with his last Peril! victory on Tuesday night, the 23-year-old became the sole holder of the fifth-longest game show winning streak, surpassing the record of 20 wins set by supply chain professional Julia Collins in 2014.

“Julia Collins was the iconic woman Peril! player for such a long time,” Roach told Ken Jennings when the co-host asked him mid-show to list some of them. Peril! hero.

Arguably equally exciting for Roach was the fact that she won $29,599 on the night to push her total winnings past half a million to $506,584 (US).

The Nova Scotia native answered 89% of her clues correctly Tuesday night en route to contestants Angela Kissner of Akron, Ohio, and Enver Casimir of Albany, Calif.

Roach has her work cut out if she wants to surpass James Holzhauer’s fourth-longest winning streak of 32 games achieved in 2019.

Of course, the Canuck superstar can only dream of matching co-host Jennings, the Peril! GOAT who holds the longest winning streak with 74 games in 2014.

Roach has already earned a spot in the show’s Tournament of Champions, which will air in the fall.
