Last Night's JEOPARDY! Ends with Rarely Seen 3-Way Loss!

In an extremely rare ending to the program, the final question on last night's Jeopardy! Stumped all three players, resulting in no victor on the episode.

Like the reporting you see here? "Historic Site in this city, signed into law by a pres. whose library is now there too".

All three teenagers bet everything on Dublin, Ireland, but the correct response was Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The clue refers, of course, to the 1957 desegregation of Central High School and a certain former president whose library now sits on the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock.

Claudia Corriere, one of the losing contestants was a returning "Jeopardy!" champion after winning two shows in a row on December 17 and December 18 in 2015.

The contestants bet a total of $33 600 on their answers to the difficult clue- and walked away with nothing

'We will introduce three new players. Corriere had played a good game and was tied at $13,800 with fellow contestant Mike Drummond going into the final round, with Randi Kristensen bringing up the rear with $6,000.

"If a contestant wages and loses everything: three drinks and a moment of silence" and "If Alex says, 'Sorry folks:' Finish your drink", were both on the list of drinking rules.

The last time it happened, once again in the capital cities category, was the teen tournament on February 7, 2013, NY Daily News reports.
