A junior from Dix Hills, New York...

Jonathan Reinstein

Jonathan has been watching Jeopardy! for several years, and he remembers that the final question from the first episode that he saw was, "Alphabetically, who was the first person to sign the declaration of Independence?" The answer was "John Adams," Jonathan recalls. Little did this practicing magician know that one day he would be a contestant on Jeopardy!, and in the very city that the Declaration of Independence was drafted. Jonathan thoroughly enjoyed visiting Philadelphia and seeing all of the historical monuments. His main interest is in the writing of plays, a hobby for which he has already won an award, but he also happens to do a mean impersonation of Darth Vader.
