A senior from Livermore, California...

Lisa Ackerman

How did you prepare for the show?
I think it's really kinda hard to study for. I watched a lot of Jeopardy!, and I had a pen with, like, a clicky-top, and I practiced buzzing in a lot, and, um, I looked through the atlas a little bit, tried to learn a little bit about where countries were, rivers, that kind of stuff.

What's been the best part of this experience?
Just hanging out with the other people. I love the other contestants. That's the best part.

Is there a previous Jeopardy! champion you'd like to challenge?
Well, one of them would definitely be Alex Trebek. I wanna see how well he would do on Jeopardy! Um... Maybe Ken Jennings. Just, y'know. Just to see what it would be like. He'd beat me, but, y'know! It'd be nice to try out.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Well, I want to be an actress, so hopefully doing that, but I might do--I might be in publishing, too. That's my other backup plan.
