Mattea Roach retains quiz crown and beats other super champions

TORONTO – Canada’s quiz queen has retained her crown.

Mattea Roach defeated fellow « Jeopardy » super-champions Amy Schneider and Matt Amodio on Tuesday in a special exhibition match before the trio joined the Tournament of Champions.

She won with $17,600, compared to Schneider’s $904 and Amodio’s $3,600, although there was no money on the table during this match – just bragging rights.

Roach, who is originally from Halifax and now lives in Toronto, became the « Jeopardy » contestant with the fifth-longest winning streak in the show’s history earlier this year.

Schneider has the second longest streak, while Amodio has the third.

The three will reach the semi-final of the Tournament of Champions in a series of matches which will begin on Wednesday.
