Final Jeopardy question wipes out all contestants’ prize money (VIDEO)
The popular US programme has been on the air since the 1960s and sees contestants answer questions based on a range of subjects, like history, current affairs, art, and literature.
Ken Jennings holds the record for Jeopardy! prizes with more than $3.1 million in the bank after he won 74 games in a row.
But on Monday the show’s three contestants were not so lucky, or capable, as they bet a total of $33,600 only to lose out on a question involving school segregation.
The offending clue was: “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 response was Little Rock, Arksansas.
For those interested, it referred to President Bill Clinton honoring the Little Rock Nine, a group of African-American students who were initially prevented from enrolling in an all-white high school in the city back in 1957.
