Preliminaries: Carson/DeMoss/Hess
May 6

It's been said that teachers rank among the best Jeopardy! players ever. To that end, fifteen of them have been chosen from all across the nation to do battle at Sony Pictures Studios for a shot at $100,000 and the title of the first ever Jeopardy! Teachers Champion. Second place gets $50,000. Third gets $25,000. Semifinalists who make it to week 2 will receive $10,000. All of this week's players will receive $5000. All money will be determined, as always, by how far the players go in the tournament.

This is a standard two-week affair, meaning that all 15 will play this week, with the five game winners joining the four highest-scoring non-winners in a win-or-go-home race to the two-day final.

So far, we have six... in 30 minutes we'll have your nine...

ISLANDS FROM D TO E

Daily Double: $600 The President Who Wrote... Judd has only $400, tied with Catherine and $1000 behind Larry. He makes it a true Daily Double on... "Hunting the Grisly". "Who is Theodore Roosevelt?" Correct for $800.

At the end of Jeopardy!...

Daily Double #1: $2000 Lessen Plan. Larry is tearing up the board with $12,800 to Judd's $5600. Larry fronts $3200 on this: an airplane rises due to this Swiss man's "effect", as a fluid's pressure lessens when its speed increases. "What is the Bernoulli effect?" Count it for $16,000!

Daily Double #2: $1600 Sports Weights & Measures. After Larry phrases his response improperly, Judd NOW has half of his total, $8400 to Larry's $16,800. Judd bets $8000 on this: it stretches 62 feet, 10 3/16 inches from foul line to the pit. "What is the long jump?" No, it's a bowling lane, leaving him with $400.

At the end of Double Jeopardy!... It's Larry's game to lose.

... and it looks like the two bubble scores for Wild Card are going to hold.

Final Jeopardy! category: US LANDMARKS

 

IT CONTAINS OVER 5000 TONS OF STEEL, RISES 630 FEET IN THE AIR & IS IN THE SHAPE OF AN INVERTED CATENARY CURVE

 

Correct response: what is the Gateway Arch (St. Louis)?

Catherine's response: what is the St. Louis Arch? RIGHT. Wager: $500. Total: $1500.
Judd's response: What is the St. Louis Arch? RIGHT. Wager: $3199. Total: $8399.
Larry's response: What is the Gateway Arch? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter.

SEMIFINALIST: Larry DeMoss

Like last time, it was pretty much over when Larry got into a groove. If he can find the same stroke next week, a spot in the final is his.

There's just eight things standing between him and $100,000... And here they are...


Kathy Casavant - Game 1 Winner

Dan Crosby - Wild Card

Larry DeMoss - Game 5 Winner

Lori Kissell - Game 3 Winner

Matt Polazzo - Wild Card

Elisabeth Raab - Wild Card

John Shoe - Wild Card

Charles Temple - Game 4 Winner

Charley Tinkham - Game 2 Winner

These nine will have the weekend to think about what their next trick is going to be. Only room for three in the big dance. And you know what that means. It's win or go home. Semifinals start NEXT WEEK!
