Regina Robbins

What was your reaction when you were invited to the Tournament of Champions?
Um, it was kinda relief, actually, because I-I had a feeling that I might be, and so then the speculation was over. Um, so that I knew that, y'know, that was happening, and I also felt glad, because I had been a little too depressed to--to watch Jeopardy! on a regular basis, thinking that I would not get to play it anymore. [Laughs] So, um, knowing that I would be back in the studio was really cool.

Did you learn anything from your previous appearance that will help you in this tournament?
Um, I learned that if I'm having a brain cramp, I should just respect that, and not think that between the time that I ring in and the time that Alex calls on me that the brain cramp will go away. Because, it didn't. Um, so there's at least one wonderful moment of me standing there with my mouth open, looking kind of confused. Um, so I hope that won't happen again.

Having won before, are you more likely to take bigger risks this time?
Absolutely not. Um, I think that part of the reason that I won all those times is 'cause I didn't make a lot of wrong answers, um, and I just thought it was better to lay off if I wasn't a hundred percent sure. Um, so, and, y'know, this time I'm playing against really good players, so if I don't know the answer, probably one of them does. [Laughs] Um, and that there won't be a pause in the show.
