Preliminaries: Keller/Thieu/Gard
February 15

The fifteen people you are about to see on this stage in the next two weeks have done what countless others could not do. They are not just champions, but in some cases, they are mega champions. Among them, they've won over $1.5 million in prize money. They are the best of the last season and a half and this week, they're coming back for $250,000 and the right to be called CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS.

Second place will be awarded $100,000, while third gets $50,000. Semifinalists who make it to week 2 will receive at least $10,000. Everyone will receive at least $5000. In total, a prize pool of almost half a million dollars will be awarded over the next two weeks. 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.

Paul Nelson and Colby Burnett have their ticket stamped. Will the #1 seed get his tonight?

Daily Double: $600 Genetics. Monica finds it out of the TV timeout with $1800 to Jason's $4600. She's so excited, she's going to make it true. Here's the clue: in 1986 the US issued the first patent on a plant produced through genetic engineering, a hybrid of this grain. "What is wheat?" No, it was corn, leaving her with zero.

Daily Double #1: $1600 Lakes. Jason has $10,000 and a $6000 lead over David. He wagers $4000 on this: to create this lake in the 1960s, historical ruins such as Abu Simbel were moved to higher ground. "What is Lake Nasser?" Correct for $14,000!

Daily Double #2: $1200 American History. Jason still leads with $17,600. The others aren't even close. He bets $5400 on this: in a 1779 battle in the North Sea, he captured the Serapis, a British man-of-war. "Who is John Paul Jones?" CORRECT for $23,000!

Final Jeopardy! category: FAMOUS WOMEN

 

HER 1886 OBITUARY IN A MASSACHUSETTS PAPER SAID, "VERY FEW IN THE VILLAGE, EXCEPT AMONG THE OLDER INHABITANTS, KNEW" HER "PERSONALLY"

 

Correct response: who was Emily Dickinson?

David's response: who was ? WRONG. Wager: $2300. Total: $100.
Monica's response: who was Emily Dickinson? CORRECT. Wager: $1200. Total: $11,000.
Jason's response: who was Dickinson? CORRECT. Wager doesn't matter

Semifinalist: Jason Keller

This was Jason's game from start to finish, proving why he won as much as he did in as long as he did. He is one to watch next week as we begin semifinal play. Meanwhile, Monica may have a shot at a semi slot, but she and David Menchaca are on the outside looking in right now.

Next week, the preliminaries continue.
