A personal success coach from San Diego, California...

Max Levaren

What is your most memorable moment on Jeopardy!?
During my third game, Alex asked me a question that I was totally unprepared for. He asked me what a personal success coach was, and, as a coach, what I could do for him. Thank God I belong to Toastmasters, because I was able to think on my feet.

What was your answer?
He asked me what I would do to enhance his life, and I said, "Alex, you're already there."

How did you prepare for the show?
I watched the game on TV and practiced with the air buzzer.

Your first appearance on Jeopardy!
Well, nothing earth-shattering, but while my game was airing, I was spotted at an outdoor taco stand in Tijuana. Somebody came up to me and said, "Are you Max? How did you get on Jeopardy!?"
