Mark Brown

What color is the Jaguar you won?
Uh, they call it topaz. Kinda champagne.

What is your most memorable moment on Jeopardy!?
Um, I thought I had a dramatic moment when I, I think in game 4, I had to bet all my money on a Daily Double, and it came to me at the last second--the answer came to me at the last second. And I made a fool of myself answering the question about, uh, Xena: Warrior Princess, just to get my wife's goat.

What was unique about your compeition?
Uh, just that I don't think they had had a five-game winner for a long time before that, and I was definitely the first five-game winner of Season 19.

How did you prepare for the show?
Yeah, I was pretty obsessive about, uh, studying, uh, different topics, and looking things up on the Internet, and compiling notebooks to, to study again--I got about ten notebooks filled up that way--and I was trying to brush up on old movies, and I filled up about 50 cassette tapes of old movies.

Season 19 5-time champion: $68,094 + a topaz Jaguar X-TYPE V6.
