Canadian ``Jeopardy!'' phenom Mattea Roach is seeking a 17th straight win on an episode airing tonight.
    
Roach, who grew up in Halifax, extended her remarkable run last night on the TV quiz show.
    
She has the eighth-longest streak in the quiz show's history.
    
To move up the list, the 23-year-old will need 19 wins to tie with David Madden and Jason Zuffranieri.
    
As of Tuesday's game, Roach had collected a total haul of US$368,981.
    
She has also earned a spot in the show's Tournament of Champions, which is to air in the fall, and holds the longest win streak by a Canadian contestant.
