Jeopardy! Contestant Mattea Roach Wins 14th Straight Game, Gets Into Show Record Books
Get out the erasers. There’s a new entry in the Jeopardy! record books.
Mattea Roach, a 23-year-old tutor from Toronto, Ontario, won her 14th straight game today and brought her total winnings to $320,081. With this win, Roach became eighth on the all-time consecutive games list and tenth on the all-time highest non-tournament cash winnings list.
Roach is also the winningest Canadian contestant in Jeopardy! history. She has answered 93% of clues correctly through her 14 games so far.
“This has been such a crazy season of streaks and I was fully thinking Amy [Schneider] might still be here,” Roach said. “If it’s not Amy, there’s going to be some other super-champion that’s just going to knock me out Game One. I guess what I didn’t realize is maybe I could become the super-champion I wanted to see in the world.”
Roach returns to the stage on Monday, April 25, to face off against two new challengers: Michael Graff from Eastvale, Calif., and Marietta, Ga.’s Jessie Francis.
