Preliminaries: D'addario/Sabhapathy/Yozamp

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

Final Jeopardy! category: 20th CENTURY PEOPLE

 

THE JULY 1, 1946 COVER OF TIME MAGAZINE DEPICTED HIM WITH THE CAPTION, "ALL MATTER IS SPEED AND FLAME"

 

Correct response: who is Albert Einstein?

Surya's response: who is Albert Einstein? CORRECT. Wager: $4800. Total: $17,000.
Nick's response: who is Einstein? CORRECT. Wager: $3600. Total: $20,000.
Dan's response: who is Yeager? WRONG. Wager: $4216. Total: $13,584.

SEMI-FINALIST: Nick Yozamp

From start to finish, it was a great prelim match, with three people who obviously know what they're doing and one person, Surya, who can turn it on in the clutch. We'll have to watch these three people later on down the line to see if they truly can shake up the standings.

Now, though, we can tell you for certain that Surya and Samira Missaghi from Tuesday will definitely move on. On the bubble: Dan and Rebecca Maxfield from yesterday.

Next time, we'll have your final nine...
