“The stage name of this rapper and actor gets shortened to MGK,” said host . However, the buzzer eventually went off as neither Donna Lettow, Ashley Castle or returning champion managed to guess Machine Gun Kelly. Regardless, Schneider continued to slay Monday night.
The current champion made history last week when she became the first transgender contestant to advance to the Tournament of Champions and earned the fourth-highest winnings in the history of the show. Her record-breaking streak continued on Christmas Eve, when she won her 18th consecutive game, totaling $706,800, which officially made her the highest-earning woman of all time.
Schneider ended Monday night’s game in the lead with a 19-day cash winnings total of $745,200. Should she continue her dominance through Wednesday, Schneider will hit a 21-game win streak and will take over the fourth-place record for most consecutive wins behind Jeopardy! Legend Ken Jennings with a 74-winning streak in 2004, followed by Matt Amodio with a 38-winning streak earlier this year and James Holzhauer who had a 32-winning streak. Will she make it? Stay tuned to find out.
As for the MGK clue, viewers thought it was absolutely hilarious that no one knew who Machine Gun Kelly is, and took to Twitter with some pretty funny comments.
