Happy Friday and happy Happy Hour Trivia day!

You know how Jeopardy contestants are guaranteed to win cash, even if they end the game at $0? Third place gets $1,000, second place earns $2,000 and the winner keeps their accumulated cash. Well, it wasn’t always so. In the early days of the game (way back in 1984), all contestants got to keep what they earned during game play. Maybe that worked out for some players, but producers found that it killed competition. Once players had reached the amount of money that they’d hoped to earn, they’d simply stop ringing in to avoid losing any money.  By allowing just the first place contestant to keep their money, this created much more competition and less hesitancy on the part of the players to try to give a correct response. Now you know.

And now, on with the trivia.
