A junior at Miami University of Ohio from Cincinnati, Ohio...

Erin Bogart

Hi, I'm Erin Bogart from Miami University, and you're watching me on jeopardy.com.

How did you find out you were chosen as a contestant?
I found out I was going to be on Jeopardy! when the local news station came to Miami University and pretended that they were there for a completely different reason. We did a 45-minute interview--faked, of course--and then at the end they surprised me by telling me I was going to be on Jeopardy! [Laughs]

What made you decide to try out for JEOPARDY!?
Um, I heard it on the news, and since they were actually being done in Cincinnati, and I'm from Cincinnati, I thought, "Why not? I've watched it forever. I may as well try out."

Do you ever play JEOPARDY! online?
I have played Jeopardy! online, and I thought it was harder. [Laughs] It really scared me when I--when I knew I was going to audition, and--and the questions were much harder than I was expecting.

What's your major?
I am a psychology major with a minor in family studies. I think I'm one of the only people here with one major. Um, I'm not sure what I want to do yet; I'm not even sure if I want to go to graduate school, so it's a little up in the air right now.

How did you prepare for today's game?
Uh, I bought some high school review books, like review of American history, review of literature. I looked over 'em a little, but I thought, either I know it or I don't, and it's probably in there somewhere. [Laughs] So I didn't study that hard.

Win one for Miami University, Erin!
