensical. What did it accomplish? NOTHING. “Judge not lest yet be judged!”

    Let’s play the game…and cheer for the winners.

  27. Interesting, I am an 83 YO white male born a Texan and lived here all my life. What side should I take? I believe in science, medicine, social consciousness and religious freedom among other things. I believe it is acceptable to use science and medicine to modify flaws in our bodies to allow us to better function in a modern world. Be that correcting a damaged physiology to give us a better chance at surviving what god gave us to start with. Same is true in reference to our psychological view of self. God gave man the opportunity to learn (mostly by using science as a tool) how to make adjustments to our bodies to give us a better self-esteem. It should be no more of a wrong to use surgery to modify our outward appearance of maleness or femaleness than it is to use that same surgery to correct the ability to conceive or not to conceive. (Or for that matter to do breast augmentation or tummy tucks or whatever.) We are told that God charged us not to judge our fellows here on earth. I believe that this rule was to tell humanity that the final decision on right and wrong will only be made by the supreme judge, that is God. And the promulgator of that non-judgment rule created the failure to follow that tenet as a sin to be judged against by that same God. There was no room given for anyone to have the right of judgment instead of God. [Not priests, not ministers, and absolutely no unctuous self-righteous self-appointed wannabe judge.] But those among us who choose to do so can and will and only in the end-days judgement find out if they were choosing the path to glory. For the rest of us as we approach our mortality and after-death results must face the same risk. So for me, “Amy, go for it beautiful lady and good luck!”

    • You do understand that God wants people to be happy with who they already are, not surgically change themselves in order to be happy with who they are? Surgically changing your outside appearance doesn’t change anything on the inside. No matter what you’re still not going to be happy with who you are on the inside. And if it does somehow make you all the sudden feel good about yourself. That only proves shallow you truly are.

  28. I have a question for everyone here…If Tom Brady (or any successful professional team athlete) decided tomorrow to identify as a woman, would the NFL allow him/her to remain on the Buccaneers’ team, all his/her skills and ability not withstanding? Or would he usher in a revolution changing the rules of professional sports that would HAVE to allow both genders to participate? Would the NFL or any professional sport be forced to recognize TALENT and ABILITY as the only things that matter? I submit that as long as biological physical reality, i.e., DNA, is the only true way to determine true male and female sexual identification, then the NFL would have to allow Tom Brady, the “woman” to continue to play. My point is, the time has come for all competitive sports, intellectual or any other previously sexually segregated activity, to once and for all be ANDROGENOUS and no longer segregated. The gray area between biology and social identification has been effectively eliminated. From now on, all human beings must be allowed to participate in EVERYTHING. There can no longer be sexual segregation, with the exception of procreation and medical identification. I will enjoy reading everyone’s thoughts on this.

    • Amy Schneider is a woman, with regard to personal, social, professional and interpersonal connectivity, but Amy is not a true biological female, that is correct. The real core of the issue transgenderism represents is whether or not a person who actually believes they are not living in a physical body that reflects their true gender (as perceived by they themselves), should be allowed to force everyone else to disregard any advantages or benefits they may receive, if they decide to change their gender, which should only apply to those based on true biological identification. Even more to the point, is whether or not such a belief should be allowed to negatively affect those whose biological truth prevents them from being able to compete on a level playing field with transgendered people as if the transgendered are BIOLOGICALLY IDENTICAL to those choosing to exist as the gender they were born with, i.e., whose DNA prevents them from being on a level playing field with the transgendered. Professional sports are just one example of this.

  29. You can’t change your gender via body butchery. Your trillions of cells that identify you sex cannot be changed. He is a woman-wannabe. There is no such thing as Trans____ – no one can transition to another gender/sex. So ‘transphobia’ is a lie on several levels.

  30. Steve Harvey said it best, those of you that put Amy down, Are “Stuck on Stupid” especially the item that calls himself derek hough.

    • Steve couldn’t read the name on a card, he was handed. So who is really “stuck on stupid”? I’ll give you a little hint, it’s not the people that understand there are 2 genders. And no matter what you might believe, it is impossible to change your sex/gender. That is something that is defined by your chromosomes. However in 1.7% of the population there is something called hermaphrodite (intersex), yet they still either identify as male or female not both. And they cannot change their sex/gender whenever they so choose. He tried for years to get on the show as a man but couldn’t. All the sudden he claims to be a “wo-man” and mysteriously he gets on the show. Coincidence I think not. Just another way for the political left to shove BS, into the face of ration individuals.

  31. Very hard to watch Jeopardy these days. Wish I could be more openminded but sorry too weird. Most everyone I know has stopped watching and I root against ‘Amy’ every time I do watch. Didn’t Ken introduce ‘her’ as Amy Schneiderman (freudian slip) on one episode?

  33. I’ve known Amy for 30 years and she really is what you see on the show. Really smart (perfect SAT score in high school), she’s always reading (so sometimes pronouncing things phonetically) always curious.

  34. Brilliance and genius have nothing to do with gender This is a gift so easy to criticize do you think you could answer even some of the questions Yet so fast to condemn If you had a third of her knowledge you would be able to be on the show I think respect would more likely fit Amy Rob

    • Then why have all the million dollar winners on the show been the same gender, including Amy? He tried for years to get on the show as a man and couldn’t. All the sudden claims to be “wo-man” and magically gets on the show. That seems an awful lot like the woman that had to drop out of the presidential race because she couldn’t even get 3% of the vote in her own state. Then magically she is somehow the VP. Sort of like they were given the spots solely because of how they identify.

  35. If Amy the transoid looks like a man with lipstick, and claims to have had a sex change, he/she/it is living with her girlfriend. Does this make her a lesbian?

  36. I can’t believe nobody gets it. The sole purpose of the show is to get you to watch so they can sell you a product nothing else. They will push the envelope as far as they can to hook you. After reading this I see they did their job. Big Brother wins again keep watching they have more to sell you. I wonder what’s next? The network is working on it right now.

  38. I think Amy is so great. What a neat lady. I am interested in astrology so I had to look up her and Ken Jennings Birthdays. Kens is May 26th, Amys is May 29th, both Gemini’s.
    Wow, interesting. I wonder if they know that. Doesn’t make any difference, but just wondered.

    Most of you guys are weird. Must have been raised by weird people. I had loving parents so had a fabulous childhood. I feel sorry for those of you who did not. And for those of you who want to criticize me, ………..why? What’s you problem????????
