Today is

Semifinals: Klein/Bullock/Johnson - February 13

Fifteen of the brightest teenagers from all across the country have been cut to the final nine, as they compete for one of three spots at the finals at the end of the week.

We started with 15 who had 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. Now only Camille Bullock, Papa Chakravarthy, Joseph Graumann, Iddoshe Hirpa, David Hoffelmeyer, Sebastian Johnson, Matt Klein, Andrew Kreitz, and Allison Pea remain. For three of them, a trip to the two-day final and a possible $75,000 payday at least. For the other six, back on the school bus home.

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.

Today, the first of the semis... Remember, no second chances... It's win or go home.

Daily Double: $600 Alliteration Station. Sebastian ($2600 to Camille's $5800 and Matt's $3800) bets $1000. The clue: an appointed hour to play golf. Sebastian’s response: “What is tee time?” Correct for $3600.

End of round:
Matt: $3800
Camille: $7600
Sebastian: $3600

Double Jeopardy! categories: Women on US Stamps, Movie Title Translations, National Inventors Hall of Fame, Julius Caesar, Love Poetry, Words in (the) Encyclopedia (correct responses are made up of the letters in "encyclopedia").

Daily Double #1: $1600 National Inventors Hall of Fame. Matt ($9400 to Camille's $9600 and Sebastian's $2800) bets $3000. The clue: a 1975 inductee, he gave us "an electronic alphabet that could carry messages". Matt's response: "Who is Morse?" Correct for $12,400.

Daily Double #2: $1200 Julius Caesar. Camille ($12,400 to Matt’s $14,800 and Sebastian’s $2800) fronts $3000 herself for the lead. The clue: in his early 20s, Julius Caesar traveled to this "colossal" island to study rhetoric under Molon. Camille’s response: "What is Mallorca?" Correct response: what is Rhodes? Camille drops to $9400.

It's all gravy as Matt pours on the heat to end the round in first place...

End of round:
Matt: $22,000
Camille: $8600
Sebastian: $6800

Final Jeopardy! category: The 50 States. The clue: since 1776, it has been the only US state to be the most populous state for more than a century. Correct response: What is New York?

Sebastian’s response: What is New York? RIGHT. Wager: $6799. Total: $13,599.
Camille’s response: What is Virginia? WRONG. Wager: $1400. Total: $7200.
Matt’s response: What is Virginia? WRONG. Wager: $0. Total: $22,000. FINALIST

Simply put, Matt could not be caught. He played a solid Double Jeopardy! round, but if he's to stand any chance at winning the $75,000, he needs to play 30 minutes...

Tomorrow, the next of the three.
