New Jersey Teen Competing on Jeopardy
It's the 2016 Jeopardy Teen Tournament semifinals week and a Sayreville teen is competing!
Emily LaMonica made it through the finals to reach the semi's and she's competing tonight!
According to NJ.com, Emily did not answer the Final Jeopardy question correctly last week, but she won nonetheless!
The Final Jeopardy category was Natural Wonders, and though the answer was right up her alley* — "Roughly half the size of Texas, it's the largest structure made by living creatures and can even be seen from space" — she got it wrong ("What is the Great Wall of China?"). But she only risked $799 and won the game with an impressive $23,201.
I believe the answer is the Great Barrier Reef... I didn't watch her episode last week, so correct me if that is incorrect... The Teen Tournament is pretty much the only time I can actually answer some Jeopardy questions... :)
And I will be watching and cheering tonight for Emily!
