A junior from Princeton University...

Erica Greil

Do you think your major will give you an advantage in the College Championship?
My major is anthropology with certificates in African studies and linguistics, and I don't know that that will be an advantage. I know a lot about cultures and other people, but not a lot about facts.

What will you do with your winnings?
Um, if I win, I will probably put a big chunk in the bank. I would love to--I spent time in Rwanda before--er, in the middle of college, and I'd love to go back to Rwanda and start a scholarship fund for some of the girls I worked with at the boarding school. And then with money left over, I want to get LASIK and go to as many Jonas Brothers concerts as I can.

What's your motivation for being on the show?
Um, my motivation for being on Jeopardy! is... I'm not--I'm not--I'm honestly not sure. I think I just thought it would be a really fun experience. I took the online test. I went to the in-person audition. And I got the call on a farm. And was like, "Well, I might as well--might as well accept."

Show your school spirit and tune in!
