A chemical engineer from Houston, Texas...

Susan Mitchell

How do you plan to spend your winnings?
Well, I did recently buy a house. Um, so, certainly any money could go toward the house--that would be helpful. Um, and also, since I'm just beginning with my career and a new location, um, it would help with the further process of settling in.

Does your scientific background help you compete on Jeopardy!?
Um, well, the first time I was on Jeopardy!, not a great deal of scientific categories came up, but I think that, uh, my scientific background helps me, um, to think critically and to think quickly, um, about the different questions, and helps with knowledge recall.

Did you do anything different to prepare for Jeopardy! this time?
Well, the first ti--the first time I was on, I didn't, um, have a great deal of time to prepare, because I was busy, um, with many of, uh, the last-minute school details that I was trying to take care of before I graduated. And this time, um, I had a little bit more time. I was working hard at my current job, but I also had some time in the evening with which to review a few things.

Do you ever visit jeopardy.com?
Um, I do sometimes go on jeopardy.com to see, um, the different announcements, and also to see, um, announcements for, um, the online test, so that friends of mine who have seen me on TV, um, can go take the test and maybe have their shot at, um, being on Jeopardy!

Have people treated you differently since your appearance?
Um, a little bit. I think that being a new hire, um, with my company, I did get treated, um, with a little bit more attention, because of the Jeopardy! episode. Um, some people, um, got to meet me for the first time because they heard that I was on Jeopardy!
