A college student from Katy, Texas...

Kyle Hale

Your first appearance on Jeopardy!
Uh, my first appearance on Jeopardy! was actually the College Jeopardy! tournament, and, um, I finished and I won, and so I won $51,300 and a new Volvo S60 Turbo car.

What is your most memorable moment on Jeopardy!?
Uh, I think my most memorable moment was, um, when the category, uh, was GEOGRAPHY, that starts with "A"--and it had that in the clue--and for the first answer I guessed "the Mediterranean Sea." So... I would say that was probably, uh, my most memorable moment, at least, for people back home. I get reminded about that one still.

Are you nervous about the game?
Uh, I think I'm a little more nervous, the stakes're a little bit higher, um, the competition's probably going to be a little bit tougher, um, but I pretty much did the same thing I did last time, so I hope everything turns out the same as last time.

Do you have any special strategy for today's game?
Uh, not particularly, but, uh, I was gracious enough to receive a nice world almanac shortly before I came here from my mom with a little nudging, um, and, uh, I opened it, read a few pages, so... hopefully that'll help out a little bit.

2005 Ultimate Tournament of Champions Round 1 winner: $25,000.
2003 Tournament of Champions quarterfinalist: $5,000.
2002 College Championship winner: $51,300 + a 2003 Volvo S60 Turbo + a trophy.
