Jeopardy contestant offers hilariously wrong answer
Unfortunately for one competitor on Monday night’s episode, the category “3+3” (meaning the correct response should be two words, each consisting of three letters) proved to be a stumper.
The player in question, Kevin, had buzzed in after his fellow competitor Jamie opted for the $200 answer, and host Alex Trebek read out the words, “A Hired Killer.” Kevin’s guess, after some thought, was, “Hot gun.”

Luckily, even though Kevin had given the wrong answer — which he also hadn’t framed in the form of a question — there was someone who knew the correct one, as it didn’t take long for Jamie to buzz in and ask, “What is a hit man?”
Hopefully Ellen DeGeneres will also be able to help this Kevin make up for his -$200 gamble. You can watch the hilarious gaffe above.
