Canadian Mattea Roach named in the Tournament of Champions on ‘Jeopardy!’

Canadian Risk! star Mattea Roach will return to television screens this fall for the Tournament of Champions.

The Nova Scotia-born girl won 23 straight games during the spring season, ending with a total of $560,983 — or just over $720,000 in Canadian currency.

Roach also has both the fifth-longest streak in the show’s history and the fifth-highest winning streak in regular games of the season. When she lost the 24th game, on May 6, she lost only $1.

Her smart whip instincts and coat collection won the hearts of many.

She’s from Halifax, but worked as an LSAT tutor in Toronto before winning. She told the Canadian press in June that she was planning to attend law school this year, and received her first acceptance while filming the show. At the time, Roach was still deciding where to enroll, but she said she would work a little less and enjoy her summer.

According to her Twitter, she also started hosting a podcast about Canadian politics.
