Preliminaries: Levine/Noe/Pink - July 17

While many kids are either getting ready to head back to the classroom or off enjoying their summer vacation, fifteen of the best in the nation are off to sunny California for one reason... to be the last person standing in the second Teen Tournament this season.

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, Andy Hutchins is the only one guaranteed a spot in the semis. One of these three... or perhaps two... or maybe all three... will join him...

Final Jeopardy category: 19th CENTURY AMERICA

Correct response: what is the Pledge of Allegiance?

Ben's response: what is the Pledge of Allegiance? RIGHT. Wager: $8600. Total: $17,400.
Amy's response: what is America the Beautiful? WRONG. Wager: $9600. Total: $800.
Aiden's response: what is the Pledge of Allegiance? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter.

SEMI-FINALIST: Aiden Pink

Mr. A says: The game belonged to the Geek in the Pink. If he can keep up this performance, he could easily make the finals. That's all contingent on who he faces, though. Ben could also make semis if the rest of the field performs as Amy did.
