"Round 2: McManus/Schiffer/Groff" - May 6

In round one, 45 players won their games. Now they join nine seeded opponents in Jeopardy! lore for 18 more game. The 18 winners then face off for six slots. The two winners of those semifinal games have a date with destiny in the form of one Ken Jennings for a three-day final. The winner of those games wins $2 million. Second place is guaranteed $500,000, while third place is guaranteed $250,000.

No wild cards, no second chances. It's (my favorite words when it comes to Jeopardy! tourneys) win or go home.

Today, the final seat of the Elite 18 is filled.

APRIL McMANUS
Homemaker
Hertfordshire, England
Won $22,801 (4/4)
ED SCHIFFER
Attorney
San Francisco
Won $17,400 (3/3)
JONATHAN GROFF

Jeopardy! categories: All Aboard!, TV: Who Played 'em?, Fabrics, The Boris Yeltsin File, Videopourri, A Spot of "T"

Daily Double: $800 All Aboard!. Ed ($600 to Jonathan's $3400 and April's $2600) bets $1000. The clue: ride in restored 1930s passenger cars on the Oil Creek and Titusville Railroad in this state. Ed's guess: "What is Pennsylvania?" Correct for $1600.

End of Round:
April - $4400
Ed - $2600
Jonathan - $3800

Double Jeopardy! categories: The 16th Century, Elvis, Ungulates, Classical Musicians, Painters' Colors, Word Origins

Daily Double #1: $1200 Painters' Colors. April ($11,200 over Ed's $8600 and Jonathan's $3000), with a look that says "Why me?", fronts $2000. Clue: Whistler's 1871 "Arrangement in" these 2 colors (no. 1). April's guess: "What are grey and black?" Correct for $13,200.

Daily Double #2: $2000 Ungulates. April ($14,400 over Ed's $9000 and Jonathan's $3000), with another look that says "Why me?", says... "No, no. $100." Clue: unlike the giraffe, which lives in the savannah, this smaller relative lives in the dense jungle. April's guess: "I don't have any idea." Correct response: What is the okapi. April drops to the dreadful amount of... $14,300. Fortunately, it's the last clue in that subject.

End of Round:
April - $15,900
Ed - $9000
Jonathan - $5000

The winner is guaranteed $20,000 at least, while the runners-up will get $10,000 each.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Fictional Animals. Answer: the name of this character, introduced in 1894, is from the Hindi for "bear". Correct response: Who is Baloo?

Ed's question: What is Pooh? (WRONG, but funny) Wager: $5000. Final score: $0.
Jonathan's question: What is Winnie the? (WRONG) Wager: $8400. Final score: $600.
April's question: What is Baloo? (RIGHT) Wager: $2101. Final score: $18,000.

With that, April gets another $20,000 ($42,801 so far) and the final seat amongst Dan Melia, Steve Chernicoff, Michael Rooney, Michael Daunt, Shane Whitlock, Brian Moore, Jerome Vered, Robert Slaven, Matt Zielenski, Chris Miller, Lan Djang, Brad Rutter, Grace Veach, Pam Mueller, John Cuthbertson Frank Spangenberg, and Phil Yellman in the Elite 18.

But which of these players will make it to the semifinals? The next six games will tell the tale as we get closer to a $2 million showdown with, as somebody put it, Kenny Gameshow. See you next week!
