A senior from Antioch, California...

Wes Kovarik

What happened when you found out you were going to be a contestant?
Well, when I found out I was going to be on Jeopardy!, I was at home and my mom came rushing in with a FedEx envelope, and just told me to rip it open, and I pulled out the papers, and there it said I was going to be on the Teen Tournament.

If you had a "dream Jeopardy! category," what would it be?
Well, my dream Jeopardy! category would probably be something about CANADA, or... STAR TREK.

How did you prepare for today?
I watched the show to prepare, and read the new Jeopardy! Quiz Book, and just watched TV a lot.

What are you most excited about today?
I'm most excited today to meet Alex.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In ten years I see myself working for the Foreign Service, or at an environmental nonprofit agency.
