Deborah Fitzgerald

I'm Deborah Fitzgerald from McLean, Virginia.

How many shows did you win on your first run on Jeopardy!?
I was on five times and won four of those times.

What is your most memorable moment from your run on Jeopardy!?
Well, I got a lot of really good makeup tips from the ladies that did our makeup before the show. That was one of the most fun parts of being on Jeopardy!

Will playing Jeopardy! in Las Vegas affect your wagering?
Everybody's gambling around here, and I know there's going to be a temptation, maybe, to gamble more than I would have if this was shot back in California.

Is there anything you'd like to share that you think Jeopardy! fans might want to know?
It was how quickly time passes on television. When you watch the show, it seems like it lasts a whole half hour. When you're actually participating, it all goes by in a flash.

Place your bets and tune in!
