Travis Troyer

Do you have a Jeopardy! nickname?
Yes, Alex actually did give me a nickname on the show. On the third show when I was introduced, Alex called me "T.T." It's a name that's stuck. Now, everybody's just, instead of calling me "Travis," calls me "T.T."

What is your most memorable moment on Jeopardy!
There were--the most things that stand out, the things that people remind me of the most on my first appearance would be the wrong answers that I got. I gave some wild answers, saying a baseball weighs .9 ounces, when actually a ping-pong ball does. Saying there were 96 trombones in the big parade instead of 76, so... Just added a few for inflation.

Is there anything that you would like to clear up?
Yes, there--there are definitely a few things I want to set the record straight on. My parents own a liquor store, and I didn't buzz in on time on a question about ouzo, a Greek liqueur. I did know the answer to that question. I want everybody to know that. I'm not letting my parents down with that. I also had a crazy answer about an egg sandwich and I called it an Omwich. Dunkin' Donuts used to serve Omwiches, so I think that answer is correct, and I was just giving a promotional plug to Dunkin' Donuts, so...

How did you prepare for the game?
I didn't do too much special to prepare this time, I've just been watching the show, and just trying to relax and have a great time. It's just a blast to be out here.
