A twelve-year-old from Erlanger, Kentucky...

Dillon McCormick

What's your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject in school is probably world history and geography.

How did you react when you found out you were selected for Kids Week?
When I found out I was gonna be on Jeopardy!--I'm a--a--don't ride a bus, my dad picks me up at school--so, he picked me up in school, and since you're not allow--really supposed to tell anyone, he said, "Okay, you have to be really quiet, but you got on Jeopardy!" I'm like, "Okay." So we got out--in--into the parking lot, walked to the car, and by the time we got into the car, I just, like, started screaming, I did a little dance in my seat, I was really, really excited.

Are you the Jeopardy! champion of your household?
Uh, it depends. I mean, usually my dad and mom are better than me by a little bit, just because they have a little bit more knowledge. They're both teachers. So...

If you could pick any Jeopardy! category, what would it be?
If I could pick any Jeopardy! category, it would be IMAGINARY LANDS, because I really like the worlds that fantasy books are set in.

"A politician, maybe. An archaeologist, perhaps. Or a psychologist like grandpa. He has lots of time to decide. From Erlanger, Kentucky, say hi to..."
