You’ve probably heard the name Mattea Roach.

Now another Toronto contestant is coming Danger! when the show airs on YES-TV at 7:30 PM.

Matt Petroff, a Toronto-based management consultant, will participate in the popular game show.

He follows in the now famous footsteps of Roach, the 23-year-old teacher from Toronto who earned 24 wins and $560,983. The University of Toronto’s five-week run put her in fifth place on its all-time list for consecutive wins.

Only legends Ken Jennings, Amy Schneider, Matt Amodio and James Holzhauer have won more games or money during their time on the show.

Our apologies, but this video cannot be loaded.

Meanwhile, Jennings, the famous 74-game winner, recently revealed that he is taking a break from his Jeopardy! hosting and will transfer it to big bang theory star Mayim Bialik, who previously co-hosted the show with Jennings following the death of longtime host and Canadian Alex Trebek in 2020.
