Roach’s win is the ninth largest in “Jeopardy!” history, and she will go on to play in the “Tournament of Champions” next, where she will face some of the show’s most famous players. Roach is from Halifax, N.S., but lives in Toronto and works as a tutor. Although some critics have criticized Roach’s approach to the game, she says she’s grateful for the support she has received.
Despite her youthful age, Roach has become a celebrity. She has earned over $560,983 in games and has won 23 times.

Her witty play even made her stand out from among her peers. The Toronto-based tutor will continue her journey to the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions in the fall.
