Kerry Breitenbach

How have you spent your past Jeopardy! winnings?
Well the--uh, the best thing that I did with my Jeopardy! winnings was buy a hot tub... so I've been having a wonderful time with that.

What do you think makes a great Jeopardy! player?
Uh, in order to be a great Jeopardy! player, you need to know a lot about a lot of things. I think, uh, doing crossword puzzles is some of the best preparation for that.

What categories are you hoping for?
There aren't any real categories that I'm hoping for; there are a lot that I'm hoping not to see.

How has your life changed since your appearance on Jeopardy!?
I've been treated a little differently as a result of my Jeopardy! appearances. Uh, when I provide an answer to a question, or, y'know, make some sort of assertion of fact, people are a lot more likely to believe me without question. Which, sometimes, is not a good thing to do!

What do you plan to do with the money this time around?
I don't really have any plans yet for any winnings that I might get on this tournament. Uh, but, I am hoping to do a little more traveling than I've been able to do in the last year.

2006 Tournament of Champions quarterfinalist: $5,000.
Season 21 5-time champion: $90,400 + $2,000.

Beat Anne Boyd's $86,600 to become the top female non-tournament money-winner. (This record was surpassed by Maria Wenglinsky in her fourth game with $111,700.)
