How does it feel to be a Jeopardy! champion?
Kind of weird, because I didn't think I was going to win, [giggles] but kind of amazing, too.

What inspired you to try out for the show?
Well, I've watched the show since, like, forever, and, um, when I saw the ads, I was like, "Hm! I want to try that." So I did. I did the online test, and then I got to do an audition in New York.

I really liked getting to know other kids who were on it. They're just all really nice and smart like me, and we have a lot, like, of interests in common.
