Ongoing “Jeopardy!” champ Amy Schneider has had an incredible few months, with her winning streak totaling nearly a million dollars over 23 consecutive games. But sadly, those good times have been marred by a recent robbery, which the contestant opened up about via Twitter.
“Hi all! So, first off: I’m fine. But I got robbed yesterday, lost my ID, credit cards, and phone. I then couldn’t really sleep last night, and have been dragging myself around all day trying to replace everything,” she wrote on January 3. “So, I doubt I’ll even start writing tonight’s game thread today, and if I keep winning, it may take a bit for me to get caught up. Thanks for your patience!” Fans of the game show quickly replied, with one penning, “So glad you’re okay but so sorry this happened to you. That kind of thing really turns your world upside down.” They continued, “Hope you’re able to replace everything relatively smoothly and that you are able to get some peace and calm back in your life.”
Along with many others, the internet continued the sentiment that they were thankful Schneider was physically safe, with only material items taken.
