A 12-year-old from San Ramon, California...

Nicole Tantoco

I'm Nicole, and you're watching me on jeopardy.com from Jeopardy! Back to School Week.

How long have you been watching Jeopardy!?
I've been watching it since I was pretty much born, because my mom was even watching it while I was still in her, and ever since then, my mom even said that when I was nine months old, I was already dancing, kinda, to the tune of Final Jeopardy!

What is your favorite category?
It would probably be... CAPITALS, and things that have to do with other parts of the world, 'cause I like to also learn about other cultures.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to become a pediatrician. And I want to graduate from Stanford. [Big smile]

Be sure to tune in and root for Nicole!
