canadian Peril! fans will find out on Friday that the country’s own Mattea Roach can claim a 19th straight win and climb higher on the ladder of the show’s most successful contestants.
Roach, a 23-year-old tutor who lives in Toronto, has already won more games on Peril! than any Canadian to participate in the show.
If she wins another game on Friday, she will tie the last 19 straight wins of David Madden and Jason Zuffranieri.
After that, she would still trail Julia Collins (20 games), James Holzhauer (32 games), Matt Amodio (38 games), Amy Schneider (40 games) and Ken Jennings (74 games), according to the statistics on the Peril! website.
