A twelve-year-old from Lexington, Kentucky...

Will Walters

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years, I'm probably going to be at MIT, in the theoretical physics program.

What od you hope to do with that?
Um, I hope to get a job in theoretical physics so I can make a lot of money.

Are you the Jeopardy! champion at your house?
Oh, of course. Of course I'm the Jeopardy! champion.

How did you find out that you were going to be on Jeopardy!?
Well, actually I wasn't the first person to find out. I was at school when my mom got the call. So, my mom likes to surprise me with stuff. So when I got home, there was a big cake waiting for me. And she told me that I was on Jeopardy! So it was really fun.

How did your friends react?
When my friends reacted, they were really surprised, except for this one person who didn't believe me.

"He wants to follow in the footsteps of his idols, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, and become a theoretical physicist. From Lexington, Kentucky, let's greet..."
