"Semifinals: Gonzaga/Washington-St. Louis/Purdue" - November 14

It is an honor and a privilege as the NC delegate to GSNN to welcome you back to my neck of the woods, Raleigh, North Carolina, for week two of Jeopardy!'s 2005 College Championship. Nine collegians have made it this far, but at the end of Friday's show, there will only be one. That one will win a nice trophy, an even nicer check, $100,000, and an even nicer than that berth in the next Tournament of Champions for a quarter-mill. No more wild cards or second chances this go around... It's win... or go home.

The second place winner is guaranteed at least $50,000 and third-place is ensured $25,000. All of this week's semifinalists are guaranteed at least $10,000. Any and all monies, as always, depend on how far the player moves up the bracket.

Tonight, the first of the three semifinals...

East Wenatchee, WA
Junior, Gonzaga
Madison, WI
Junior, Washington-St. Louis
Carmel, IN
Sophomore, Purdue

Jeopardy! categories: In the News 2005, Scary Movies, Press On Nails, That's My Royal Nickname, College Courses, Go "State!"

Daily Double: $600 That's My Royal Nickname. Jayanth (tied with Amanda at $200 to Antonia's $2200) bets the max of $1000. The clue: Ottoman emperor styled "The Magnificent". Jayanth's response: "Who is Suleiman?" Correct for $1200.

End of round:
Amanda - $4000
Jayanth - $6800
Antonia - $4600

Double Jeopardy! categories: Poets & Poetry, MC Trebek in Da Hizz-ouse (identify the rapper), Which Time Zone?, A Dangerous Category, Art, "Ump" It Up.

For the record, our three combatants are too young to remember the Beastie Boys and LL Cool J in their prime.

Daily Double #1: $1200 Poets & Poetry. Amanda ($10,000 to Jayanth's $12,000 and Antonia's $6200) bets the lead, $2000. The clue: in 1993 she became the second poet to recite an original work at a Presidential inauguration. Amanda's response: "Who is Maya Angelou?'" Correct for the tie at $12,000.

Daily Double #2: $1200 A Dangerous Category. Jayanth (tied with Amanda's $15,200 to Antonia's $6200) fronts $1800. The clue: according to Homer, these deadly mythological singers enticed many a sailor to his doom. Jayanth's response: "What are the Sirens?" Correct for $17,000 and the lead by his lonesome.

End of round:
Amanda - $15,200
Jayanth - $20,600
Antonia - $4200

From a mathematical standpoint, the only way for Antonia to go to the final is for both Amanda and Jayanth to make big moves in the wagering department... and blow them. And, of course, Antonia has to be right.

Final Jeopardy! category: American Design. The clue: a Philips 66 in Cloquet, Minnesota is the only functioning gas station designed by this man. Correct response: Who was Frank Lloyd Wright?

Antonia's question: Who is Rockwell? (WRONG) Wager: $4199. Final score: $1.
Amanda's question: Who was Frank Lloyd Wright? (RIGHT) Wager: $15,199. Final score: $30,399.
Jayanth's question: Who is Frank Lloyd Wright? (RIGHT) Wager: $9801. Final score: $30,401. FINALIST

IT WAS OVER WHEN... the wagers were written. Now you had to think strategy. And clearly, that's what Jayanth did going into the final, only betting enough to win. The ladies had to play catch-up, and even if they had all bombed the final, Jayanth would still have enough to win it.

Now he awaits his two challengers in the end-of-week showdown.
