Canada’s quiz show queen has held onto her crown.
Mattea Roach beat out fellow “Jeopardy” super-champions Amy Schneider and Matt Amodio Tuesday in a special exhibition game before the trio joins the tournament of champions.
She won with $17,600, compared to Schneider’s $904 and Amodio’s $3,600, though there was no money on the table during this game — just bragging rights.
Roach, who hails from Halifax and now calls Toronto home, 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 join the tournament of champions semifinal round in a series of games that start Wednesday.
