Andrew Rostan

What are you doing now that you've graduated?
I finished my last semester of college here, and I also work in the entertainment industry, so I came in January, and I haven't left.

Did being a Jeopardy! champion help you in your job search?
Being a Jeopardy! champ, it actually got me one interview when I started looking for a new job after I was fired from my first one. And he said--the interviewer basically said, um, "You're here because I'm a Jeopardy! junkie, and I saw that" at the time I was the seventh-biggest winner of all time, and it knocked him off. It's still on my resume. If I--when I need another job.

Have people treated you differently since your appearance?
Nobody treated me any--any differently. I mean, people were all very proud, very impressed. But, I'm still--I'm still me, and I like--I like still being me, so I'm glad I'm not treated differently. I guess the most surprising thing was that random strangers at places like the Grove and the Getty Center and the public library just will recognize me and say "We loved you! We saw you on the show! You were so cool!"
