Friday’s ‘Jeopardy!’ means a new moment for the last mega-champion | WGN Radio 720


NEW YORK (AP) – Friday’s “Jeopardy!” the match was a turning point for the last mega-champion of the game.

The last long-time champion of “Danger!” her winning streak ended at 23 – one dollar.

Matthew Roach, a teacher from Toronto, saw that her winning streak ended at 23 – one dollar.

Roach earned $ 560,983 while performing in a game show. She has one of the five longest winning streaks in “Danger!” history, but did not come close to Ken Jennings ’record with 74 wins in a row.

Daniel Maurer, marketing manager from Peachtree Corners, Georgia, defeated Roach in Friday’s show with a margin of $ 15,600 to $ 15,599.

Unlike his penultimate match, Roach moved on to the final issue, leading Friday. But the Final Jeopardy question was about the name of the Atlanta airport, right near where Maurer lived.

The category was the U.S., and the clue was, “These two mayors gave their names to a facility built on the site of an old racetrack owned by Coca-Cola mogul Ace Candler.”

The correct answer is, “Who are William Hartsfield and Maynard Jackson?”

Roach was wrong, Mauer was right, and she bet enough to win.

“It’s still like a dream,” Roach said. “I really came here hoping to maybe win one game, so I still can’t believe it. You know, it’s weird, obviously I didn’t go through last, but I still feel so happy and so happy to have had that experience. ”

Roach will return to participate in the Champions Tournament in a game show this fall. Among her contenders will be Matt Amadio and Amy Schneider, who are also involved in “Danger!” the five longest winning streaks for their work this year.
