Sayreville Teen Risked it All on Jeopardy
Yesterday, I told you that Sayreville, NJ teen Emily LaMonica was competing in Jeopardy's Teen Tournament. She ended up risking it all in the end!
Emily LaMonica fought her way through to the semi-finals on Jeopardy's Teen Tournament. Last night, it all came down to Final Jeopardy, just the way it did last week.
The question was, "Completed in 1943, this 'City Within a City' has outer walls over 900 feet long." The category was "Famous Buildings."
All three contestants answered incorrectly - including me! I said "Vatican City." The answer was "The Pentagon."
Emily risked it all! She went into Final Jeopardy with $17,200. She was left with $0.
Alec Fischthal, who also answered with "Vatican City," didn't risk it all, so therefore he won with a total of $3,999! He will move on to the finals and the chance to win $100,000.
Congratulations Emily!! You fought hard!
