A junior from Birmingham, Alabama...

Kevin Yang

Do you think being on Jeopardy! can help you get into the college of your choice?
Well, I hope being on Jeopardy! will help me get into college, but I'm just looking forward to having fun and winning some money.

What's your favorite subject in school?
Uh, my favorite school subject is probably math. Um, I'm in Calculus BC right now, and I've always had a knack for math.

Do you think that will help you on today's show?
Uh, I hope so. Uh, but what I've seen, there isn't much math, usually. But, uh, I think I'm pretty good at the other subjects, though.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Um, in ten years, I hope that I'll be doing something medical-related, or something in science, or do some research. That's what I hope, so...

Tune in to see who makes the grade and who gets schooled!


How does it feel to be a semifinalist in the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament!?
It's awesome. I was hoping for it, and, at--there was that one point where I was thinking, "Oh no, this isn't going very well." And then, I just kind of stuck with it and pulled it out.

What do you think of the contestants you faced?
Oh, they were excellent. At the beginning, like, he was at $6,000, and I was--well, I was back, then, and so, I was a bit worried, and they were excellent opponents, and, uh, I'm proud to have played against them.

Do you have any shout-outs to friends and family back home?
Uh, I'd like to say hi to all my friends back home, and, uh, Kevin, Deonne, Camden, uh, Neil, all of them.

Do you have anyone you'd like to thank?
Uh, I'd like to thank my parents, because they helped me get to the audition, they helped me get out here, helped me prepare, and I wouldn't be here without them.
