Christine Valada

Has anyone asked for your autograph or recognized you from your Jeopardy! appearance?
No. People don't ask me for my autograph, but people have recognized me. "Didn't I see you on Jeopardy!?" You know? And, uh, it's been really cool.

What did you do with your winnings from your original appearance?
Uh, actually, a lot of it's still sitting in the bank, but I did go out and I joined Bob Harris's Kiva group, and I am making microloans around the world to make the world a better place.

Having won before, are you more likely to take bigger risks this time?
I think that when you get to the Tournament of Champions, you have to take bigger risks than you do in a regular game. Um, I think there's no downside to taking bigger risks in--in the Tournament of Champions. And there's a real downside to taking a big risk in a regular game.

Are you more or less nervous to play this time?
I thought I was doing pretty well until this morning when I got up. [Laughs] So... at least I slept last night!
