Canadian “Jeopardy!” star continues to dominate with a 15th victory
Nothing stops the Canadian Peril! candidate Mattea Roach.
On Monday night, the Halifax-born prodigy won her 15th match, taking home $32,700 and taking home a total of $352,781.
The Toronto-based tutor definitely taught her contest a lesson, answering 26 out of 27 questions correctly. She also landed two daily doubles, one of which was perfect for the Nova Scotian.
“Tthe Torontonian from Halifax who is absolutely *crushing* on #Peril just landed on this Daily Double index, and it couldn’t have been more perfect,” one fan tweeted along with a photo of Roach knowingly smiling next to the Daily Double.
The clue was “3 of the 4 Atlantic provinces of Canada start with “N”: Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, this one.

For those who need to freshen up their Canadian provinces, the answer is New Brunswick.
Roach is also on top of his knowledge of American anecdotes.
Last night’s latest hazard concerned names in American history: “Capable of carrying about 180 tons of cargo, in 1624 it was in poor condition and rated at a total value of 128 pounds.”
“Mattea Roach, the champion, she was good on Canadiana earlier in the game; how is she doing on Americana,” co-host Ken Jennings said.
Roach correctly answered, “What is the Mayflower?” She bet $5,500. Opponent Jessie Francis also responded correctly to the last danger, but only bet $100, bringing her winnings to $10,300, still well behind Roach.
the Peril! star made history by becoming the first Canadian to win more than five games.
