A senior from Montgomery, Alabama...

George Nelson

Hi, my name is George Nelson, and you're watching me on jeopardy.com.

When did you discover your talent for Jeopardy!?
Well, in high school we have a... a Scholar's Bowl team, and I tried out for that in tenth grade, and I actually did pretty well, so I guess that would be about when I started to realize I had a knick--knack for trivia and things like that.

Do you have career plans?
I'm not really sure what I'd like to do as a career, but, um, I'm sure I'll find out in college.

What do you do for fun?
Well, I like to play the piano, and read, and play with my dog, and go out with friends and stuff.

Are you ready for fame and fortune?
Um, I hope so!
