A junior at Stanford University from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan...

Nico Martinez

What is your major?
I'm studying, uh, political science, and geology. Yeah, geology's more of a--sort of a hobby. Uh, just an interest I developed living out in California. But political science is really what I'm mainly interested in.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In ten years? I'd like to see myself working for either the State Department or the United Nations, and um, hopefully having an affect on foreign policy on some level.

If you win the $100,000 what will you do with it?
If I win the $100,000, I'd like to travel to Brazil, for sure, I've always wanted to do that. Uh, I've taken Portuguese for a couple of years, so, I think that'd be fun. And I've thought about maybe giving some of the money to, uh, to my high school, because I went to a really small high school outside Detroit, and, uh, they could, they could use a little bit of help to build their gym, so, I'm thinking about that.

If you could invent a Jeopardy! category, what would it be?
Uhh, SOUTH AMERICAN TENNIS PLAYERS.

2006 Tournament of Champions quarterfinalist: $5,000.
2005 College Champion: $100,000 + a trophy.

Won $1,000 on Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? on 2004-06-16.
