Anthony Valente

Hi, I'm Anthony from the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament.

How did you prepare for today's show?
To prepare for today's tournament, I watched the show on TV and kept score, and I played the computer game.

What is your favorite Jeopardy! category?
My favorite Jeopardy! category is GEOGRAPHY.

Do you have any career plans?
Yes. Uh, my career plans--I would like to become a doctor.

What do you do for fun?
For fun, I like to read and run.

How did you find out that you were going to be on Jeopardy!?
I found out that I was going to be on Jeopardy! while I was away at the state cross country meet. I had called my mother to tell her that I had gotten to the hotel all right, and she told me that a letter had come from Jeopardy!, and I almost fainted.
