A sophomore at New York University from Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania...

Ben Goldman

What is your major?
I'm studying French, and dramatic literature, and anything I can get my hands on.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Oh, God... ten years... In ten years, that'd be 2015... I really don't know. Probably still in New York, though.

If you win the $100,000 what will you do with it?
If I win the $100,000, and I didn't have to worry about tuition, I'd like to think I could buy a car, but there's no place to park it in New York. For a parking space I'd need another $100,000.

If you could invent a Jeopardy! category, what would it be?
THE NEW YORK CITY SUBWAY SYSTEM.

Do you have a strategy?
Oh, just sort of get in the zone. Is my best strategy. Not having to think about a strategy is my strategy.

Did you do anything special to prepare for today?
I did, actually, a little. Um, just made sure I knew all of my state capitals and nicknames, and I also read up a little bit on the State of North Carolina, because they generally do tend to ask you a little bit about where you are.
