A junior at Boston University from Danvers, Massachusetts...

Erin McLean

What does playing in the Tournament of Champions mean to you?
Um, it's incredible to be here at the Tournament of Champions. Um, I never thought I was going to win the College Championship, so just being back is just an incredible feeling.

Did you learn anything from your previous appearance that will help you this time?
In this tournament, I'll be a little more prepared since I was on the college tournament. Um, I know what the tournament setting is like. I know sort of how to bet for a wildcard, and I know a little bit more about the process. I'm hoping--hoping it'll be a little bit of an advantage, but I'm not so sure.

Have you spent any of your previous winnings?
The only thing I did with my winnings was I bought a car, uh, which was a big purchase, uh, but it wasn't a new car, just new to me. And I'm also paying off my debt from school, which isn't exciting, but necessary.

Did you prepare more or less this time around?
Oh, I prepared a lot more this time around. Um, Tournament of Champions has a lot harder questions than the college tournament, so hopefully I'll be ready.
