Today is

Preliminaries: Bullock/Graumann/Hirpa - February 8

Fifteen of the brightest teenagers from all across the country have descended upon Los Angeles to compete in the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament, where one will walk away with $75,000 cash money and the mantle of Teen Champion.

Another standard two-week affair awaits as the first runner-up receives $25,000 at least, while the second runner-up wins at least $15,000.

Semifinalists are guaranteed at least $10,000, while quarterfinalists are guaranteed $5000 for participation. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

Yesterday, Matt Klein established himself as a force to be reckoned with. Will anyone break out of today's game?

Jeopardy! Categories: World Geography, All in the Celebrity Family Math, Stock Symbol Primer, Cooking Class, Word Origins.

Daily Double: $800 Word Origins. Camille ($7200 over Iddoshe's $4600 and Joseph's $600) fronts $1800. The clue: originally one who kept legal records for the crown, now it's a public officer who investigates deaths. Camille's response: "What is... a coroner?" Correct for $9000!

End of round:
Camille: $9200
Joseph: $1600
Iddoshe: $7400

Double Jeopardy! Categories: The American Revolution, Never Too Old for Cartoon, The School Play: Romeo & Juliet, Get Involves, College of Letters, Alphabetically First.

Daily Double #1: $1200 The School Play: Romeo & Juliet. Camille ($10,400 to Iddoshe's $17,800 and Joseph's $3600) bets $3600. The clue: as the cast party broke up, the director quoted, "Good night, good night! Parting is such" this. Camille's response: "What is sweet sorrow?" Correct for $14,000.

Daily Double #2: $800 The American Revolution. Joseph ($5200 to Iddoshe's $17,800 and Camille's $14,000) wagers $4000. The clue: a scout during the war, John Greenwood is more famous as one of these; Washington was a patient. Joseph's response: "What is a doctor?" More specific... "What is a dentist?" Correct for $9200.

Alex says it's a close game, but it's only a half-truth, as it's only close if you carry two X-chromosomes. But don't discount the scores as we could see all three back next week...

End of round:
Camille: $17,200
Joseph: $8800
Iddoshe: $19,800

Final Jeopardy! Category: Milestones. The clue: in 1994, 25 years after this event, 1 participant said, "For one crowning moment, we were creatures of the cosmic ocean". Correct response: What is the moon landing of Apollo 11?

Joseph's response: "What is the Apollo 11?" RIGHT. Wager: $2200. Total: $11,000
Camille's response: "What is man walking on the moon?" RIGHT. Wager: $3800. Total: $21,000.
Iddoshe's response: "What is first man on the moon?" RIGHT. Wager: $6200. Total: $26,000. SEMI-FINALIST

If Matt knew how to answer questions, then Iddoshe knew how to wager. But don't count out Joseph OR Camille in that department either. With their scores, they both knock out Loren Loiacono and Katie James AND take Sebastian Johnson's place on the wild-card leaderboard, Camille first, Joseph second. Lauren Romero, at $7201, is now on the outside looking in. 

Safe to say that any match involving today's players next week ought to be a good one.
