Central High Student Competes in Jeopardy! Semifinals | News
It was his second appearance on Jeopardy! as a semi-finalist in the Teen Competition.
You first saw Kelton Ellis, a Central High School student on the show last week, as he advanced to the Semifinals episode that aired Thursday night.
Taped back in November, the episode ended with a clincher that gave even veteran host Alex Trebek a moment of pause.
The Daily Double question was, "It's crisscrossed by dozens of peace walls that separate its Catholic and Protestant neighborhoods."
The answer was "What is Belfast?"
All three teen competitors answered Dublin, each of them betting it all.
With no dollars on the board, there were no winners tonight. Host Alex Trebek said, that was the first time in Jeopardy! that a show ended with no money on the board.
But Kelton's family and friends still have a reason to be proud of their scholar. He earned $24 thousand in the episode that aired last week.
