Finals: Goucher/UNT/Vandy - Part 2
February 14

Last week, fifteen of the best and brightest of the hallowed halls and dorm rooms of academia descended upon the hallowed halls and studios of Sony Pictures to pitch intellectual combat, three at a time. Now the cream of the cram has risen to the top, as Goucher College's Sarah Bart, Vanderbilt's Zack Terrill, and North Texas's Monica Thieu try to make their tuition money tonight and Friday. At stake: the Jeopardy! Globe, $100,000, a spot in the quarter-million dollar Tournament of Champions... and the title of Jeopardy! College Champion.

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. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

We're 30 minutes away from a big money moment.

Daily Double: $600 A Few Things Happened in 1865. Tied with Zack at $1400, Sarah bets all of it on this: William Booth formed this Christian service organization to help the working class & the poor. "What is the Salvation Army?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2800!

Daily Double #1: $1600 Classical Music. Monica has gotten back into it to tie with Sarah at $2600. Zack has $4000. She bets $1000 on this: "Play of the Waves" is a movement from this Claude Debussy work. "What is 'Jeux'... or 'Games'?" No, it was "La Mer", the sea, dropping her to $1600.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Government & Politics. Sarah has $5400 and second place to Zack's $7600. She bets $2000 on this: chaired by Daniel Inouye, this Senate Committee writes the bills that allocate funds to government agencies. Sarah... blanks. Appropriations takes the money away, dropping her to $3400.

At the end of Double Jeopardy!...

$4,600 $5,200 $8,800
Sarah Monica Zack

Sarah can be mathematically eliminated, as even a doubled score would not be enough to catch a zero wager from Monica or Zack. Zack's only hope for the title is to bet it all and get it right. As for Monica, the magic number is $2401 to lock the tournament away.

Final Jeopardy! category: COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD

 

THE 14 COUNTRIES THAT BORDER CHINA RUN ALPHABETICALLY FROM THIS TO VIETNAM

 

Correct response: what is Afghanistan?

Sarah's response: what is Afghanistan? CORRECT. Wager: $4600. Total: $9800.
Monica's response: what is Afghanistan? CORRECT. Wager: $3000. Total: $8200.
Zack's response: what is Bhutan? WRONG. Wager doesn't matter.

A wrong answer trumps a wrong wager.
