Canadian ‘Jeopardy!’ champ Mattea Roach goes for 20 straight wins tonight

Canadian Jeopardy! champ Mattea Roach can hit another big milestone on Monday night’s episode of the quiz show.

Another win would mean 20 straight for the 23-year-old Toronto tutor. Roach would also move into fifth place on the game show’s all-time list of longest winning streaks — she is currently tied for sixth.

Current host Ken Jennings holds the all-time record with 74 consecutive wins. Amy Schneider, whose streak wrapped up in January of this year, is second all-time with 40 wins in a row.


Roach already has the longest streak of any Canadian who has appeared on the show and has claimed more than $460,000 in winnings, 10th most in the show’s history and sixth most in regular-season play.

She has also clinched a spot in Jeopardy!’s tournament of champions, set to air next fall.

Born and raised in Halifax, Roach graduated from the University of Toronto with a bachelor’s degree in sexual diversity studies, political science and women and gender studies.
