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.

By the end of the night, we'll have your final nine...

Daily Double: $800 World Holidays. If anyone needed to find a Daily Double, it's Prashant, who has -$200 to Lindsay's $2600. Leah is also in negative numbers. Prashant bets the face value on this: this country has a Coptic Christmas, an Islamic New Year & a Sinai Liberation Day. "What is Ethiopia?" Nope, a little bit north to Egypt, leaving him with -$1000.

Daily Double #1: $1200 Nuclear Energy. Leah wastes no time in betting $2000 of her $5600 against Lindsay's $3000 and Prashant's $1000. The clue: 2-word term for the amount of fuel required to maintain a chain reaction; it varies according to the reactor. "What is critical mass?" Correct for $7600!

Daily Double #2: $800 Name That Century. Lindsay was looking for it in the Palindromes category, but Prashant, who has all of $5400, has found it. He bets $2000 on this: the Normans conquer England. "What is the 11th Century?" Correct for $7400.

SEMI-FINALIST: Lindsay Eanet

Let's look at the scores for a moment. Lindsay was leading at the end of the Double Jeopardy! round. And this is without finding a Daily Double. You want to talk about being in stroke? She could be a scary one to watch.

... and so could Leah, who also moves on thanks to her score being high enough to join the Wild Cards. These seven will join them:
