Semifinals: Robinson/Bartman/Schenkel - February 12

Fifteen of the brightest teenagers from all across the country have been whittled down to nine, as the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament continues. One of them 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.

No more wild cards. No more second chances. No more room for error. It's win... or go home. Our first of three semifinal matches contains...

Jeopardy! categories:

BODIES OF WATER SCREEN TEENS SHAPE UP NAME THAT POET STAMPS LETTER PERFECT

Daily Double: $600 Stamps. Caroline and Ben are the only ones in the blue (Hank has -$600), but with $800 to Ben's $5800, the best she can hope for is a $1000 wager. Caroline goes with that on this: appropriately, the 2007 love stamp features this Hershey's candy, celebrating its 100th anniversary. "What is a Hershey's Kiss?" Right for $1800.

At the end of the Jeopardy! round...

Double Jeopardy! categories:

BODIES OF BRONZE & MARBLE LAST NAME'S THE SAME LIES, THEFT & FRAUD ANCIENT HISTORY: THE 1980s IT'S ELEMENTAL NOT THE DREADED SPELLING CATEGORY

Daily Double #1: $1600 It's Elemental. Ben, with $7800 to Caroline's $4600 and Hank's $1400, says those three magic words: "True Daily Double." The clue for double or nothing: this element, Pm, was named for the guy who gave fire to humanity in Greek legend. "What is Promethium?" Right for $15,600.

Daily Double #2: $800 Bodies of Bronze & Marble. With only $3000 to Caroline's $5800 and Ben's $16,000, Hank's got his work cut out for him. He bets $2000 on this: this "contemplative" bronze by Rodin was originally called "The Poet." "What is 'The Thinker'?" Correct for $5000.

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

$10,200 $6,200 $28,000
Hank Caroline Ben

Looks like a lock situation for Ben. He can wager as much as $7599 and still come out as today's finalist.

Final Jeopardy category: STATE NAMES

 

THE NAME OF THIS STATE IS DERIVED FROM AN INDIAN WORD MEANING "GREAT LAKE"

 

Correct response: what is Michigan?

Caroline’s response: what is Utah? WRONG. Wager: $6000. Total: $200
Hank's response: what is Minnesota? WRONG. Wager: $9800. Total: $400
Ben’s response: what is Michigan? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter.

Finalist: BEN SCHENKEL

Mr. A says: This is just one of those instances when one person emerges as the aggressor and just refuses to let up. It's been said that whoever wins today will win it all, and thanks to an impressive knowledge base and a killer Daily Double, Ben's now in with a fighting chance.

Semi-final #2 coming...
