What's your favorite subject in school?
Um, I'm not really sure. Um, I like all the subjects, but, um, I really enjoy English, but I also really enjoy science, so...

What inspired you to want to compete in the Teen Tournament?
I always liked watching the show, so I wanted to compete, just so I could be on the show, too, and see what it was all about, so...

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I have no idea. [Laughs] Uh, probably graduated college, but I have no idea what I want to major in, so...

What will you do with your winnings?
Um, I'm planning on saving most of it for college, but I want to buy a new oboe, and probably travel to Wales.

Tune in to see who makes the grade and who gets schooled!


How does it feel to be a semifinalist in the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament!?
Uh, it's pretty unreal. Um, I'm very excited, but, I... I don't know, I'm just really excited.

What do you think of the contestants you faced?
Um, it was very tough. Everyone was really good, and I'm, uh, happy that I was able to win, so...

Do you have any shout-outs to friends and family back home?
Uh, definitely the Olathe South Band, and, uh, my grandma, and... my brother, Luke.

Do you have anyone you'd like to thank?
Uh, I'd like to thank my parents, and everyone who helped me study for this, so...
