Mattea Roach has become one of the most successful Jeopardy! champions of all time. But, did her winning streak continue on Tuesday night?

Roach, a tutor from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is already the winningest contestant from Canada. Her $227,601 in winnings places her 16th in the show’s history among regular play only, according to TheJeopardyFan.com.

Tonight, she put her 10-game winning streak on the line against Josh Sen, a student from Edison, New Jersey, and Tina Disciullo-Acker, a manager of development events from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Mattea Roach got back to doing what she does best in the “Jeopardy!” round, jumping out to an early lead. After the first set of clues, she had $5,600. Josh Sen sat in second with $2,800, followed by Tina Disciullo-Acker at $1,400.

“Double Jeopardy!” saw more of the same. Roach banked a total of $17,400, giving herself a comfortable lead over Sen’s $8,600. Disciullo-Acker went into the final round with $7,000.

The game was out of reach, so “Final Jeopardy!” was another formality. All three contestants answered incorrectly, but Mattea Roach still walked away as the Jeopardy! champion.

What was tonight’s Final Jeopardy! question?

Unfortunately, tonight’s tough final question was wasted since Sen couldn’t catch Roach. Here’s the clue in the category “Countries of Africa”:
