A junior at the University of Maryland from New York, New York...

Alison Jenik

What is your major?
I'm a junior art history and classics major.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In ten years hopefully I'll be working for the D.A.'s office somewhere in New York City where I grew up--either Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and I'll be successful, successfully doing my job there. And... I don't know--that's my career ambition so far. I don't know about everything else.

If you win the $100,000 what will you do with it?
Uh, I'm going to travel Europe, buy lots of new clothes and stuff. Um... I don't know. Travelling, buying lots of, like, things that normally I wouldn't buy, like nice clothes. Um... I already got a car, so no car. I don't know. Travelling is definitely, like, number 1.

If you could invent a Jeopardy! category, what would it be?
ART HISTORY. Because I'm really good at it. So I want to get them all right, so an ART HISTORY category.

If you could challenge a past Jeopardy! contestant, who would it be?
Ken, of course Ken. Ken and Brad. And, yeah. Those two.
