Finals: GTown/MIT/GT - Part 2
May 17

Last week, fifteen collegians took to the Jeopardy! stage and pitched bout for a shot at $100,000 and the title of Jeopardy! College Champion. With that comes a seat in the $250,000 Tournament of Champions. Now that the semifinals are out of the way, it's time for the J! to get real, with three players - Jim Coury of Georgetown, Kristen Jolley of Georgia Tech, and Trevor Walker of MIT - competing for $100,000 and the right to play for $250,000 later in the 30th anniversary season of Jeopardy!. Their names will join 24 others etched in immortality on the giant Jeopardy! College Tournament trophy at the J! Hall of Fame in Culver City.

What challenges await the brightest collegians in the country? How will they rise to meet them? The answers to these questions could be worth $100,000 for the winner, $50,000 for the first runner-up, and $25,000 for the second runner-up.

And now, the deciding game...

Daily Double #1: $1600 Science Fiction. Jim has $15,600 and bets $5000 on this: this 1954 Richard Matheson novel has inspired such films as "The Last Man on Earth" & a 2007 Will Smith movie. "What is 'I, Robot'?" You, wrong. It was "I Am Legend", dropping him to $10,600.

Video Daily Double #2: $1200 Biblical Geography. Kristen trails by $3000, $7600 to $10,600. She bets $3000, and here's Jimmy... "When conquered in 586 BC, the Jewish people were resettled along the Khabur River, hundreds of miles from their home, hence the verse, 'By the rivers of' this place, 'we wept when we remembered Zion'." "What is Galilee?" No, it was Babylon, dropping her to $4600.
