"Jeopardy!" 2/1

Olivia Hummer (Covina, CA)- Sr.
William Crouch (Warner Robins, GA)- Sophomore
Arjun Byju (Sarasota, FL)- A Sr. at Pine View School who's appeared on "Made"

Fri.'s Topic Feast Starts as Follows:
WORDS CONTAINING SILENT LETTERS
MYTHOLOGY
IT'S ELEMENTAL!
DISNEY MOVIES BY VILLAIN
NOT TO BE CONFUSED
HOMECOMING

William's the early player in first place at recess w/ $2,800; Arjun has half that score & Olivia's close behind too w/ $1,200. Exactly three clues later in Homecoming, Olivia snatches the DD away from the boys w/ $1,600; William just cracked $3K. She makes a $600 (face value) wager.

Before he had to sell it, this author enjoyed coming home to his Chateau de Monte-Cristo outside of Paris.

She doesn't know it was Alexandre Dumas. William finishes the rd. still slightly in front at $4,200; he leads Arjun by $800 & Olivia by two grand.

ATTEMPTED LT: $2K
UNATTEMPTED LT: $2,200
TOTAL LT: $4,200

Waiting To Be Chosen in DJ!:
AMERICAN NOVELISTS
TV SHOW SUM-UP
"Y" IS THE ONLY VOWEL
WORLD RIVERS
THE 113TH CONGRESS
BAD LUCK?

Starting in "Y", William's right on the opener but Olivia being right on the $800 clue means her second DD answer of the game comes from its $1,200 location. Of her $3K, Olivia wagers a 1/3 of it.

An ancient traditional story of a people.

"What is a myth?"...qualifies & is right to turn her three big ones into four. The final DD of this Fri. show is saved to the very end to close out World Rivers & it belongs to William at $10,600; Arjun's at $7,400 & Olivia has a $3,800 cushion over Will. William puts $3K on the line:

This river that rises in the Black Forest flows through Germany & on into Austria.

"What is the Danube?"...he got the one!

DJ! LT (all unattempted): $9,600

FJ! TOPIC: The Planets.

To the Ancient Greeks & Romans, it was the slowest-moving planet seen from Earth.
