J!: The next win by Linda Percy all but puts her onto the Tournament of Champions Leaderboard. Wednesday evening's spoilers:

Ryan Fox (Athens, GA)- Graduate student in Mathematics Education
Amy George (Richmond, VA!)- A geographic information systems analyst who doesn't own a car herself

First Categories:

THE FRANKS
ABBREVIATED NO. 1 HITS
TRIAL PARTICIPANTS
QUOTATIONS FROM "Bartlett's"
FACE BOOK (picture clues)
THE "SOCIAL" NETWORK

After correct responses on the first three Trial Participants clues, Linda goes for the Daily Double on the $800 spot; Ryan goofed on the middle clue. She wagers half.

In 1633, Urban VIII had this man tried; Father Firenzuola prosecuted.

"Who is Galileo?"...$1,800; she SWEEPS the subject for $2,800. She ends the first part of the round w/ six grand & deep in Lock Game Territory; Amy's $800 on the good side.

SOLE TS OF THE ROUND: Unattempted $800 Face Book clue

Post-Round 1 Scores:

Linda: $10,800
Amy: $3,800 (following an incorrect response reversal on the $1K "Social" clue just as the round ended)
Ryan: $1,400

Double Jeopardy! Slate:

LAWS
FUNERAL PLOTS
THEIR DEBUT NOVELS
COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES
LOCAL COLOR
WITH THIS "RING"

Ryan can just barely get into striking distance of the champion, because he finds a DD behind the $1,600 Colleges & Universities monitor w/ $3K compared to Linda's $11,200. He's indeed going for the doubler, which in this case would be worth six grand, on this answer:

This New England institution's the only one of the eight Ivy League schools officially called a college.

"What is Dartmouth?"...he was smiling for a good reason! W/ only two subjects remaining & a very tight game, Laws & Funeral Plots, Amy goes DD Hunting in the center of Funeral Plots...& she finds this round's other one attached to the $1,200 Laws clue! She's currently in third place w/ 11 large; Ryan has $12,800 & Linda's $4K ahead of him. Amy goes for another $4K on this Video from Jimmy Maguire:

There's a law of conservation of mass, but when I add water to the super-absorbent polymer used to make artificial snow, you can see there's NO law of conservation of this- mass divided by density.

"What is volume?"...GOT IT to hit the $15K level!

DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $3,200

Going into the Final:

Linda: $19,600
Amy: $15K
Ryan: $14,800

CORYAT SCORES:

Linda: $19,800
Amy: $12,200
Ryan: $13,400

FJ! CATEGORY: Royalty.

On the run following the siege of Oxford, he surrendered May 5, 1646 near Newark on Trent.

Ryan Fox wrote down "Who was Charles I?"...that was the King for $4K more & a final score of $18,800. Amy George...is incorrect w/ Richard III & drops to $2. To likely make it onto the ToC Standings in 10th place, Linda Percy went w/...

























































































































































...James II, making Ryan the new champ & unless some people drop out of the ToC, Linda's been ELIMINATED. But she still leaves us w/ $72,401.
