The record-breaking Jeopardy! champion ended her 40-game winning streak Wednesday evening. And while her gameplay has come to an end for now, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Schneider has signed with CAA.
Schneider is the most accomplished woman on Jeopardy!'s all-time consecutive wins list, with her winnings totaling $1.4 million. Ken Jennings (74 straight), who took over part-time hosting duties following the death of long-time host Alex Trebek, is the third woman on the Oakland-based engineering director.
Schneider's winnings put her among the top four most-winning contestants during regular-season competition, behind Jennings ($2,520,700), James Holzhauer ($2,462,216) and Matt Amodio ($1,518,601).
She will compete in the next edition of Jeopardy!'s Tournament of Champions this fall, where she will face Amodio, who previously won the No. 2 spot in all-time championships.
Schneider lost to Rhone Talsma, a librarian from Chicago, on a broadcast on January 26.
Schneider described it as a honest moment when it comes to knowing that I am a most successful person at a game that I've loved since I was a kid.
