Rachel - $5000
Ari - $1200

Double Jeopardy! categories: Cliffs Notes; I Hear You Calling; Royal Scandals; A Real Rhodes Scholar; X Games; Steelers, Pirates & Penguins

Daily Double #1: $1600 Steelers, Pirates & Penguins. Kermin ($12,200 to Rachel's $5400 and Ari's $800) wagers $2000. Clue: Set in a coastal town in Cornwall, this Gilbert & Sullivan operetta premiered in 1879. Kermin's guess: "What are 'The Pirates of Penzance'?" Correct for $14,200.

Final Jeopardy! Category: 20th Century Americans. Answer: At the dedication of a fountain at Radcliffe College in 1960, she began her speech with the single word "water". Correct response: Who was Helen Keller?
Rachel's question: Who is Rachel Carson? (WRONG) Wager: $3800. Final score for game 1: $2000
Ari's question: Who is Carson? (WRONG) Wager: $6200. Final score for game 1: $2600
Kermin's question: Who is Rachel Carson? (WRONG) Wager: $3600. Final score for game 1: $13,800

TA Chico Says...: Just goes to show you that in tournament play, Final Jeopardy! is only one part of a greater whole, as Kermin keeps his lead against two people who obviously wanted to catch him. If he keeps up the play in the front end, then he could take home the bank. The $100,000 is his to lose so long as that happens.


TUESDAY November 23:

KERMIN FLEMING
$13,800
RACHEL McCOOL
$2000
ARI SCHOENHOLTZ
$2600

Jeopardy! categories: My Name is Alex, Movie Title Translations, English Literature, College Hodgepodge, The Planets, Crossword Clues "P".

Daily Double: $1000 The Planets. Rachel ($1000 to Kermin's $4200 and Ari's $200) pushes it all out. Clue: Named for a water nymph, Naiad is this planet's nearest known moon. Rachel's guess: "What is Neptune?" Correct for $2000.

End of Round:
Kermin - $6600
Rachel - $2800

Double Jeopardy! categories: Martin Luther King, Jr.; Pop Culture 2004; Metals; Greece; I Learned It Online; Freshman Composition.

Daily Double #1: $1200 Metals. Kermin ($7800 to Rachel's $2800 and Ari's $200) wagers just $800. Clue: Poisoning from this metal is sometimes called plumbism or saturnism. Kermin's guess: "What is lead?" Correct for $8600.

Daily Double #2: $1200 Freshman Composition, the last clue in the round. Fresh off a bit of a run, Ari ($11,400 to Kermin's $13,800 and a judge-augmented $4800 for Rachel) needs to push a great deal of it out to stand a chance. He wagers $8200, going for the win. Clue: You'll find the French word for "day" in this word that may be a daily assignment. Ari's guess: "What is diary?" Correct response: What is journal?; Ari drops quite a bit to $3200.

End of Round:
Kermin - $17,400
Rachel - $4800
Ari - $3200

TA Chico Says...: Congratulations, Ari. You just bought it. Even if you went all in on the final, you could only get $9000 max, not enough to catch Kermin. Same deal with Rachel, as she only stands to go up to $11,600. The Final Jeopardy! this time is merely a formality, as Kermin is mathematically the winner.

Final Jeopardy! Category: State Facts. Answer: This state & its capital were named for 2 Dukedoms held by the same British man. Correct response: What is New York?
Ari's question: What is Harrisburg, PA? (WRONG) Wager: $1001. Final score for game 2: $2199
Rachel's question: What is Richmond? (WRONG) Wager: $4000. Final score for game 2: $800
Kermin's question: What is ? (WRONG) Wager: $447. Final score for game 2: $13,353

Ari's grand total: $2600 + $2199 = $4799 - Second place: $50,000
Rachel's grand total: $2000 + $800 = $2800 - Third place: $25,000
Kermin's grand total: $13,800 + $13,353 = $27,153

And Alex reminds us: "Ken Jennings, back with us tomorrow."

TA Chico Says...: Class dismissed. In more ways than one, professor.

CHAMPION: $100,000
