Hi, I'm Doug Lach, and you're watching me on jeopardy.com.

How long have you been watching Jeopardy!?
I've been watching Jeopardy!--I remember watching the old show with Art Fleming way back--but I've been watching this version of Jeopardy! ever since it came back on the air in 1984.

How did you prepare for being a contestant?
Uh, I've done a lot of looking at, uh, lists from the New York Times Almanac and some other sources like that, and I played a lot of video games to try and get my reflex speed up.

Do you ever play Jeopardy! online?
Yes, I do play Jeopardy! online--I especially like the new format.

Have you been recognized since being on Jeopardy!?
Uh, being personally--I was, uh, identified a number of times--I became famous at my company for being "the Jeopardy! guy"... Uh, also had to be the arbiter of disputes on everything from, you know, "What's the capital of Norway?" to "Which one of the Gabor sisters was on Green Acres?"

GOOD LUCK, Doug!
