Jeopardy!: Tonight's kid contestants:
Sophie Marianiello (Newark, DE)
Jacob Joyner (Quantico, VA)
Zachary Baumgartner (Deer Park, NY)
Tuesday's opening categories:
EARLY AMERICAN HISTORY
IT'S ALL IN THE GAME
HEADS OF STATE
NAMED FOR THEIR LOOKS
Joyner finds the Daily Double early on under the $800 Early American History clue with $1,400 while the ladies each have $600. His wager is $600.
On May 29, 1765 this Patriot made a speech attacking the Stamp Act in Virginia's House of Burgesses.
"Who is Thomas Jefferson?...oops. It was Patrick Henry, dropping him to $800. But by the time we reach the first break, he's added two grand to that. Marianiello has $1,600 and Baumgartner has $200. The final Round 1 scores:
LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $1,600
YOU DO THE MATH!
AT THE MOVIES
SASHA & MALIA
THE NEW PUPPY
Joyner uses the High School Strategy right off the bat on You Do The Math. The first DD of the round is later found by Baumgartner under the $2,000 At the Movies spot with nine grand and the lead. He wagers a grand on this:
Jim Carrey narrates a 3D documentary about ocean life called this, also a song from "The Little Mermaid".
"What is Under the Sea?"...ten large now for him, and he also swept that category! As we end the round, Marianiello controls the other DD under the $2,000 Sasha & Malia clue with ten grand. She's $2,000 behind Baumgartner for the lead; Joyner now has $6,800. Her wager is only a Benjamin on this clue:
Like their mom, Sasha & Malia were born in this city, & they were living there when their dad was elected President.
"What is Chicago?"...she ends the round with $10,100.
ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $3,600

FJ! CATEGORY: Scientists.
He won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics primarily for his word on the Photoelectric Effect, not for Relativity.
Jacob Joyner's response was "Who is Albert Einstein?"...the definitive guess, and it's right! He risked $799 to move to $7,599. Sophia Marianiello...also nails it to add $6,300, moving her to $16,400. Zachary Baumgartner...is right also and with a $5,789 wager, wins with $17,789.
