Who's nicer, your teacher or Alex Trebek?
I think my teacher might be nicer than Alex Trebek.

How did you study for Jeopardy!?
Um, I got a lot of textbooks from my 4th grade and 5th grade teachers, and then just read through them, kind of skimming, just picking up important information.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I would like to be the Federal Reserve chairman when I grow up.

What's the best thing about being a kid?
The best thing about being a kid is you can read a lot, and you get to play, and you don't have to do a forty-hour workday. You get more like a 35.
