Preliminaries: Gandhi/Nicolai/Varallo - July 18

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 and Aiden Pink have secured their spot in next week's semi-final matchup, and it looks like the other two from Monday's show may join them. That is, unless one of these three ladies have their way.

Jeopardy! categories:

AMERICANA OFF TO THE MOVIES WHERE'S THAT? HOW WAS SCHOOL TODAY? FINE THAT'S SO CLICHE!

Video Daily Double: $1000 How Was School Today?. Before the clue, Kriti was penalized for not satisfying both parts of the clue as it was given, so she ends up with $4600. The good news: she still leads. The bad news: with Amy at $3600 and Lindsey at $1600, it's only just. She wagers $1000 on this: I daydreamed in the geography class about this warm region--defined as lying between two famous lines of latitude. "What is the Equator?" What are the tropics? is correct, leaving Kriti with $3600.

"What are greenhouse gases?" Correct for $9300!

Daily Double #2: $1600 Insect Invasion. She leads with $16,100 after a late-round rally. Amy has $7000, while Lindsey has $6000. She bets $1100 on this: of the one million species of insects, more than 300,000 are of this type, including the ladybug. "What are beetles?" Correct for $17,200!

Final Jeopardy category: ORGANIZATIONS

 

IN 2003 ALLIED COMMAND EUROPE & ALLIED COMMAND ATLANTIC, PARTS OF THIS ORGANIZATION, MERGED

 

Correct response: what is NATO?

Lindsey's response: what is NATO? RIGHT. Wager: $6000. Total: $12,000.
Amy's response: what is NATO? RIGHT. Wager: $6200. Total: $14,000.
Kriti's response: what is NATO? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter.

SEMI-FINALIST: Kriti Gandhi

Mr. A says: Well, this was the first game in this series when the eventual winner had to work for it all the way throughout, as Kriti rallied back to fend off another rally back attempt by another player, Amy. Kudos to Amy as well, as she knocks off Lindsey. But it comes at a price. Now Amy is a bubble player, as she hopes that the remaining six don't come to play.
