A commercial real estate executive from Pleasantville, New York...

Arthur Gandolfi

Has your popularity increased since your appearance on Jeopardy!?
The only person who really recognized me was my coffee guy in the morning. He thought there was just someone who looked like me on Jeopardy!, but I finally convinced him I was him and now he goes on and on about it every morning. Other than that, a few people from work have recognized me, but not really a whole lot. I've been too busy with work to really do anything different. I haven't even taken a vacation yet, so...

How much money did you win last time?
A... hundred and thirty-seven three. $137,300.

What did you do with your winnings?
Probably saving it for a down payment on an apartment, which, in New York, it probably doesn't even cover the down payment, but... [Laughs] It's a start!

Did you do a lot of preparations for today?
Studied a few categories I wasn't so great at. Like literature and science. Been reading through the almanac. But not a whole lot, not too much. I figure if it's not in your brain already, you're not really going to recall it when the pressure's on.

What categories are you hoping for?
Anything history, military history, and the older the better, I think. I think I do better pre-19th century than I do anything modern.
