Jeopardy!: Alex Trebek is having none of this embarrassing ending

Posted on

ABC

If there’s one thing Jeopardy!‘s Alex Trebek can’t stand, it’s all of the show’s contestants failing to answer a question correctly. And if there’s one thing he hates even more than that, it’s walking away from an episode of the show without a champion. Translation: He doesn’t like losing.

And during Monday’s show, there was one question that stumped all three of the contestants: “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, speaking about Bill Clinton, was Little Rock, Arkansas. Sadly, the contestants guessed Springfield, Austin, and Atlanta.

The real kicker? All three bet everything, leaving Jeopardy! without a returning champion for Tuesday’s show. And Trebek, for one, did not care for that result. On to the next three, Alex!
