A senior at Duke University from Knoxville, Tennessee...

Greer Mackebee

What more difficult, preparing for finals or for Jeopardy!?
It's definitely tougher preparing for Jeopardy! than finals. On the finals, you know what the--what there might be. Jeopardy!, it's a whole world of information.

Where do you hope to be in ten years?
In ten years, I hope to be working in Washington, D.C. as an attorney.

How does it feel to be a semifinalist?
My heart's still beating, but it feels really good. Um, it's been a lifelong dream to be on the show, and... couldn't have a better first game.

How did you prepare for the College Championship?
I spent a lot of time online looking at Wikipedia and Sporcle. I bought an intro opera book. Haven't used it yet, but we'll see.

Any shout outs to your friends and family back home?
Say hey to all my friends in Durham at Duke, and everyone back from Webb. Hope you all are having a great start to the semester.

Anyone you'd like to thank?
Definitely my parents. Um, they flew out here with me, and they've been with me every step of the way.

Tell us about your strategy.
Strategy is just try not to freeze and not to miss.
