Finals: Hammerstrom/Giardina/Pearson - Part 2
November 22
Last week, 15 of America's best and brightest teachers came together to play on our Teachers' Tournament. Of those, nine survive to play this week - five game winners and four wild-cards. Now only three teachers - two wild cards and automatic qualifier John Pearson - have a shot at $100,000 and a spot in the next Tournament of Champions.

What challenges await these educators? 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 in a standard two-match affair.

You're 30 minutes away from a big money moment.

Daily Double: $800 The Korean War. Mary Beth has $1800, $600 on Becky. She bets $800 on this: "War's End Near" said a jubilant US headline on the capture of this metropolis October 19, 1950. "What is Saigon?" No, it was Pyongyang, leaving her with $1000.

Daily Double #1: $1600 Anatomy. Earning an almost-unanswered $8800, John now leads with $13,200 over Becky's $4400. He bets $3000 on this: your tear glands are an example of this type of gland that secretes fluid through a duct & not directly into the bloodstream. "What is an exocrine gland?"  That... would've been right, but sebaceous gland leaves him with $10,200.

Video Daily Double #2: $800 The Guggenheim Museum. Mary Beth has $4000 to John's $18,200. She needs to make a move to stand a chance. She bets $2000. Here's Jimmy. "Jean Arp turned to abstraction as a founding member of this movement that rejected traditional values & embraced chance, even in how its name was supposed chosen randomly from the dictionary." "What is dada?" RIGHT for $6000!

At the end of Double Jeopardy!...

If Mary Beth doubles up and is correct, she will have $32,600. If John bets nothing, he will still have $33,400. This tournament, therefore, is John Pearson's to lose.

Final Jeopardy! category: COUNTRY NAMES

 

IN ENGLAND IN 1933, CHOUDHRY RAHMAT ALI COINED THIS NAME, A COUNTRY THAT WOULDN'T BE FORMED UNTIL 14 YEARS LATER

 

Correct response: what is Pakistan?

Becky's response: what is Israel? WRONG. Wager: $8000. Total: $0.
Mary Beth's response: what is Pakistan? CORRECT. Wager: $10,800. Total: $21,600.
John's response: what is I Love You, Drew!? WRONG, but cute. Wager: $0. Total: $18,200

Wager didn't matter. John had this locked up.
