A writer from Tokyo, Japan...

Tom Baker

Has your popularity increased since your appearance on Jeopardy!?
Uh, I don't know yet, because no--my shows just ran recently, so no one in Tokyo has seen it yet, and all the people I know in this country live on the East Coast, so... I'm sure it will happen, but, uh... I haven't run into that so far.

How much money did you win last time?
Uh, just a few thousand dollars over a hundred thousand, which was a thrill.

Who is your toughest competition?
Uh, I think just about everybody would be, but, uh, I'm not worried about that too much, because I feel like a winner just to be here, which is how I felt starting the regular season shows, and I'm just going to have a good time.

How did you prepare for the tournament?
Uh, not very much. Uh, I did study opera a bit, because that's something that seems to come up fairly often that I know nothing about. But, uh, now I know a little bit about it, so hopefully I'll do fairly well in those categories.
