A freshman from the University of California-Berkeley...

Elise Burton

How did you find out you'd be on the show?
Um, Glenn actually called me while I was at work. [Laughs] But, I answered the phone, and I was very excited.

Did you make a scene?
Uh, no, 'cause I work in a library. [Laughs]

Cheer for your school!
[Raises both arms] Go Cal!

What do you like most about Jeopardy!?
I just think it's really fun to play and see how much trivia you actually know.

How did you prepare for the show?
I didn't really do anything 'cause I had a lot of homework to do this week.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I'm not really sure. I'm a Middle Eastern Studies major, that's one of my double majors, so I could be there, or I could be here working in biology, and if all else fails I'll join the Peace Corps.
