A sophomore from Decatur, Georgia...

Kailyn LaPorte

What are you going to say to Alex when you meet him?
I'll probably be too excited to say anything!

What was your reaction when you found out you made it on Jeopardy!?
Um, uh, the local news came into my classroom to tell me I was on Jeopardy!, and I was just in shock. I didn't think I'd get on.

How did you prepare for the show?
Um, I tried to watch Jeopardy! um, often, and there's a web site that has a lot of the old questions, so I tried to go through that, and I tried to, um, go to Academic Bowl practice, and that was good practice with the buzzers.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In ten years, hopefully I will have a college degree or two, and I'll be working and not a homeless bum.
