After her 23-day winning streak, Mattea missed the mark just by $1, leaving fans shocked. However, the Canada-based tutor flaunts the fifth-longest streak on the game show ever, with a total of $560,983 earnings. She lost the Final Jeopardy round to Danielle Mauer, a Georgia-based marketing manager, leaving fans speechless.

More so, the host for the week, Ken Jennings, has garnered the fans’ attention with several wishing him to take over as the game show’s permanent host.

As fans experienced the knockout final round, Mattea was in the lead with $19,200 to her name. She wagered $3601 from her winnings but failed to answer correctly. On the other hand, Danielle went into Final Jeopardy! with $11,400, of which she wagered $4200. Fortunately, she was able to answer the question correctly.

As per The Sun, Mattea’s wager brought her total to $15,599, which was just $1 shy of Danielle’s total. The final round category was ‘USA’ and about the international airport in Georgia, which is Danielle’s hometown. Therefore, she had the upper hand and responded with ‘Hartsfield Jackson.’
