Thirteen isn’t an unlucky number for Nova Scotia’s Mattea Roach.

The 23-year-old originally from Halifax won her 13th consecutive Jeopardy! game last night, bringing home another $14,799. She has now won a total of US$286,081.

The latest win puts her in a two-way tie for the eighth-most wins in Jeopardy! history, according to the show’s Hall of Fame. She has already qualified for a spot in the next Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions.

According to the Jeopardy! daily box score, Roach attempted to buzz in 38 times and was successful 22 times. She answered 23 questions correctly and none incorrectly during regular play, giving her a 100 per cent success rate.

Roach did, however, get the Final Jeopardy! question wrong, but it wasn’t enough to offset her substantial lead going into the final round.
