A junior from Tucson, Arizona...

Kate Wadman

What was your reaction when you found out you made it on Jeopardy!?
I was really excited, but also super nervous, because I have this, like, little secret--I think everyone here is just a little bit smarter than me. But we'll see how it goes. [Laughs]

What are you going to say to Alex when you meet him?
I'm gonna tell him that my mom is, like, his biggest fan ever. She loves Alex Trebek, and that's the main reason she wanted me to try out, actually. [Laughs]

Any plans for your winnings?
I don't know! I'm probably going to do something really nice for my little brother, because he's, like, my best friend. And, after that, I'll probably have to save a lot of the money for college, unfortunately, but, y'know...

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Um, I really want to be involved in diplomacy. I'm looking at getting a degree in international studies or relations. So I want to be doing something to help countries interact peacefully.
