Have you ever been so confident about a topic, that you would bet all your money? Well that’s what three Jeopardy contestants did Monday night in Final Jeopardy.
The Final Jeopardy topic was revealed to be “State Capitals” and each contestant decided to bet all of their money.
The result was very unusual. All three contestants got the answer wrong and lost all of their winnings.
The clue said:
“A 1957 event led to the creation of a national historic site in this city, signed into law by a president whose library is now there too.”
The correct answer was:
“What is Little Rock, Ark.?” It referred to former President Bill Clinton, whose National Library is located in the city, and the event was the 1957 desegregation of Central High School.
One contestant guessed Springfield, Illinois. The second guessed Austin, Texas, and the third guessed Atlanta.
All the contestants could do was laugh.
“This doesn’t happen very often,” the show tweeted through its official Twitter account. “With no returning champ, three new contestants will play tomorrow!”
