Semifinals: Pink/Federman/Ackerman - July 24

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. Those fifteen... only nine remain now as they compete in this win-or-go-home week for a spot in the two-day final.

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. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

So far, Kyle Neblett is the only person promised a spot on Thursday. One of these three will join him.

Double Jeopardy! categories:

JULY WHAT'S ON TV? LAW ENFORCEMENT LITERATURE COMPANIES YOUNGER THAN YOU SYNONYMS

Daily Double #1: $800 Synonyms. Meryl has just been tearing up the board trying to catch up with Aiden. She managed to do just that on the last clue and now, she leads with $12,200 to his $11,800. Meryl bets $4000 on this: synonyms for "crowd" include throng, flock & this word that can also mean an infatuation. Meryl blanks on "crush", leaving her with $8200.

Correct response: what is the giant panda?

Lisa's response: what is a panda? RIGHT. Wager: $3799. Total: $7599.
Aiden's response: what is the white elephant? WRONG. Wager: $16,200. Total: $0. Yeah, wave bye-bye.
Meryl's response: what is a black panda? WRONG. Wager: $10,601. Total: $11,1999.

FINALIST: Meryl Federman

Mr. A says: This was almost a two-person match from the start. Just so happens that those two got the final wrong. and whilst Aiden was playing with his ... manhood (never trust the bravado of someone who does the Rocky dance in his contestant intro), Meryl was playing with her head. That's why she's in the final. She's got some stiff competition in Kyle Neblett, but it's nothing she can't handle if she plays like she did today.
