A research scientist from Albany, New York...

Paul Glaser

How have you spent your winnings?
The question of whether or not I've spent my winnings is kind of interesting because, uh, right now I haven't received my winnings yet, because I was one of the last people from this season to make it on the show. So when I actually get them, I think we'll probably have some fun with them.

Have you mastered your buzzer technique?
I hope so, because I know I'm up against the best of the best. Anyone who doesn't know the buzzer isn't going to be here today.

How has your life changed since you appeared on Jeopardy!?
Well, it's, uh, been really exciting for me. I think, uh, I've kind of gotten in the mindset of the game at all times--I'm always looking around for trivia and playing with pens like they're buzzers and stuff like that. Um, I always think about what a great question some interesting fact would be. I've sort of been in the mindset of the game all the time since I've been on.

Does being a scientist give you an advantage when competing on the show?
I think it gives me a leg-up. Um, the fact that I'm a scientist gives me, um, sort of an advantage in science and the math categories, and sometimes I have a little bit of trouble, a little bit of trouble with things like poetry and literature, but I know enough to really kind of hold my own.

How will you celebrate if you win?
Uh, well, I think I want to really stock up my wine cellar a little bit. It's something I've been intending to do for a while. Um, I think some of the winnings from Jeopardy! would really sort of, uh, help me get kind--the kinds of wine, the kinds of cellar I've always wanted.
