It was very funny. He did make a mathematical error and could have lost if the cutie pie on the left had not guessed incorrectly. Glad he won, congrats!

no the 1st guy had $14,400, so even if he bet it all, it's only 28,800 and the winner had $37,000 so knew he was guaranteed the win.

Betting 0. WOW
He at least knows his math. And has a sense of humor to boot :) Go him!!

IIRC, they add the two days to determine the winner. Nilai had $19K on Day 1. He finished with $7400 on Day 2. Had he gotten Final Jeopardy correct, he would have had $14,400 on Day 2, for a grand total of $40,400--just enough to win. Leonard made a slight error in forgetting Nilai's extra 400 bucks.

Then again, I may have this all wrong.

Either way, Leonard was super adorable. Congrats to him!

Watched this entire tournament (because my life is awesome). Was SO HAPPY to see Leonard win.

A guy I went to high school with was on Teen Jeopardy. He was in the lead the entire time and if he had bet nothing during final Jeopardy, he would have won. Of course, he bet some large amount, got it wrong and ended up losing.

Agent**It said...

Layna, correct. It was a 2 day total they were using and he would have lost . It was a great tournament.

Agent**It said...

see Layna's comment. 2 day total, not what you are looking at in this picture.

Cute nerdy boys. I love it.

ABlake, horror! You are incorrect. Not a Jeopardy watcher?

Does anyone think he looks like a teenage Michael Jackson in the still? Before the 18 operations...

@Cathy - I did the same thing. I was on not too long ago and the other person in final jeopardy with me had exactly half the amount I did. If I had wagered 0, we would have tied and both moved on to the next day. I lost my head though and wagered $5000 on a category I thought I had a good shot at. Of course, she wagered everything and got the answer right and I got it wrong and failed to move on to a third day on the show.

It still burns me that I messed that up, but I also had an amazing time on the show. It was the experience of a lifetime.

I watched this tournament. It was awesome. He did a great job and that fro needs it's own zip code. Lol!

GatorGirl said...

He was awesome and I laughed my ass off when I saw his answer...the kid to the left of him had VOICE IMMODULATION ISSUES

Agent**It said...

mngoddess, I am ashamed to say that I was rooting for him for that very reason. Shallow, I know.

That was very funny, but my favorite part is that he might help bring the afro back. I never understood what happened to that look. Even white guys used to wear it. That is why I thought this was a Jeopardy from the 1970's at first. He does indeed look like one of the early Jacksons.

He look like Michael Jackson lmfao

dragon said...

He does look like a Young Michael. Good answer lol
