Hi, I'm Crystal! Watch me on Kids Week.
What was your reaction when you found out that you were going to be on Jeopardy!?
Well, we were at Dale's, which is a restaurant, a barbeque restaurant, and I figured we were there to celebrate my mom and dad's anniversary, which was also that day, and then this news crew came up and asked me if I was Crystal Durham, and what was running through my mind was just, "Ohmigosh, what did I do?" And, so then they told me, and I just couldn't--I was just speechless, and I couldn't say anything, and afterwards my aunt told me that next time somebody surprises me I have to act, like, surprised to people and be like "HUAAAAAAA!"
How did you prepare for the game?
Well, I wa--my mom found this presidents game that helps you learn all the presidents in order, and all the stuff they did, and stuff like that, so we were messing around with that for a little while, and my dad printed off this thing from off the internet about the state capitals. And, like, state, nat--the state slogan and stuff like that.
What would you like to be when you grow up?
Uh, I either want to be a lawyer, because they make a lot of money, and 'cause I like arguing with people, or, and I want to teach Irish step dancing in my spare time.
Who is your role model?
My role m--this is kinda weird, because my role model's, like, two years older than I am, but my role model is my friend Tierney. Because she's really smart, and she's good at dancing, and... I don't know, she's just a really nice person.
"She would like to be an Irish stepdancing teacher, because dancing is so much fun, or a lawyer, because she likes to debate..."
