On Monday’s episode of “Jeopardy!”, the three contestants fell flat after betting it all on the final question.

See if you can figure it out. Here was the “Final Jeopardy” clue, in the category “State Capitals”:

“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.”

If you were like the three contestants who bet a total of $33,600 on the wrong answer, you didn’t guess it was Little Rock, Arkansas.

The clue was referencing the 1957 desegregation of Central High School, and the president was Bill Clinton, whose National Library is in the capital.

“We have no returning champion. We will introduce three new players,” Alex Trebek said. “So, sorry folks!”

One of the losing contestants was Claudia Corriere, who was a returning champion after winning two “Jeopardy!” shows in a row on Dec. 17 and Dec. 18 in 2015.

She made her return to the game show on Monday only to lose it all the same night, after guessing on Austin, Texas.

The other two contestants, Mike Drummond and Randi Kristensen bet on Atlanta and Springfield, respectively.

Liz Fritz, a former Jeopardy champion, tweeted rules to a “Jeopardy!” drinking game that tragically predicted the downfall just an hour before the episode aired.

“If a contestant wages and loses everything: three drinks and a moment of silence” and “If Alex says, ‘Sorry folks:’ Finish your drink,” were both on the list of drinking rules.

A clean sweep elimination on Final Jeopardy hasn’t happened since a Feb. 7 teen tournament episode in 2013.

Ironically, the category was also capital cities.
