Preliminaries: Berg/Hill/Maxfield
February 3

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 and Ashley Walker are waiting in the wings for the winners of the rest of the week. Who'll join them tonight?

Daily Double: $800 Capital Cities. James has $1000 to Robbie's $200. James goes for double on this: once the capital of Spain's New World empire, this South American city was founded by Pizarro in 1535. "What is Brasilia?" Not it. It was Lima, Peru, dropping him down to zero.

Rebecca's looking for the first Daily Double...

Daily Double #1: $1600 Class "E". ... but James finds it with $13,000. Rebecca's $10,200 is close. Robbie's got $6000. James bets $2500 on this: at Harvard, introduction to game theory is a course on this. "What is elementary mathematics?" Nope, it's economics, dropping him to $10,500.

Daily Double #2: $2000 Geometry. James is trying to go one-for-three with $18,900 to Rebecca's $15,000. Robbie has $6800. James bets $2500 on this: when carried out to 5 decimal places, pi equals this. "What is 3.14157?" Missed it by THAT much. It was 3.14159, leaving him with $16,400.

Final Jeopardy! category: OLYMPIC VENUES

 

AT ABOVE 7,000 FEET, THIS WESTERN HEMISPHERE CITY HAD THE HIGHEST ALTITUDE EVER OF A SUMMER OLYMPICS HOST CITY

 

Correct response: what is Mexico City (1968)?

Robbie's response: what is Atlanta? WRONG. Wager: $6797. Total: $3.
Rebecca's response: what is Winnipeg? WRONG. Wager: $3026. Total: $11,973.
James's response: what is Mexico City? CORRECT. Wager doesn't matter...

SEMI-FINALIST: James Hill III

Robbie was the only one to do the absolutely wrong thing, trying to win this outright against a formidable opponent. Rebecca did the right thing in holding back, knowing that she was a fierce player as well. As it is, she stands a good chance of making it back and turning on the afterburners. As for James, he has the broad-based knowledge, but doesn't really perform in the Daily Doubles. In matches where they can decide it, that may come back and hurt him.

Three more players next time.
