"Finals: Washington-St. Louis/Stanford/UAB" - November 17

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. We started with 15, whittled it to nine, and finally, we have the final three. 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. Any and all monies, as always, depend on how far the player moves up the bracket.

Tonight, part one...

JAYANTH IYENGAR
Madison, WI
Junior, Washington-St. Louis
NICO MARTINEZ
Bloomfield Hills, MI
Junior, Stanford
ADAM PINSON
Pinson, AL
Senior, Alabama-Birmingham

Jeopardy! categories: The Ivory Tower, Student Loans, Money from Home, Staying Up Late, Partying, In College (correct responses will be made up of letters in the word "College").

Daily Double: $400 Partying. Jayanth ($0 to Nico's $4000 and Adam's $2000) bets the maximum of $1000. The clue: between 1841 and 1853, 4 US Presidents were from this political party that no longer exists. Jayanth's response: "What is the Whig Party?" Correct for $1000.

End of round:
Jayanth - $200
Nico - $10,800
Adam - $3000

Double Jeopardy! categories: Pierced Naval History, Athletes, Effects, Lost in Austria, She Invented What?, Missing Vowels.

Daily Double #1: $2000 Lost in Austria. Nico ($15,600 over Adam's $4200 and Jayanth's $200) fronts $2400. The clue: Austria-Hungary declared war on this country on July 28, 1914. Nico's response: "What is Serbia?" Correct for $18,000.

Daily Double #2: $2000 Effects. Adam ($13,000 to Nico's $23,600 and Jayanth's -$1000) fronts $3000. "I'm just not that bright." The clue: this 19th Century Frenchman gave his name to an effect by which oxygen inhibits fermentation. Adam's response: "What is a Lavoisier effect?" Correct response: "Who is Pasteur?" Adam drops to $10,000.

Would be something if Jayanth were to go into tomorrow's game with less than zero...

End of round:
Jayanth - $200
Nico - $26,000
Adam - $10,800

Doesn't happen, though. But then again this is a two-day total affair. The end of today will determine how hard you're going to have to come at it tomorrow.

Final Jeopardy! category: British Poets. The clue: in 1812 he became a disciple & friend of social philosopher William Godwin, later his father-in-law. Correct response: Who was Percy Shelley?

Jayanth's question: Who is Percy Shelley? (RIGHT) Wager: $199. Final score: $399.
Adam's question: Who is Percy Shelley? (RIGHT) Wager: $4000. Final score: $14,800.
Nico's question: Who is Percy Shelley? (RIGHT) Wager: $3000. Final score: $29,000.

So going into tomorrow's match...

JAYANTH IYENGAR
$399
NICO MARTINEZ
$29,000
ADAM PINSON
$14,800

It's basically a two-man affair with Nico and Adam about to throw down. As for Jayanth, it's going to take a Herculean effort to pull out in front. We'll see what happens tomorrow.
