Winning by default for $1,000, Alex?
On Thursday, a contestant on the popular quiz show "Jeopardy" advanced to the show's final round by herself—because her two competitors had sunk into the red and were disqualified.
The Blaze reported that after two of the three contestants wound up losing all their money, Kristin Sausville advanced to the final round and won the game, even though she failed to answer the final question correctly.
Host Alex Trebek summed up the awkward series of events by saying it was "not one of our greatest days."
Sausville was not alone among those who have won the competition under such questionable circumstances. The Blaze, citing Uproxx, said the last time a "Jeopardy" contestant won by default was on March 16, 2011. USA Today, however, said a similar win happened in 2005, during the show's Tournament of Champions.
Having run in syndication for more than 30 years, "Jeopardy" is known for prompting its contestants to answer its tough queries in the form of questions.
Prospective competitors earn a slot on the show by answering at least 35 out of 50 questions correctly in the audition process.
