Finals: Lair/Koolik/Xie - Part 2
August 1
Last April, 15 of America's best and brightest teenagers descended upon Sony Pictures Studios in LA to compete in the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament. Then 9 got a shot out of those. Now we're down to the final three... Jeff Xie overcame the odds and made his return trip worth something, joining returning champions Cooper Fair and Alan Koolik in the hunt for $75,000, a trophy, and the title of 2014 Jeopardy! Teen Tournament Champion.

Second place gets $25,000. Third gets $15,000.

And now it's about to get real... the deciding game...

Daily Double: $800 The Story of His Life. Jeff has $7000 to Alan's $3600. He bets $2000 on this: a Pennsylvania businessman, "Young Chocolatier." "Who is Hershey?" RIGHT for $9000!

At the end of Jeopardy!...

Cooper Alan Jeff

Double Jeopardy! round...

1950-2000 THE ARTS SYMPTOMS OF

WITH
"MOM" & "DAD"

Daily Double #1: $800 The Arts. Cooper is in third with $4000, and he's going for it on this: praise the Lord! Over a century old, this American form of Christian music combines elements of blues, jazz & spirituals. "What is gospel?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $8000!

Daily Double #2: $1200 Anthoropology. Jeff still has the lead with $15,000 to $9600 for Cooper. He bets $3000 on this: Elsie Parsons studied these "apartment"-dwelling Indians of the Southwest, including the Zuni. "What are Pueblos?" RIGHT for $18,000!

At the end of Double Jeopardy!...

$15,600 $14,600 $19,600
Cooper Alan Jeff

Now this is interesting. If Cooper doubles, he would still be short by about $4000 of the other two if they bet nothing. HOWEVER... If Alan doubles AND Jeff doubles, they will force each other into a tie situation. Wagering has never been more important than right now.

Final Jeopardy! category: AWARDS & HONORS

+31,000 +29,200 +39,200
