Today is

Quarterfinals: Bartman/Dziuba/Jeffrey - February 7

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.

So far, Hank Robinson and Stephen Fritz are the only two people assured of a spot, but at the end of today's match, we'll know someone who definitely ISN'T going on next week.

Jeopardy! categories:

BIBLICAL SPEAKERS BUREAU POPULAR CULTURE TECH-KNOW I WROTE THAT THE ZODIAC FROM THE LATIN

Daily Double: $400 Biblical Speakers Bureau. It's close as we're wrapping up the Jeopardy! round. Caroline, in a tie for second with $4200 with Myles can take the lead away from Allison ($5400). She bets $2200 on this: "Tell me, I pray thee, where in thy great strength lieth?" "Who is Delilah?" And she's in the lead with $6400!

At the end of the Jeopardy! round...

$7200 $5400 $4200

Double Jeopardy! categories:

NATIVE AMERICANS HAIL TO THE CHIEF TEENS UNDER THE MICROSCOPE WINTER SPORTS ISLANDS YOU GET AN "F"

Daily Double #1: $2000 Islands. Allison, with $6600 to Myles' $9800 and Caroline's $14,800, can't overtake the lead, but she can move into second, nipping at Caroline's heels. She wagers $5000 on this: this third-largest island in the world is shared by Brunei, Malaysia & Indonesia. "What is Java?" Correct: what is Borneo, leaving her with $1600.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Native Americans. Allison, at her current total, could theoretically make a play for wild-card if she is all-in and correct both here AND in the next $2000 clue, the round's last. "What do I have to lose? True Daily Double." That's a girl. The clue... with some 280,000 members, this tribe, largely concentrated in Oklahoma, is the largest in the US. "What is the Sioux?"

It's over. Correct: What is the Cherokee?

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

$19,600 -$2000 $15,800
Caroline Allison Myles

And sure enough, Allison will not be in the running for wild-card. But perhaps Caroline and Myles may be.

Final Jeopardy category: SCIENTISTS

 

ON THE FRONT LINES DURING WWI, SHE DROVE AMBULANCES THAT SHE HAD HELPED EQUIP WITH X-RAY MACHINES

 

Correct response: who was Marie Curie?

Myles’s response: who is Marie Curie? RIGHT. Wager: $4008. Total: $17,808
Caroline’s response: who is Marie Curie? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter.

Automatic semi-finalist: CAROLINE BARTMAN

Mr. A says: It's just another one of those instances when a psychological hiccup could make you really have a bad day. Allison had the right wager going into the final, but you can tell by the body language that she was purely going off cuff. Meanwhile, one to watch out for is Myles, as he amassed quite a total by simply playing the game straight. Could be a portent of things to come.

So far, the wild-card bracket consists of Myles ($17,808), Heidi Liu ($14,980), Kristin Briggs ($13,801), and Eliza Urban ($10,000). Tomorrow, two of them will guarantee themselves a spot next week.
