A college student originally from Seattle, Washington...

Ben Bishop

Uh, I'm Ben Bishop from Seattle, Washington.

How did you celebrate your original run on Jeopardy!?
Uh, all my roommates helped me study when I was on originally, so I took 'em all out to a nice dinner and, uh, we had a good time with it.

What is it like being back on stage?
Uh, once you hit the stage, you stop remembering a lot of what happens. Part of it is just so many things hitting you at the same time. You have to answer the question, and buzz in, and remember what categories are up there, and keep track of the score, so there's a lot of things coming at you at once. It's--it's overwhelming, I think.

Have you studied the competition.
I haven't. I--I won pretty late in the season, so I don't know any of the other people there. They all know me, though, so they--they know who I am, and, I--I have this sort of deer-in-the-headlights look when I meet them.

Place your bets and tune in!
