An eleven-year-old from Orem, Utah...

Aria Gerson

How did you react when you found out you were selected for Kids Week?
Well, um, when I found out I was gonna be on Jeopardy!, I was coming home from school, and my dad was on the phone with my mom, who'd gotten the call at work. And so, my dad just handed the phone to me, and I was talking to my mom, and she's like, "Guess what? I just got a very exciting phone call. And you're gonna be on Jeopardy!" I'm like, "Oh, my gosh!" And then, I told this girl and my sister, who were in the car with me right away, and probably if I wasn't in the car, I'd be running around screaming. And I was super excited.

If you could pick any Jeopardy! category, what would it be?
If I could pick any category, it would be AMERICAN HISTORY, because I just love American history.

What did you do to prepare for Kids Week?
Well, um, there's this web site, and it has a lot of, uh, past Kids Week questions, so I looked at those. I also read, um, a kids' almanac, and I've been watching the show every night for a long time. So...
