Hi, I'm Robin Carroll, five-time champion and winner of the 2000 Tournament of Champions and the 2001 International Tournament. I'm also the show's highest cumulative money-winner of all time, with a total of $214,100. Watch me play in Jeopardy!'s Million Dollar Masters tournament, but right now you're watching me on jeopardy.com.

What is your present occupation?
I'm an unemployed instructional designer.

What do you remember most from your previous appearances on Jeopardy!?
I met such wonderful people, such smart people, I had a great time, um... other than that, it's all kind of a big blur!

How has being on Jeopardy! changed your life?
Jeopardy! has changed my life in the fact that I live in a nicer house that I can afford from what I won on Jeopardy!, and also people tend to look at me as someone that can answer their questions... um, people walk up to me in museums and ask me about the exhibits, and assume I'm going to know something about it!

Any special strategy for the competition?
I'm just going to try to relax and have a great time. Do the best I can.

Do you want to say hello to anyone?
Everybody! Hello, my wonderful husband Dan! My kids, Caitlyn, Devlin, and Allison, uh, my mom, all my brothers and sisters who are in the audience for the taping, um, thanks for supporting me, I love you all!
