Another ‘Jeopardy’ Contestant Gets Ripped Off [VIDEO]
What is it with 'Jeopardy' and 'Wheel of Fortune' lately? Just a couple of weeks after 'Wheel' watchers were outraged when a player was seemingly cheated out of an opportunity to win a $1 million prize, a 'Jeopardy' contestant's accent may have cost him $1,600. Fidelito Cortes seems to say, "Elaine," when asked to name the Julia Louis-Dreyfus character on 'Seinfeld'.
"It's 'Elaine,' not 'Elaine,' Fidelito. That's why the judges ruled against you," host Alex Trebek explained. Uh, What??!?
Cortes went on to win, but in our opinion the judges' error cost him $1,600. Take a look.
