About Jeopardy!

“Jeopardy!” is a classic game show — with a twist. The answers are given first, and the contestants supply the questions. Three contestants, including the previous show’s champion, compete in six categories and in three rounds (with each round’s “answers” being worth more prize money). In the third round, “Final Jeopardy,” the contestants can name their own jackpot — as long as it’s within the amount of money they’ve already earned. If a player finishes the second round with zero dollars, they are eliminated from “Final Jeopardy.”

    If that Canadian Ham would just shut up and only answer the questions or ask for a clue, she would be less of a pain in the neck.
