Canadian Mattea Roach breaks the $200,000 mark on Jeopardy!


Who is now nine times Peril! champ?

The answer is Toronto tutor Mattea Roach.

The 23-year-old from Nova Scotia won the popular quiz again on Friday night, adding another US$28,001 in winnings for a total of $210,802.

The ‘Final Jeopardy’ category of Oscar winners secured Roach’s victory with the clue: “In 2019, he won his first Oscar in competition, 36 years after a Student Academy Award for a film about a barbershop by Brooklyn.”

With a bid of $6,201, Roach correctly wrote, “Who is Spike Lee?”

Roach now moves on to try to earn No. 10 on Monday.
