What happened when you found out you were going to be on the show?
I was really excited. My mom said that it was the time that she saw me jump the highest, and I screamed really loud.

What are you most looking forward to today?
Um... I don't know. I think it will just be fun to be on the set and actually, like, "be there," because I've watched the show so many times and then actually be there.

Did your friends or family give you any advice?
My dad was telling me how I should bet on Final Jeopardy! We did all these math problems. So I hope I can remember.

What do you think makes a great Jeopardy! player?
Um... I think they have to be smart, but not, like, overdo it, because there's a point where you just kinda haveta stop because you're not going to learn a lot more. And you have to be fast at the buzzer.

What will you do with the money if you win big?
Save it for college.

Where do you see yourself ten years from now?
Ten years from now I'll probably be in college.
