Bob Fleenor

Hi, I'm Bob Fleenor, and you're watching me on jeopardy.com.

How long have you been watching Jeopardy!?
I've been watching since the very beginning with Art Fleming as host in 1964, and of course the current version with Alex Trebek since 1984.

Do you ever play Jeopardy! online?
I have. I haven't had a chance to play the new version, at least multiplayer. I've played the single version, and it's very colorful and fun. I was a fan of the old version too, played that for a number of years, and I find it very enjoyable and a challenge.

How did you prepare for being a contestant?
Well, basically, by, uh, by watching the show. Also by studying the, uh, the Quiz Book series of, uh, Jeopardy! boards. Uh, basically three years' worth of Jeopardy! games are compressed in several volumes, and it gives you, uh, you know, good practice in the material, and speed reading clues, which is very important in the game.

Have you been recognized since being on Jeopardy!?
Well, in my own hometown, a town of about 15,000 people. Uh, they have really been incredibly supportive and wonderful through this entire experience, and in fact, uh, last weekend I was, uh, the guest of honor in the, uh, Apple Harvest Parade in our hometown, which is the biggest party Martinsburg throws.

GOOD LUCK, Bob!
