Halifax’s Mattea Roach won her 21st Danger! game Tuesday night, taking home another $29,599 USD, thanks in part to a Final Jeopardy! idea about O Canada.
The 23-year-old now has the fifth longest streak in TV quiz show history.

To move to number 4 on the list, Roach would have to match James Holzhauer’s 32-game streak.
Roach is also the most successful Canadian to ever compete on the show.
On Tuesday night’s show, Roach dominated her competitors and correctly answered the last clue, which asked which French version of an anthem title contains the phrase “terre de nos aïeux.”
The answer? Oh Canada.
