It all comes down to tonight! Only three contestants remain! They’ll go into the final match with Colby having $22,200, Kristin with $400, and Kieth with $4,800. It looks like Colby’s the favorite to win… but we all saw how Leonard Cooper came from behind and shocked the world with his incredible win… I’m sort of hoping Kristin beats these boys. OR Colby wins and does 3 cartwheels and knocks over Alex… and it’s really awkward.
Colby Burnett – a high school teacher from Chicago. His facial expressions are amazing.
I picked Leonard Cooper from the beginning! On the 1st night of finals he was in 3rd place way behind the other two contenstants… but it came down to getting a daily double in the double jeopardy round… he wagered his 18,000 (which was almost ALL of what he had)… the audience gasped. At first I thought he was saying 1,800… no no it was 18 THOUSAND! Then the answer (question) was totally easy about 12 angry men being jurors. So Leonard had over 36,000 going into final jeopardy. He didnt get it right (I didn’t either, I said FDR like Nilai Sarda) but he won the tournament!! It was the most exciting come back in teen jeopardy history!!!
I was so excited last night for the first night of Jeopardy Teen Tournament finals. I ate a yellow cake cupcake with half chocolate half stawberry frosting and I was so happy. Unfortunately Leonard came in 3rd with 3,000 – way less than the other two contestants. If Leonard doesn’t win then I want Nilai, the adorable freshman.
My drive home Friday, Feb 8th 2013… this was Nemo for central New York. nbd.
GOOO LEONARD COOPER! Leonard is going to the finals in the Teen Jeopardy Tournament – and he’s my fav. I captured this photo of my tv while Leonard was telling the story of how a girl in school that sits behind him put a pink highlighter in his afro and he didnt find it until a few days later. How adorablely weird (I’ll say what the world was thinking – so does Leonard take showers and wash the fro? Or does he wear a shower cap?? – did the highlighter survive the showers and stayed lodged in his hair?)
Nicholini: Oh my sweet baby boy. He’s the greatest.
Coffee with cream only: I love a cup of coffee. MAYBE too much. Last Saturday I drank an entire pot and I was a shakey mess. I am on my 2nd cup today so far.
State Farm Insurance: I had a silly accident yesterday morning. Can I call it silly yet or is it too soon? I was dropping Nicholas off at Maria’s. I pulled in her drive way – and decided to leave the car running while I dropped him off since it was cold. WELL, I didn’t have the car in park. I got out of the car while it was still in drive and the car, with nicholas in it, drove into her house. I jumped back into the car and stopped it – but my car did some serious dent damage to her garage door… o…m…g… what do you do? what do you say? THANKFULLY I called up state farm and they acted like I was totally normal and they’re doing a wonderful job taking care of things.
Indian food: I never eat indian food… except for when someone I work with, who is from India, has a baby and invites me over to meet their baby and eat a LOT of Indian food. This happens like once a year… and it’s happening TODAY! Yum! At least I hope they’re serving Indian food. If they order a vegatarian pizza I will be so sad.
Jeopardy Teen Tournament: On a normal week night my routine includes Wheel and Jeopardy. I love the tournaments on Jeopardy. An added bonus to the teen tournament is that I get to shout out a lot more answers than I do with the regular show. Right now I want Leonard Cooper from Little Rock, AR to win. I do NOT want Barrett Block from Lexington, KY to win.
Clinton Kelly: I’m always loving Clinton Kelly. He’s totally the best.
