Quarterfinals: Briggs/Liu/Robinson - February 5

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 $5000, while quarterfinalists are guaranteed $2500 for participation. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

(C-Note: You may notice the cruddy state of the images on this first night. Well, let this be a lesson... if your DVR or your photo capture card doesn't work... make sure you have alternatives, such as a VCR and a digital camera. We'll do better next time...)
