It's perhaps the hardest part-time job
that any teenager could have... but at the same time, it's the most
lucrative. Instead of enough for a used car and some gas to put in it,
we're talking $75,000.
Teenagers from across the country have
tried out by the boatload by taking "The Test" online at Jeopardy.com.
Now the best 15 of them have come together at the Sony stages in Los
Angeles to compete for $75,000 and the right to be called this season's
Teen Champion. Second place gets $25,000. Third gets $15,000.
Semifinalists who make it to week 2 will receive $10,000. All of this
week's players will receive $5000 and 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.
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.
But this season's Teen Tournament comes
with a twist. The quarterfinals will be held in home base in Culver
City, while the semifinalists will not only win $10,000, but also a trip
to compete across the country... in WASHINGTON, DC!
It's been American Juniors all week, but
at the end of today's show, we will have your final nine. And you may
want to pay attention to how it ends.
Category #1 will, of course, be
delivered by the First Lady.
Daily Double: $400 Know Your State
Borders! Evan(!) has been on fire with $2400. He makes it true on this: Hannah's
leaving Montana heading east into this state that borders Canada. "What is North
Dakota?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $4800!
At the end of Jeopardy!...
Double Jeopardy! round...
ALL WE NEED
IS A TITLE
AT THE MALL
Daily Double #1: $1600 Biblical
People. It's a must closer game now, as Gabriela has $7600, $600 more than Rob
and $200 less than Evan. She bets $2200 on this: this shepherd became King
Saul's personal musician & armor bearer. "Who is David?" CORRECT for $9800!
Daily Double #2: $1600 At the Mall.
Rob has $13,000 and is now the man in the middle with $400 more than Evan and
$800 less than Gabriela. He fronts $2000 on this: get a birthday card for mom at
this store chain founded in 1950 & named for an early form of paper. "What is
Hallmark?" No, it was Papyrus, dropping him to $13,000.
At the end of Double Jeopardy!...
Final Jeopardy! category: THE
IN 1777 AN
OPPONENT WROTE OF HIM, "MONEY IS THIS MAN'S GOD, AND TO GET ENOUGH OF IT HE
WOULD SACRIFICE HIS COUNTRY"

Rob's response: who was Hamilton? WRONG. Wager: $11,000. Total: $0.
Evan's response: who is Alexander Hamilton? WRONG. Wager: $1200.
Gabriela's response: who Alexander Hamilton? WRONG. Wager: $8000. Total:
And for the first time in many
moons... we have a TOURNAMENT TIEBREAKER SITUATION. Per the rules governing
Jeopardy! tournament play, there must be ONE winner, and right now, it looks
like the wild card slots are going to hold, SO the person who gives the correct
question to this tiebreaker clue (and it MUST be a correct question, no defaults
here) will get on the plane to DC. The loser... goes home.
