It hasn’t happened often, but it has happened. All three contestants not only come up with the wrong answer in Final Jeopardy but go all in, betting everything, with the end result there is no returning champ.

The Daily Mail reports this was the situation on Monday night’s show:

Long-time host Alex Trebek had asked the trio to guess the final clue in the State Capitals category on Monday’s episode.

“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 tricky question read.

You can read more about what each contestant wrote at the above link, which also reveals the correct answer. But before you do, take your best shot. See if you can answer the question correctly.

By the last time everyone on the show “wiped out” on the final question was Feb. 7, 2013. The show was an episode in a teen tournament.
