Preliminaries: Chakravarthy/Peña/Schlax -
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
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, Camille Bullock, Joseph Graumann, and
Iddoshe Hirpa all made their case for semifinalist. But only Iddoshe prevailed.
Will we see another such race today?

that was said about the last group can be applied to this group as well. It was
a close one all the way through. Even Kenny was astute in wagering
too bad he
got it wrong.

Joseph Graumann ($11,000) and Sebastian Johnson ($10,700) are on the fringe. It
all depends on tomorrows show. See you then!
