18-Year-Old Jeopardy Contestant Dreamed of Blowing Entire $100,000 Jackpot on Taco Bell

This Jeopardy contestant's wildest food dreams could all be fulfilled with $100,000 to spend at Taco Bell.

What would you splurge on if you won $100,000?  If you're a fan of food, you'd probably have some big ideas of what to do. Perhaps you'd order 50 of the Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittatas at Norma's in New York, or 83 giant Alaska king crab dishes at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas — or maybe fly around the world downing expensive cocktails.

But if you're a college student addicted to Taco Bell, your food goals might be a little... less elevated. And perhaps pending it all south of the border would sound like the ultimate fantasy.

At least that's how it is for Rishab Jain, a Georgia Tech freshman who competed on Jeopardy.

He declared that, if he won, he'd spend his six large all on Taco Bell — vegetarian versions of the Mexican Pizza and Crunchwrap Supreme, to be specific.

“It’s changed my life partially," Jain told Fox News. "I found myself going every week,” he says. “It’s good to have that sort of food on campus because it’s something I can relate to.”

He ultimately didn't win the big jackpot, but he left the competition with $10,000 and the attention of Taco Bell, who gave him a $500 gift card for the shout out.

Hey, that's a major win-win!
