So you want to play some J!, but you're not yet the 18-year-old that is required to do so? NO PROBLEM! That's where the Teen Tournament comes in.

Teenagers from across the country have tried out by the boatload by taking "The Test" online at Jeopardy.com. Now the best 15 of them have come together at the Sony stages in Los Angeles to compete for $75,000 and the right to be called this season's Teen Champion. Second place gets $25,000. Third gets $15,000. Semifinalists who make it to week 2 will receive $10,000. All of this week's players will receive $5000. All money will be determined, as always, by how far the players go in the tournament.

This is a standard two-week affair, meaning that all 15 will play this week, with the five game winners joining the four highest-scoring non-winners in a win-or-go-home race to the two-day final.

So far, only Anurag Kashyap has a return ticket to play again. Who on earth will join him?

Apt name for Casey. Jeopardy! round has these six...

STATE THE LANDMARK IT WASN'T RATED R ON THE MONEY TEEN CUISINE ANCIENT HISTORY LITERARY RHYME TIME

Daily Double: $800 On the Money. Bradley is holding second with $3000 to Brandon's $3400 and Casey's $2800. He wagers $500 on this: there's a picture of the Bolshoi Theater on the note worth 100 of these. "What is the ruble?" Correct for $3500!

At the end of the Jeopardy! round...

$3,600 $4,800 $4,100
Casey Brandon Bradley

Double Jeopardy! categories:

A TESTAMENT TO YOUTH WOMEN IN SPORTS BODY WORKS ONCE UPON A NOVEMBER GUINNESS RECORDS FRENCH

Daily Double #1: $1600 Body Works. Bradley has been owning the board with $6900 to Brandon's $4800 and Casey's $2400. He bets $3000 on this: these 3 pairs of glands, including the sublingual ones, are what make your mouth water. "What are the 'saliviary' glands?" Right response, wrong pronunciation. It was "salivary", leaving him with $3900.

Daily Double #2: $1200 Guinness Records. Bradley manages to find the third one with $10,300 against Brandon's $9200. Casey, should she hold her total to the end, is able to play spoiler with $4000. He bets $2000 on this: the most votes cast in a national election occurred in May 2004 when 387 million voted in this country. "What is India?" Correct for $12,300!

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

$800 $12,800 $20,300
Casey Brandon Bradley

At this point, Casey can only do one thing... Throw a Hail Mary.

Final Jeopardy! category: EARTH FACTS

 

BECAUSE OF THE EARTH'S ROTATION, A PERSON AT SEA LEVEL IS LIGHTEST WHEN STANDING AT THIS DEGREE OF LATITUDE

 

Correct response: what is zero degrees?

Casey's response: what is zero? RIGHT. Wager: $800. Total: $1600.
Brandon's response: what is 0? RIGHT. Wager: $7200. Total: $20,000.
Bradley's response: what is zero? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter.

SEMI-FINALIST: Bradley Silverman

Casey either came into this game ill-prepared or not totally there. In any case, after the half, she became a non-factor and this became a two-person rally. Expect both of them to fare as well as they did next week.

Third quarterfinal tomorrow.
