A senior from Kingsport, Tennessee...

Forrest Sturgill

How did you react when you found out you'd be on Jeopardy!?
When I found out I'd be on Jeopardy!, I didn't believe 'em at first. Uh, a woman had to keep tellin' me over and over again, so finally I believed her, and I called my mama, my papa, my Aunt Marilyn, everyone.

What's the best part of being a teen?
The best part about being a teen is that you don't have to have a job yet, and so you can kinda just relax, and when you do get money from, like, babysitting or something, you don't have to pay it for bills and car insurance and stuff.

Are you the best Jeopardy! player at your house?
No, my dad wins! All the time! [Laughs] He's a whole lot better at it than me!
