The last five games saw teenagers from
all across the country square off in a battle royale in the grand
tradition of their gladiatorial forbearers to see who would emerge
triumphant in the great quiz show wars of the 21st century. Now nine
remain in the hunt for the coveted trophy and $75,000.
Second place gets $25,000. Third gets $15,000.
Semifinalists who make it to this week will receive a guarantee of $10,000. All
tournament participants 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.
This is week 2 of the standard two-week affair, meaning that the five
game winners and the four wild-cards will meet to compete for a spot in
the two-day final. Basically, it's win or go home.
Barrett Block is in the wings waiting for
his next challenger...

Daily Double: $1000 Religions.
Kelton, who would've run the category were it not for the $800 clue, is the only
one in money with $400. He bets the level on this: members of this Indian
religion are expected to join the Khalsa order & are not allowed to cut their
hair. "What is Sikhism?" GOOD FOR $1400!
Joe ends up running the Major League
Sports Cities for $7200. "And I don't even like sports."

Literature. Tori is going all in on her $2400 for this: in this futuristic but

Western Europe". "What is 'A Clockwork Orange'?" No, it was "Brave New World"
leaving her at zero.
Daily Double #2: $800 Biology.
Kelton leads with $12,200. He fronts $5000 on this: normally, when the glucose
level in the blood is high, the pancreas secretes this hormone to lower it.
