Jeopardy Three Way Tie 5

I’m a big Jeopardy fan and I can’t believe they had a three way tie on Friday (I just watched the episode). I don’t understand why the champion didn’t bet one dollar more to make sure his winnings would cover the other guys’ maximum bets.

When a tie occurs on Jeopardy, the players return back the next day. It’s happened for two players a bunch of times, but never all three players. I wonder if they get to keep the money they earned that show or do they now have to win on Monday to keep it.

Also, in looking up a news article about the tie, I found this site made by an ultra obsessive fan. It lists every question from every show!

    That’s crazy! And you’re right the champion should have bet one more dollar.

    I am amazed (but I guess I shouldn’t be) at the obsession it takes to maintain that site. It shows how much I don’t know though.

    I watched yesterday’s episode and Alex Trebek said during the commercial break before Final Jeopardy, a kid in the audience asked if there had ever been a three way tie. Alex said no and the champion overhead that and intentionally forced a three way tie.

    I could never handle Jeopardy. I’m pretty good at answering the questions, but I never phrase the answer in the form of a question. I just blurt it out.

    Ben: “I watched yesterday’s episode and Alex Trebek said during the commercial break before Final Jeopardy, a kid in the audience asked if there had ever been a three way tie. Alex said no and the champion overhead that and intentionally forced a three way tie.”

    Ah, well that makes sense, if you’re into the whole making history thing.
