  Fifteen champions... a combined 106 games... a combined $4.166 million-plus. What is there left? How about immortality as one of the game's greats. This is for the title, $250,000, and the right to be called a SUPERCHAMPION. This is the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions!

All this week, the 15 qualifiers (which includes an alternate for the late great Larry Martin, a Teachers Tournament Champion) will compete for five slots in the semifinal next week. Just for being here, they're guaranteed $5000. Those who make it to the semis will bag $10,000. That includes automatic qualifiers and the four wild-cards. Then it's win-or-go-home in the semis for three slots in the finals. Second runner-up gets $50,000. First runner-up gets $100,000. The winner gets $250,000.

And it starts with these three...

Emma Boettcher
user experience librarian
Dhruv Gaur
Gainesville, GA
student at Brown
Kyle Jones
Aurora, CO
music teacher

Players this week are guaranteed $10,000.

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Real Names on the Marquis, Government & Politics, What's Her Sport, Flags, The King James Bible Sayeth, Words That Use All 5 Vowels.

Emma scored the highest on her qualifier, so she goes first with $800 Words That Use All 5 Vowels. Kyle finds the Daily Double under $600 Flags. He has $1800, $1000 more than Emma's $800. He's going for it on this: the diamond shape on its flag references the fact that it was the only diamond-producing US state. "What is West Virginia?" No, it's Arkansas, dropping him to zero. He recovers to $4600 to $3200 for Emma. Dhruv is stalled at the gate with zero, giving him the first pick in...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Non Compose Mentis, Math Guys, A Generic Title, Expressions & Idioms, True Story, "DM" Me.

... with the Daily Double under $1600 Math Guys. He still has nothing, so he goes for $2000 on this: the subject of a 2001 film, this mathematician won a 1994 Nobel Prize for Economics. "Who is... Friedman?" No, it wasn't the producer, it was another beautiful mind, John Nash, dropping him to -$2000. Kyle finds the other under $800 A Generic Title on $6200, half of Emma's score. He's going for it on this: it's a sequence, it's a genre (C-Note: Alex Jacob to the white courtesy phone), it's a podcast hosted by Sarah Koenig. "What is 'Serial'?" FOR THE TYING DOUBLER, $12,400! He ends up with $14,800 to Emma's $19,200. Dhruv is all but out of it with $2000.

And now it's time for... BOOK SAYS SO! We go to our friends at J-Archive to figure out the ultimate betting strategy for each player.

- Dhruv wins if... he bets everything and is the only one correct, while the other two bet against each other and Emma does something really egregious. She will not do anything really egregious.
- Kyle wins if... he bets $6000 and is correct, while Emma bets and is wrong or bets nothing either way.
- Emma wins if... she bets $10,401 and is correct (but no more than $15,199).

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Famous Phrases": In the title of a groundbreaking 1890 expose of poverty in New York City slums, these 3 words follow "How the". Correct response: what is "Other Half Lives"?

Dhruv... well, you have to see this for yourself. It's a moment that goes beyond the game...

Kyle is right to go to $19,201 on a venusian wager. Emma goes all-out to win the first spot in the final.

FINALIST: Emma Boettcher

And one-half of the nightmare scenario for whoever wins Wednesday is already complete.

Last week, the frustration between the competition and Sean Spicer became almost infallibly palpable, as Kate Flannery & Pasha Pashkov were eliminated, leaving the final six to dance again.

Tonight is Boy Bands & Girl Groups Night, with each couple dancing TWICE. The first round is Girl Groups with guest judge Emma Bunton of the Spice Girls (and also cohost of "The Great American Baking Show"). The second round is Boy Bands with guest judge Joey Fatone of Nsync (and also host of "Common Knowledge". See a pattern here, friends?). The combined score will factor half into the elimination. The other is the audience vote. Y'all know this now.

... and I'm getting a breaking news item in my earpiece - Emma had a last second emergency, so it'll be all Joey all night.

GIRL GROUP LINEUP (along with scores from Carrie Ann/Len/Joey/Bruno)
- James van der Beek & Emma Slater - JIVE to "I'm So Excited" by The Pointer Sisters - 9/9/9/9 - 36 out of a possible 40
- Sean Spicer & Jenna Johnson (again, in for an in absentia Lindsay Arnold) - ARGENTINE TANGO to "Bills Bills Bills" by Destiny's Child - 7/6/7/6 - 26
- Hannah Brown & Alan Bersten - SALSA to "No Scrubs" by TLC - 8/8/8/8 - 32
- Ally Brooke & Sasha Farber - SAMBA to "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls - 10/10/10/10 - PERFECT 40!
- Lauren Alaina & Gleb Savchenko - QUICKSTEP to "Can't Hurry Love" by the Supremes - 9/9/8/8 - 34
- Kel Mitchell & Witney Carson - PASO DOBLE to "Free Your Mind" by En Vogue - 8/8/9/9 - 34

So after all that, Ally & Sasha are in front with 40, log jam in the middle of 36s & 34s, and Sean & Jenna have a 26.

