Preliminaries: Missaghi/Walker/Warren
February 2

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.

So far, Ryan Stoffers is waiting in the wings for the winners of the rest of the week. Who'll join him tonight?

Daily Double: $800 Verb-atim. So far, Will is tied with Ashley at $800. Samira has the early lead on $3000. Will goes for double on this: this word meaning "to set on fire" is related to one of the three basic forms of rock. "What is ignite?" Correct for $1600!

Daily Double #1: $2000 European Bodies of Water. Fundamentals, Will. Fundamentals. He has $8600 to Ashley's $7000 and Samira's $5000. Will bets $1500 on this: this longest Italian river is fed by 141 tributaries. "What is the Po?" Correct for $10,100!

Now it's a race between Ashley and Will to find...

Daily Double #2: $1200 Classical Music. ... and Ashley beats Will to it. She has $13,400 to his $9700. Samira's got $7800. Ashley bets $2000 on this: at 7, he wrote a Polonaise in G minor; a year later, he performed for Czar Alexander I, who was in Warsaw at the time. "Who is Chopin?" Correct for $15,400!

Final Jeopardy! category: FAMOUS AMERICANS

 

AT HIS DEATH IN 1790, HE LEFT 200-YEAR TRUST FUNDS TO THE CITIES OF BOSTON & PHILADELPHIA

 

Correct response: who was Benjamin Franklin?

Will's response: who is William Penn? WRONG. Wager: $7694. Total: $6.
Samira's response: who is Benjamin Franklin? CORRECT. Wager: $6000. Total: $15,400.
Ashley's response: who is (Benjamin) Franklin? CORRECT. Wager doesn't matter...

SEMI-FINALIST: Ashley Walker

Again, another case of "the point of this week is to get to next week." Will could've only bet so much and stay on the board. As it is, he's probably going to end up watching the semis from the audience. Samira, on the other hand, stands a good chance of meeting up with Ashley again. Both, however, will have their hands full of a better player if they don't step their game up.

Three more players next time.
