Preliminaries: Henderson/Maranges/Varallo - July 19

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, Aiden Pink, and Kriti Gandhi have their tickets punched for the semis. We know who definitely won't be joining them, and by the end of this match, we know who definitely will.

Jeopardy! categories:

LET'S VISIT INDIA CELEBS WASHINGTON, LINCOLN OR GEORGE W. BUSH SUMMERTIME THE SHAPE OF THINGS RHYME TIME

Daily Double: $1000 The Shape of Things. Seems like everyone was going everywhere looking for it, but Tommy with a $200 lead over Kristiana finds it. He's got $2800 to her $2600, while Kyle has $1400. And Tommy is betting the whole shoot'n'match on this: it's another term for a spiral, especially when talking about spiraled strands of DNA. "What is a heliacase?" Nope, it's a double helix, or a helix. Tommy goes back to zero.

Daily Double #1: $1600 Name That Planet. Kyle ... after Kristiana cheers... leads with $7800, more than double her total ($3600). Tommy has $2600. Kyle fronts $2200 on this: a year on this planet is only 88 days long. "What is Mercury?" Correct for $10,000!

Daily Double #2: $800 Possible SAT Vocabulary. Tommy gets back to $2600 against Kristiana's $400 and Kyle's $14,800. He bets it all again. The clue: the body of songs a chanteuse is prepared to sing or of plays a company is prepared to put on. "What is... " A repertoire. He's back to zero.

Final Jeopardy category: THE 50 STATES

 

IT WAS THE ONLY STATE PHYSICALLY & POLITICALLY FORMED DIRECTLY BECAUSE OF THE CIVIL WAR

 

Correct response: what is West Virginia?

Kristiana's response: what is West Virginia? RIGHT. Wager: $399. Total: $799.
Tommy's response: what is West Virginia? RIGHT. Wager: $400. Total: $800.
Kyle's response: what is West Virginia? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter.

SEMI-FINALIST: Kyle Neblett

Mr. A says: Kyle ascended to the championship when the other two simply fell apart, Kristiana gradually and Tommy on account of two Daily Doubles. But he won't be afforded that luxury in the semis, so he better beef up.

We can now also note that Greg and Meryl from Monday's show will join our four champions next week, leaving Amy V from yesterday and Ben from Tuesday on the bubble.
