Semifinals: Hart/LaPorte/Thiesfeld
February 25

For the last five days, the best and brightest teenagers from all around the country gathered at Sony to square off and pitch bout in the tradition of their gladiatorial forbearers to determine who would play for a prize pool of over a quarter-million, the winner getting $75,000. Where 15 once stood, now only nine remain.

Winner of the tournament receives $75,000 and the right to be called this season's Teen Champion. Second place gets $25,000. Third gets $15,000. All semifinalists are guaranteed $10,000. All money will be determined, as always, by how far the players go in the tournament.

We're in week two of our two-week affair, meaning that it's win-or-go-home as the semifinalists fight for one of only THREE seats in the $75,000 final.

So far, Raya Elias-Pushett is awaiting the winner of this match...

Daily Double: $800 Castles. Kailyn has $6800 and the lead, betting $1000 on this: now a national monument, the Alhambra in this European country was begun by Moorish rulers around 1238. "What is Spain?" Correct for $7800!

Daily Double #1: $2000 Literary Genres. Kailyn still has the lead with $10,600, more than $5000 on her opponents. She bets $2200 on this: this word can mean a short prose narrative as well as a preliminary drawing. "What is a sketch?" CORRECT FOR $12,800!

Daily Double #2: $1600 Geometry. Lindsey has a shot to get back in this with $7200 to $22,000 for Kailyn. A bet of $3000 won't do it, but it'll get her a shot at it with this: this figure, a quadrilateral with just one pair of parallel sides, shares its name with a wrist bone. "What is a trapezoid?" CORRECT for $10,200!

At the end of Double Jeopardy!...

No math needed here. With greater than twice Lindsey's total, this game is Kailyn's to lose.

Final Jeopardy! category: GEOGRAPHIC TERMS

 

THIS AREA THAT INCLUDES SEVERAL COUNTRIES GOT ITS NAME BECAUSE THE COLONIZERS SPOKE SPANISH, FRENCH & PORTUGUESE

 

Correct response: what is Latin America?

Erin's response: what is Latin America? RIGHT. Wager: $8800. Total: $17,600.
Lindsey's response: what is the West Indies? WRONG. Wager: $10,000. Total: $1400.
Kailyn's response: what is Latin America? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter... but it was the answer, $42.

FINALIST: Kailyn LaPorte

A better front game could not have been played. Kailyn knew that she had to play hard Jeopardy! for 30 minutes. If she keeps up the pace, then she will go home with the trophy on Wednesday.

Our third semifinal ... MONDAY.
