A senior from Belleville, Illinois...

Gabe Orlet

What's the best part of being a teen?
Uh, I think the best part is that you're kind of discovering your independence, and finding out, y'know, all these new opportunities in the world, and you getting to, really, uh, grow as a--as a person, and starting your full potential, I think.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Uh, in ten years, I hope to be somewhere, uh, working, uh, with the State Department in Washington, D.C., uh, doing something at maybe Foreign Service or something where I can travel around the world a lot. That's what I hope to do.

Do you have a dream Jeopardy! category?
My dream Jeopardy! category, I would say, is SCI-FI NOVELS. I'm really big into sci-fi, so [shrugs] that's my thing.

How do you plan to spend your winnings?
I want to buy a--first, a really nice guitar, probably the most expensive guitar I can find, uh, even if I don't wanna play it, just to have it, and, uh, I wanna go, uh, on a nice trip to Peru--the Andes. That's a really nice place, so...
