How did you find out you were chosen as a contestant?
I found out one morning when I was sitting in my dorm room and the, uh, the Federal Express man came and dropped off a package, and, uh, my roommate and I immediately started celebrating.

How did you prepare for today's game?
I had a c--nothing formal, but people would walk around campus and ask me questions and just stop me in the hallways and ask me what the capital of Armenia was, things like that.

Did you ever play JEOPARDY! online?
I do play Jeopardy! online once in a while. I played about twice. And I didn't do very well, either!
