No "Jeopardy" winner could be declared in an episode that aired Monday because all three contestants were stumped by the Final Jeopardy question involving former President Bill Clinton.

Contestants Randi Kristensen, Liz Fritz and Mike Drummond bet all their money – and lost – on the answer about state capitals, noted Us Weekly. It was the first time a "Jeopardy" episode ended with no winners since 2013.

And the Final Jeopardy question is, er, was:


"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," according to Us Weekly.



Kristensen responded with "What is Springfield?" Fritz wrote "What is Austin?" Drummond answered "What is Atlanta?" The correct question was "What is Little Rock, Arkansas?"

Little Rock Central High School was named a national historical site by Clinton in 1998 for the role the school played in the integration of public schools in the South in 1957, according to its National Parks Service biography.

The William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum, the 11th presidential library administered by the National Archives and Records Administration, was opened in Little Rock in 2004, according to the library's website.

"We have three players finishing with no money," host Alex Trebek said after watching the players lose a total of $33,000, per Us. Weekly. "We have no returning champion. We will introduce three new players. So, sorry folks!"

Jeopardy acknowledged the rarity of having no winners in a Twitter post while others found humor in the usual game show situation.
