A 12-year-old from Metairie, Louisiana...

Injee Hong

What do you like about Jeopardy!?
I love the whole game show atmosphere, and just the whole thing with the questions and trivia and random trivia.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
When I grow up, I'm planning to become a lawyer, especially--well, maybe a prosecutor, but I'm not sure.

Do you think you'll be the coolest kid in school when everyone sees you on TV?
I hope so!


How does it feel to be a Jeopardy! champion?
It's just so exciting! Like, I don't even have words to describe it. Like, that Final Jeopardy! question, I was just so nervous, and then getting it right, and then winning, it was just... such a great experience! I can't explain it.

What are you going to do with your winnings?
Well, I'm sure I'm going to have to put it into college, well, at least some of it, but, um, I think I want to give some to my sister and some other things, too.

What did you enjoy most about your experience on Jeopardy!?
Probably meeting Alex Trebek. It's--he's so awesome! [Laughs] And just, meeting him in person was just so cool.

Was there a category that was easy for you?
Um, the category that I thought was the easiest was SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS, but sometimes I couldn't get my buzzer in time, so...
