Q: There have been a few trivia-minded game show winners who have gone on to do other shows, or hit the trivia circuits, or written books -- Ken Jennings comes to mind, but there are several others. Could you see yourself taking that sort of path now?
Jason: Well, no one's contacted me yet ... (laughs). I'd definitely be interested in pursuing that sort of career though. I'd love to participate in those "master" game shows. I would really be excited to meet the other alumni and go on those shows.
Q: You're studying English and Film/Media right now -- what were you planning to do, career-wise, after graduation?
Jason: I've been looking into getting my Master's first. After that, I've always been interested in film so I'd like to do something in that field. Whether it's acting, directing, writing, I don't know yet.
Q: While you were on 1 vs. 100, you continued to opt for the mob over the money, even when you reached a quarter of a million dollars. What was it that drove you to keep playing?
Jason: Mostly I was just confident that any question they threw at me, I could figure it out. I had problems with that weigh-lifting question and used two helps, but after that I was confident. I just decided to go for it.
Q: After you won, you said that it hadn't really sunk in yet. Has it sunk in now, and if so, how does it feel?
Jason: It has slowly started to! My friends keep asking me, "What are you going to do with the money?" and I keep telling them that I don't know. Once I get the money in the bank it might sink in fully. It's not there yet though.
Q: Was it weird watching yourself on TV?
Jason: It was odd. I'm fairly critical of myself anyway, so I was really self-critical watching myself on the show. I kept telling myself, "Stop looking down!"
Q: What advice would you give to people who want to be on the show but aren't quite sure whether they should apply or not?
Jason: Go for it! It doesn't cost anything to apply, you can just go to their website and fill out an application. What's the worst that can happen?
Q: Are you a fan of game shows other than 1 vs. 100?
Jason: I'm a big game show fan. My whole family is pretty competitive playing against each other along with shows like Jeopardy! My brother, who was with me when I was trying to get on 1 vs. 100, probably still thinks he could have done better than I did on the show.
Q: Where can fans of both you and the show get in touch with you?
Jason: Well, the big multi-media empire hasn't been built yet, so they can look me up on Facebook for now. I've got a profile there.
Jason, thanks so much for speaking with me today. Congrats again, and best of luck to you.
Jason: Thanks. Thanks very much.
