Quarterfinals: Fritz/Gerlomes/Urban - February 6

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.

Double Jeopardy! categories:

'90s NEWS WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS 19th CENTURY AMERICAN LIT HEALTH MATTERS NATIONAL NAMES YOU CAN SPEAK JAPANESE

Daily Double #1: $1200 19th Century American Lit. Eliza is in third with $6600, but with Stephen at $7600 and Jeffrey at $11,100, she can easily take the lead if she's brave enough. She only wagers $1000 to tie Stephen, though. The clue: "The Legend of" this place is set in "Greensburgh... which is more generally" known as Tarry Town. "What is... Sleepy Hollow?" Got it for the tie and $7600.

To add insult to injury, Eliza gets a clue in about Norway as Stephen was frantically buzzing in. Timing issues will get you.

Stephen: "I'll have the last clue." Okay.

Daily Double #2: $2000 Health Matters. Another close match can be decided before Final Jeopardy! as Stephen has $12,800 to Jeffrey's $15,500 and Eliza's $10,000.  He only wagers $1000. The clue: very simply, myalgia is pain in any one of these, often due to a stress injury. "What is a muscle." Right for $13,800.

At the end of the Double Jeopardy! Round...

Final Jeopardy category: THE US MILITARY

 

THIS BRANCH USES MORE FUEL THAN THE REST OF THE MILITARY COMBINED

 

Correct response: what is the Air Force?

Eliza’s response: what is the US Air Force? RIGHT. Wager: $00000. Total: $10,000
Stephen’s response: what is the Air Force? RIGHT. Wager: $607. Total: $14,407
Jeffrey’s response: what is the Navy. WRONG. Wager: $15,500. Total: $0.

Automatic semi-finalist: STEPHEN FRITZ.

Mr. A says: By the skin of his teeth, Stephen lives to play another day, but had Jeffrey gotten the correct answer, he would've been a serious contender. Just serves as a reminder that the game never ends. Stephen hopes to take that lesson into the next round if he's to stand any chance against current leader Hank Robinson.

So far, Heidi Liu is still in the wild-card running with $14,980, followed by Kristin Briggs $13,801, and Eliza with $10,000.
