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

How did you prepare for being a contestant?
Uh, I didn't do too much--[apparent edit splice] but, you know.

Have you been recognized since being on Jeopardy!?
Uh, not too much. New York's a big city, and so you have to do a lot to make a splash there.

Do you ever play Jeopardy! online?
I don't. In a word, no.

GOOD LUCK, Rick!
