  • So this episode aired on Monday, but when did you actually

  • shoot that?

  • So we actually shot it in mid-September.

  • It was right after Alex had actually announced publicly

  • that he was going to renter chemotherapy

  • for pancreatic cancer.

  • And he had come back actually to the green room

  • and talked to all the contestants

  • who were on the tournament.

  • And we could really tell that, like, it was tough for him.

  • So when I got up there like, obviously I

  • wasn't going to win the game or anything.

  • So I was like, I could try to figure out the right answer,

  • or I could do something for this person who

  • might need it right now.

  • That was really sweet.

  • That was really amazing and emotional.

  • Everybody-- but you're a huge fan anyway.

  • You've been on the show before.

  • I have, yes.

  • About a year and a half ago I actually won $100,000

  • on the college championship.

  • Wow.

  • How many days were you on then?

  • I was on four days then, and then two days this time.

  • Two days this time.

  • Yeah.

  • And so you weren't doing well, and like you said,

  • you just decided-- you probably could have come up

  • with the answer, but instead of doing that because you weren't

  • going to win anyway, you decided to do something

  • really thoughtful and sweet.

  • That was amazing.

  • So what did you do with the $100,000?

  • So, I go to Brown, which costs a lot of money.

  • So I spent a good amount of it on tuition,

  • and another thing I decided to do

  • is I took like 20 friends out to eat

  • and paid for all their meals, and they apparently,

  • according to the check, had a lot of fun.

  • And so did I.

  • That can add up.

  • Yeah.

  • You probably didn't think it was going to be as much as it was.

  • No, I didn't, but you know it's all good.

  • Yeah.

  • So and then what has the response been like

  • since you've been on the show?

  • It's been crazy.

  • So I was at the launch party for this episode with my friends,

  • and my mom texted me.

  • And she was like, you're trending on Twitter.

  • And I was like, OK mom.

  • Like eight tweets isn't trending.

  • And then she was like, no, really.

  • Like check.

  • And we love you Alex was like in the top 10

  • trending hashtags on Twitter.

  • And since then like it's been really crazy.

  • Like I'm here.

  • Also like Ryan Reynolds, Chrissy Teigen,

  • like all tweeted this moment.

  • And there's just been like a lot of energy around this.

  • And kind of to keep that up, something

  • that a lot of the contestants on the tournament and I

  • are going to be doing tonight and tomorrow night

  • is, during the finals of the Tournament of Champions

  • that will be airing, we're going to be playing along at home.

  • And for every question we get right we're

  • going to donate $1 to the Lustgarten Foundation

  • to support pancreatic cancer research.

  • Wow, good for you.

  • That's fantastic.

  • I don't know how you're going to be watching along

  • at home, because you don't own a television.

  • So I'm going to give you one so you can watch at home.

  • I have-- I have a bunch.

  • They're all around.

  • Oh my God.

  • Gonna fit in your apartment?

  • Uh, we'll figure it out.

  • All right.

  • It's a 75 inch.

  • I hope so.

  • All right, we also want to do something

  • in honor of you and Alex Trebek.

  • Shutterfly cares about supporting causes like this,

  • so they're going to donate $25,000

  • towards pancreatic cancer research.

  • Wow.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you so much.