BOY BAND LINEUP (along with scores from Carrie Ann/Len/Joey/Bruno)
- James & Emma - JAZZ to "Bye Bye Bye" by Nsync - 9/8/10/9 - 36. Because Joey freaking Fatone.
- Hannah & Alan - TANGO to "Boy with Luv" by BTS featuring Halsey - 10/9/10/10 - 39
- Sean & Jenna - FOXTROT to "Story of My Life" by OneDirection - 6/6/6/6 - 24
- Lauren & Gleb - RUMBA to "I Want It That Way" by The Backstreet Boys - 9/9/9/9 - 36
- Kel & Witney - VIENNESE WALTZ to "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men - 10/10/10/10 - PERFECT 40!
- Ally & Sasha - JAZZ by "Step by Step" by New Kids on the Block - 10/10/10/10 - PERFECT 40!


Going into the vote...
- 80 - Ally/Sasha
- 74 - Kel/Witney
- 72 - James/Emma
- 71 - Hannah/Alan
- 70 - Lauren/Gleb
- 50 - Sean/Jenna

BOTTOM TWO after the vote...
- Sean/Jenna
- Lauren/Gleb

As always, the final decision is the panel's. And Joey doesn't get a say.
- Carrie Ann: Lauren/Gleb
- Bruno: Lauren/Gleb
ELIMINATED: Sean Spicer & Jenna Johnson

Two weeks to go. I smell a double elimination.

ROUND 1: Dylan wins the toss and gets to field questions from Jon, Louie, and (new friend of the site) Jodi, leaving Hallie to take Vivica, Byron, and the Weasel. Everyone's right for a $300-all tie.

ROUND 2: Hallie begins the round... by spoiling her perfecto. Dylan ends up in the lead with $900-$700.

ROUND 3: Hallie goes first, and going into Q5, she trails with $1000 to Dylan's $1500. No way that she can win here, but let's play it out anyway. Question to Jodi - True or false: a Canadian firefighter made headlines when he climbed a tree to actually rescue a cougar. She says false. Hallie agrees... it was true.

- Q1: According to Reader's Digest, there's a chemical that makes me fall asleep after being intimate called... caffeine, prolactin, or tequila? He goes with prolactin... and we mo on.
- Q2: Women who dislike men are called... misandrists, misogamists, misincolists, or miss, please put down that knife? He says "misogamists".. but it was misandrists, but Dylan does go home to a new spouse and $1500 for the technical perfecto.

Today, we continue our Special Guest Model Month (with Melissa Ordway) as we celebrate Veterans DAy on TPIR!

First up, Robert Somgynari, Estevan Banuelos, Daphne Wright, and Joaquin Cuenca play for his & hers golf clubs. The $2423 clubs go to sailor Daphne, who can putt around or two in Denver (5n @ Halcyon) and Washington, DC (5n @ Omni Shoreham Hotel) if she can solve one query. Colorado is $8061... DC is $7187. Are those right as they are, or are we going to Switch? She switches.. RIGHT!

Army Strong Robert gets a $725 laptop and a shot at a Ford EcoSport S in Card Game. The window: $2000. He draws the ace of hearts and makes it $18,700 to go. Anything between that and $20,700 is a win. The price: $21,799.

Estevan deploys to an $820 set of fitness trackers. He'll come back with $16,000 if he completes the mission in It's In the Bag. Raisinets for $1.29? YES. ZzzQuil de-stress gummies for $14.57... Let me get one of those. Purina Cat Chow for $6.99... Got it. Kettle potato chips for $2.99... RIGHT! Welch's grape juice for $4.49 for the win... $16,000!

But Daphne would win at the Big Wheel. Meanwhile, Audree Lett, USN, gets a $1538 mini-fridge with kegerator & ice maker. She'll complete the home theater with seating, 4KTV, BluRay, and sound system if she knows whether he's Coming ($6148) or Going ($8416). She Goes... wrong direction.

Airman Terry Booth gets a $4740 trip to San Diego (3n @ L'Auberge del Mar)... that's right, he's going to Top Gun... but will he win a Sea-Doo in SEcret X? Freebie goes top left. He gets one from a $50 garage opener. That goes top right. The Secret X... middle.

Last change for Joaquin comes with an iPhone XS. The price: $1149. The winner... Joaquin! The former airman & soldier will play for a Chevy Sonic LS in Money Game.

72  48  17
16  90  31
54  18  63

Middle number is 6. 16... money. 17... front. 48... why. 90... WINNER!

Going to extra spins, and Terry wins over Audree, 65-60.

THE FABULOUS SHOWCASES!: First up, a trip to Phoenix (5n @ The Clarendon Hotel & Spa), a kitchen island with bistro set, and a Ford Ranger XLT SuperCrew 4x2. Top winner Daphne bids $30,000. Terry gets a trip to Maui (5n @ Travassa Hana Maui, $1750 credit) and a CADILLAC ATS! He bids $45,000. Actual price: $59,677, a difference of $17,677. Actual price of Daphne's Showcase... $42,901, a difference of $12,901, and Daphne wins a total of $60,572! ZOINKS!

But the real winners... everyone in attendance. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice in keeping the world safe for democracy.
