Pam Mueller

Hi, I'm Pam Mueller, and you're watching me on jeopardy.com.

How did you prepare for being a contestant?
Um, in preparing for today's tournament, I watched the show a lot, and I looked over a couple books, but honestly, none of the stuff I put effort into studying came up in my show. [Smiles]

How long have you been watching Jeopardy!?
I started watching it regularly in high school and I've been watching it therefore for about... 8 years.

Have you been recognized since being on Jeopardy!?
Since appearing on the show, I... I've been recognized a few times in public, mostly after the reruns in the summer, believe it or not. I've gotten some e-mails from some people who wanted to congratulate me. It's been nice.

GOOD LUCK, Pam!
