Finals: BU/SAU/Yale - Part 2
November
19

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 Boston University's Erin McLean, Southern Adventist's Hans von Walter, and Yale's Sam Spaulding 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. All players are guaranteed a Nintendo Wii with THQ's "Jeopardy!" for participation. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

And we're half an hour away from a big money moment...

Daily Double: $800 A Nation Divided. Hans has $3800 to $4000 for Erin and $4400 for Sam. He wants to make it true. He's gotta do it. The clue: in 1971 it broke away from what's now Pakistan, which of 1100 miles away anyhow. "What is Bangladesh?" That was Erin screaming, by the way. He's got $7600.

At the end of Jeopardy!...

Double Jeopardy! categories:

POP & ROCK FRENCH
NOVELISTS
GARDENS JOURNALISM WORD
ORIGINS

Daily Double #1: $2000 Word Origins. Hans is back in it with $11,000, six bills behind his competition. He bets $4000 on this: Murray Gell-Mann adopted this word for various hypothetical particles from "Finnegan's Wake." "What are quarks?" RIGHT! That's $15,000!

Second Daily Double: $1600 Gardens. Erin is $2600 behind the leader. She bets $200 more than that on this: in 1913 his wife Ellen planted the first actual rose garden in the White House's west garden. "Um, who is Wilson?" Correct for $15,600!

Scores going into the Final...

$16,000 $13,800 $14,800
Erin Hans Sam

If Hans is to stand ANY chance, he cannot miss the Final. Otherwise, we're looking at a two-person tournament. In order to win the tournament, Erin has to be $2002 and be correct. Anything less, and it's Sam's game if he plays everything.

Final Jeopardy! category: OUR LIVING PLANET

 


SEVERAL SPECIES APPEAR IN THE LOGO OF THE UN's INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF THIS 12-LETTER WORD, VITAL TO THE HEALTH OF "LIFE" ON EARTH

 

Correct response: what is biodiversity?

Hans' response: what is conservation? WRONG. Wager: $2999. Total: $10,801.
Sam's response: what is biodiversity? RIGHT. Wager: $8401. Total: $23,201.
Erin's response: what is diversity? WRONG. Wager: $2002. Total: $13,998.

She did what she had to do and as a result...
