"Jeopardy!" fan favorite Amy Schneider, whose 40-game winning streak placed her second on the show's list of all-time champions and set historic firsts for women and transgender contestants, has married her fiancee.

"A year ago today, I was in LA, waiting to fulfill a dream," Schneider tweeted, posting three wedding photos. "The year since has been full of good days, but by far the best one was May 9th, when Genevieve [Davis] and I got married. Without her, none of the other good days would have happened. I’m so lucky to share my life with her!"

She added on Instagram and Facebook that they were wed "in a small private ceremony at the Alameda County [California] Recorder. We will still be having a traditional wedding & reception next summer, but our lives have been much too busy this year to get very far in planning it, and we couldn't wait that long to proclaim our love and commitment to each other. Thank you, everyone for your support!"

From Nov. 17 through Jan. 26, Schneider amassed $1,382,800 on "Jeopardy!," making her fourth in regular-season earnings behind Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer and Matt Amodio, and second in number of games won, with 40 next to Jennings' 74. She is the show's highest-earning woman and the highest-earning trans contestant.
