A high school English and literacy teacher from Bakersfield, California...

Viki Radden

Students: "Good luck, Ms. Radden, from South High in Bakersfield!"

My name is Viki Radden; I teach ninth and tenth grade at South High School in Bakersfield, California.

Will the subject you teach help you on Jeopardy!?
I hope the subject I teach will help me on Jeopardy!--I'm counting on that.

What was your reaction when you found out you made it on Jeopardy!?
I was... overwhelmed, because I wanted to be on the show for more than 20 years. So I was very excited to get to be on Jeopardy!, especially for the Teachers Tournament.

What do you love most about Jeopardy!?
I love everything about Jeopardy!--I watch it every night. I would never miss it. And to think that I could get to be on it, it's a real honor.

Any plans for your winnings?
Yes, if I--if I--whatever money I happen to win--I'd like to buy a car that's actually big enough for me and my pets, and to pay off some bills.

Tune in! You might learn a thing or two!
