‘Jeopardy!’ mega-champ’s win streak snapped at 23
NEW YORK » The latest long-time champ on “Jeopardy!” has seen her winning streak end at 23 — by a single dollar.
Mattea Roach, a tutor from Toronto, earned $560,983 during her run on the game show. She’s has one of the five longest winning streaks in “Jeopardy!” history, but didn’t come close to Ken Jennings’ record of 74 consecutive wins.
Danielle Maurer, a marketing manager from Peachtree Corners, Ga., beat Roach $15,600 to $15,599.
The Final Jeopardy question was about the name of Atlanta’s airport, right near where Maurer lived.
