Student Loses ‘Jeopardy! Teen Tournament’ by a Single Dollar (Watch)

Oh, the agony of defeat!

Alec Fischthal fell just one dollar short of winning the $100,000 “Jeopardy! Teen Tournament” prize on Tuesday night.

Fischthal and the two other finalists — Michael Borecki and Sharath Narayan — all answered the Final Jeopardy! question about Early America correctly. Their totals were added to the previous day’s sum to determine the final winner.

Despite wagering nearly all his money, Borecki finished in third because he had zero earnings from the previous day.

Narayan played it safe, wagering $901. Fischthal went for broke, betting his entire $11,600. He doubled his money to $23,200 for a combined total of $39,700.

Sadly, that was just one buck short of Narayan’s two-day total of $39,701. With his safe but smart bet, the high school sophomore took home the top prize.

Watch the agonizing moment that Fischtal learns he lost by the narrowest of margins in the clip above or click here. The high school junior did everything he could; he

Teen Contestant Drops Hilarious Meme Reference During Final Jeopardy

Please meet your new Jeopardy/life hero. Her name is Sabrina, and she was recently a contestant on Teen Jeopardy. Although she didn't take home a winning stack of cash, she still managed to finish off the game in an epic fashion. When it came down to the Final Jeopardy round, Sabrina found herself stumped for an answer. Under the category of Natural Wonders, the contestants were asked, "Roughly half the size of Texas, it's the largest structure made by living creatures and can even be seen from space." Instead of feeling defeated, as many contestants probably do, Sabrina made the best of her incorrect answer. When it came around to her turn, Alex Trebek read her question, "What are...Those?"

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Tom Hanks Gives America The Pep Talk It Needs In Halloween-ish Episode

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Tom Hanks Gives America The Pep Talk It Needs In Halloween-ish Episode
For the first time this season, “Saturday Night Live” gave audiences the gift of a host who knew exactly what he was doing. They also eased back on the Trump shtick; apart from a lengthy (and incredible) cold open and a few punchlines on Weekend Update, “SNL” sat back, relaxed and let viewers enjoy nine-time host Tom Hanks.

With a host like Hanks and musical guest Lady Gaga, Week 4 was destined to be strong. There were several hits, just a few misses, and, mercifully, no misplaced singing. But did Hanks reinvigorate the formula in the way this election season needs? Let’s take a look.

Tom Hanks on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See
Tom Hanks returned for his ninth time hosting Saturday Night Live this week. This marked the end of an epic run of four consecutive episodes for the show to kick off the season. While not unprecedented, four in a row is definitely unusual. Last week showed signs of fatigue for the show, so could it rally for this installment?

In short, yes: While not completely strong top-to-bottom, this was more in line with the first two solid episodes of the season rather than last week's slightly off aberration. (Tonight's David

Hanks, who has previously hosted SNL eight times, returned to Studio 8H in support of new film Inferno. And though he hasn’t hosted since May 2006, the versatile actor was at the top of his game, thanks in part to an episode where just about every cast member and every sketch was firing on all cylinders.

7 Weirdest, Most Outrageous TV Game Show Moments (Videos)
Sometimes, TV game show moments head into the bizarre. Bob Barker Is a True Professional, Exhibit A: The host dealt with a dopey “Price Is Right” contestant who prematurely reveals the correct answer. It’s rare but not unheard of for “Jeopardy!” episodes to end with all three contestanta going all in on Final Jeopardy and losing. Here’s the most recent example of such a humiliating triple defeat from January 2016. You could always count on “Match Game” for some wild times, and one of the highlights was when host Gene Rayburn attacked the cameraman for not allowing Charles Nelson Reilly to prep.

What Did You Miss? Lin-Manuel Miranda Rapping Hamilton Clues on Jeopardy
How does an intelligent, eloquent, decorated Heights vet end up asking questions with Trebek from the Richard Rodgers set? All it takes is one Jeopardy category about Alexander Hamilton, which naturally called for Lin-Manuel Miranda to show up and provide some video clues about the Founding Father. (They were recorded in the 30 seconds of free time he has every day.) Unfortunately, none of these were Final Jeopardy, which meant there was no opportunity for anyone to wager "17—, 17—, 17—, $1789."

Is 'pansy' the funniest Final Jeopardy! response of all time?

  • Hitfix
Sometimes game show contestants are the only truly funny people on television. Case in point: Becky Sullivan, a contestant on an episode of "Jeopardy!", couldn't think of the right answer to a Final Jeopardy! clue about flowers. Her response might be the funniest answer in the show's history. The clue: "The flower pictured here is called this, also a disparaging term for people on the political left." Sullivan's guess: "What is a pansy?" Nope. But worthy of some Hall Of Fame recognition, alongside that Turd Ferguson reference a couple months ago and a certain reference to "Kinky Boots" before that.   Here are ten other excellent Final Jeopardy! responses that at least deserved some pity money.

Jeopardy! Contestant Unintentionally Burns Liberals Everywhere With Hilarious Incorrect Response

Instead of leaving her board blank when she didn't know the correct response for the Final Jeopardy round, contestant Becky Sullivan wrote down her best, most logical response…and it just so happened to also be quite offensive for the political left. The final question asked the remaining two contestants to identify the name of a flower by its picture and by its name, which is also "a disparaging term for people on the political left." Sullivan was not entirely sure about her response, but decided to take an educated guess and wrote down "pansy." "I think you may have found a way to insult liberals in this country," host Alex Trebek said after revealing her response, which...
