Jeopardy! Round

(Alex: Now, before I ask our returning champion to make a selection, I do want to point out that we have a new category up there called SPELLING, and this category is very specific, players. You are going to be expected to spell the important word in the question, and as soon as, and if you happen to make a mistake on one letter, we will rule you wrong at that point and somebody else will get a chance.)
