Semifinals: Hinchen/Walter/Jeffrey - February 13

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. Who'll join Ben Schenkel in the finals? Let's find out...

Jeopardy! categories:

ELECTION 2006 MONSTER MASH YOU'RE IN THIS COUNTRY IS... SHOW ME THE MUNCHIES! AMERICAN HISTORY RHYME TIME

Daily Double: $800 Election 2006. No one has above $1000, and Naomi leads with $600 to David's $200 and Myles' $400. She bets it all on this: African-American Keith Ellison of Minnesota is the 1st Congressman of this faith, to which he converted at 19. "What is Baptist?" Nope, Congressman Ellison is a Muslim. Naomi's left with nothing.

At the end of the Jeopardy! round...

Double Jeopardy! categories:

BIOLOGY FAMOUS YOUNG WOMEN LET'S GO SHOPPING THE FRENCH PLENTY OF TIME CROSSWORD CLUES "C"

Daily Double #1: $1600 Crossword Clues "C". Naomi, $3600 against David's $8000 and Myles' $5600, can move into second place and closer to David if she goes all-in here. She doesn't. She bets $2000 to tie Myles. The clue: to urge, perhaps to drink certain sodas (4). "What is Coke?" Close, it was coax, leaving her with $1600.

Daily Double #2: $1200 The French. David's the clear leader with $18,800 against Myles' $9200 and Naomi's $2400. He wagers $3500 on this: because the Seine flows northwest, then southwest, Parisians call the 2 sides this and this, not north & south. "What are rive gauche & rive droite?" Right for $22,300!

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

$2,800 $24,300 $10,000
Naomi David Myles

Another game, another lock. This time, it's David, who has a safety net of $4299.

Final Jeopardy category: 20th CENTURY AUTHORS

 

THIS AUTHOR WAS BORN IN 1926, THE DAUGHTER OF AMASA, AN ALABAMA LAWYER, & FRANCES, WHOSE MAIDEN NAME WAS FINCH

 

Correct response: who is Harper Lee?

Naomi's response: who is Mark Twain? WRONG. Wager: $2800. Total: $0.
Myles's response: who is Harper Lee? RIGHT. Wager: leet-bet ($1337). Total: $11,337.
David's response: who is Harper Lee? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter.

Finalist: DAVID WALTER

Mr. A says: If you were to replace "David" with "Ben", then you would have yesterday's game, where a strong wild-card that couldn't be caught overtakes a game champ who lost focus to take a final spot.

Who'll join Ben and David in the finals? Stay tuned...
