A college student from Manchester, Vermont...

Keith Williams

Has your life changed since your appearance on Jeopardy!?
Well, uh... I'm now known as "the Jeopardy! kid" around campus, and, uh... I haven't spent too much money, but I bought a cool pair of headphones with my money. And that's about all I've spent money on, I guess, but... It's been really exciting to be recognized on the street by total strangers.

How much money did you win last time?
I won $50,000 and a new car. A Volvo S60R.

How did you prepare for the tournament?
Um, I just went over some stuff that I didn't know, I guess. I just kinda looked through some stuff. A lot of kids quizzed me with mythology, which I really wasn't comfortable with. And other things. So it was kind of a learning experience and I was helped out by some friends.

What was the best part of your original Jeopardy! experience?
Winning, I guess, uh... [Laughs] Just having a good time. And, uh... Getting to be on Jeopardy! was a dream come true.
