Finals: Mancuso/Briley/Schaefer - Part 2
May 11

Last week, fifteen teenagers headed to the quiz show equivalent of "The Hunger Games" in Southern California. Now it's on to the Capital, as the action switches to DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC. At stake, $75,000 and the title of the 2012 Teen Tournament Champion. Second place gets $25,000. Third gets $15,000. All tournament tributes will receive the all new edition of Classroom Jeopardy! for their schools. All money will be determined, as always, by how far the players go in the tournament.

We are 30 minutes away from a Big Money Moment...

Jeopardy! round...

MAY DAYS BEVERAGES I LOVE METAL HISTORICAL
ENTERTAINMENT
PEOPLE 1, 2, 3, "GO"

Daily Double: $800 Historical Entertainment. Catherine's been up front all game long with $4600, $2400 on Elyse. She bets $3400 on this, "Alex"... Yeah, Catherine's through playing games. Here's the clue. "The King's Speech" featured Timothy Spall as this quippy future prime minister. "Who is Winston Churchill?" Correct for $8000!

At the end of Jeopardy!...

$3,600 $10,200 $5,400
Elyse Catherine Rose

Looks like that pep talk that Alex gave Catherine at the end of yesterday's show paid off. Double Jeopardy! round...

TERM

Daily Double #1: $1600 Also a Musical Term. On $4800, Elyse cannot catch Catherine, but she can pass Rose. She bets... everything! For $9600 or nothing... this adjective can mean "very useful" or "performed without vocals". "What is instrumental?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $9600!

Video Daily Double #2: $1200 Pre-Civil War America. Rose has $7800 to Catherine's $15,400, but Elyse has been on fire with $24,800. Rose bets, as well she should, $4000 on this from Jimmy... "St. Louis' Old Courthouse was the scene of two trials involving this slave; he won his freedom in the second trial, but the Supreme Court held otherwise, helping spark the Civil War." "Who is Dred Scott?" Correct for $11,800!

At the end of the Double Jeopardy! round...

$28,400 $15,400 $11,800
Elyse Catherine Rose

Let's do some quick math in our heads here. Let's say Rose bets it all, she has $23,600, added to her $12,400, gives her $36,000. Catherine does likewise, she ends up with $40,800. Elyse bets NOTHING.... and she still has $51,600. It's HER TOURNAMENT TO LOSE.

Final Jeopardy! category: AMERICAN HISTORY

 

WHEN THE FUTURE STATE OF IOWA BECAME PART OF THE UNITED STATES, THIS MAN WAS PRESIDENT

 

Correct response: who was Thomas Jefferson?

Rose's response: who is Taylor Jefferson? CORRECT. Wager: $11,800. Total: $23,600.
Catherine's response: who was Thomas Jefferson? CORRECT. Wager: $5600. Total: $21,000.
Elyse's response: who is Jefferson? CORRECT. Wager doesn't matter...

... but for the record... she bet almost all of it.
