An assistant professor from Columbia, Missouri...

Chris Mazurek

What will you do with this round's winnings?
I don't know what I'll do with this round's winnings. Uh, I'll probably buy something nice and pretty for myself and for my wife. Um, but, um, beyond that, retirement fund... pay down some debt... You know, standard kind of things, I guess--nothin' too exciting.

Does your job as a psychology professor give you an edge over the competition?
Everybody here's real bright, and, uh, as a professor--uh, I do teach in college--perhaps I have a slight advantage in that I'm academically involved on a daily basis. Uh, but, y'know, it's nothing that you can't get in with some good studying, anyway. So... I wish I could say I could psyche people out, but I'm not sure I really can.

How has your life changed since appearing on Jeopardy!?
Uh, since appearing on the show, my life has changed primarily by winning the money. Uh, I was able to put a down payment on a new house, and, uh, that was a huge thing for us, me and my family.

Do you ever visit
Uh, every once in a while I do visit I was actually hoping to find out about the Tournament of Champions before I got the call. [Laughs] Uh, but, um, yeah, I do go there a fair bit.
