A junior from Lincolnshire, Illinois...

Zach Blumenfeld

How did you react when you found out you'd be on Jeopardy!?
Oh, man, I was so excited, I just... I was on the phone, and, uh, my mom called me from Lake Tahoe, actually, and, uh, I was at camp, and she said there was only one reason she would be calling, so when I got her message, I had a feeling I knew what it was about, but, I mean, when I found out I was still stoked. I mean, this is just the opportunity of a lifetime. I'm so excited.

Do you have a dream Jeopardy! category?
Well, my dream category would probably be WORLD CAPITALS, because I love geography. It's my favorite subject.

How will you celebrate if you win the tournament?
Well, if I win the tournament, I'm all about, uh, hanging out with my friends, so I think I'll probably throw a party if my parents will let me. And have a great time with all them, and it'll be... just an awesome experience for everyone around.
