A twelve-year-old from West Hills, California...

Ethan Waldman

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Um, I see myself probably finishing college, maybe going to grad school, and probably trying to write a book, um, because that's--I want to be an author, so that's what I want to do.

What's your favorite subject in school?
Um, probably history, because I both like the teacher, and I find it really interesting, the subject.

Who was the first person you told that you were going to be on Jeopardy!?
Well, my mom actually knew before I did, because she got the call. It--um, but the first person I actually told was my dad, a-and he--he was really surprised and happy.

What makes you more nervous, playing Jeopardy! or going to the principal's office?
Probably going to the principal's office, because playing Jeopardy!, I know that I'm going to win just by making it this far, but going to the principal's office isn't usually a happy experience.
