Preliminaries: Romick/Stoffers/Vopava
February 1

Welcome to Jeopardy! 101. I'm your professor, Chico Alexander. It's a brand new semester at Trebekistan University of Culver City, and one of fifteen college students is about to make tuition in the annual College Championship. At stake: $100,000, the title of 2010 Jeopardy! College Champion, and a berth in the next Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions.

Second place is guaranteed $50,000, while third will get $25,000 in a standard two-week event. Semifinalists are guaranteed at least $10,000, while quarterfinalists are guaranteed $5000 for participation. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

Only nine of the fifteen that compete this week will be invited to return next week, however, the five winners this week and four wild card top-scorers.

Right now, though, we got to take you to school. Open your books to page one.

Daily Double: $800 Starts with 2 Vowels. Everyone's on money, but Ryan has more of it with $800. He bets the max of $1000 on this: it's the only state that fits the bill. "What is Iowa?" Correct for $1800.

Daily Double #1: $1600 From the Greek For... Once again, Ryan finds it early, but he has $5800 with which to play. He bets $2000 on this: "going out", it's a book in the Bible. "What is exodus?" Correct for $7800!

Daily Double #2: $1600 Fraternities. With two clues left, Danny is in the middle with $7000 to Lyndsey's $5000 and Ryan's $18,600. Danny bets just $1000 on this: founded in 1882, they were named for the discoverer of the Americas. "What are the Knights of Columbus?" Correct for $8000!

At the end of the Double Jeopardy! round...

Lyndsey Ryan Danny

It's a foregone conclusion that Ryan is going on to next week's shows. The question now becomes who will join him as a wild card.... if either of them.

Final Jeopardy! category: MEDICINE

 

THE GENES OF THIS ORGANISM WERE DISCOVERED TO BE 2 PARTS PIG, 1 PART HUMAN & 1 PART BIRD

 

Correct response: what is H1N1?

Lyndsey's response: what is? WRONG. Wager: $100. Total: $5700.
Danny's response: what is the platypus? WRONG. Wager: $7200. Total: $0.
Ryan's response: what is H1N1? CORRECT. Wager doesn't matter...

SEMI-FINALIST: Ryan Stoffers

One of the things we like to say around here is that the point of this week is to get to next week. Danny would've done very well if he bet only $3000 or so to hedge his bets. As it is, he goes no further up the bracket. Lyndsey, at least, is on the board with $5700. As for Ryan, if he can continue this pace, he can prove to be most formidable.

Three more players next time.
