A lobbyist from Brooklyn, New York...

Justin Bernbach

How did you celebrate your original run on the show?
Well, I had some friends, uh, get together for the first game, which, um, they were pretty sure I won based on the preparations for the party. But, uh, after that, I just kinda low-keyed it, and, uh, watched at home with the family, and, uh, didn't spend much of the money.

Has anyone asked for your autograph or recognized you from your Jeopardy! appearance?
Nobody's asked me for my autograph. Um, a few people have recognized me, more during the run. I went to a Met game on the night of my seventh show, and was recognized by--plenty of people was calling a lot of questions. "Are you the Jeopardy! guy?" I said, "Yes", and since it was a 7 o'clock start, and that's when it airs in New York, they were asking me whether I won or not, so I, uh, let them know, and... since then, just once or twice, really.

What advice do you have for future Jeopardy! contestants?
Anybody tells you you can't study for Jeopardy!, ignore them. Um, if you have three weeks before you know you're coming on, study. Watch the show, uh, do whatever you can, because I think that that really made a difference. You know, on this show, one or two questions that you get right that you wouldn't have known if you hadn't studied, that's the difference in the game, often. Yep.
