In the first part of two-day finale of the High School Reunion tournament, the popular game show confuses viewers as it accidentally shows the first day results before the game even begins.
AceShowbiz -“Jeopardy!” might have done one of the biggest snafus in the show’s history. In the Wednesday, March 8 episode, the game show accidentally showed the results during the first part of two-day finale of the High School Reunion tournament due to an editing error.
Fans were able to see how the night ended before the game even began. As host Mayim Bialik congratulated students Justin Bolsen, Maya Wright and Jackson Jones for making it to the finals of High School Reunion Tournament, the camera cut to the three contestants with their final scores clearly shown.
At the end of the episode, the finalists did receive the cash indicated at the beginning of the episode. Jackson earned $24,000, Justin took home $13,570 while Maya received $3,370.
After catching the snafu, viewers quickly took to social media to discuss the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment. “An inexcusable production error,” one viewer tweeted. Someone added, “That’s a pretty significant screwup.”
“Wow, given that this was taped months or weeks ago, you’d think they’d actually proof-view it first before putting on air,” another fan commented. A confused viewer tweeted, “I was so confused!! I thought I missed a day and this was day two of a TWO DAY TOTAL POINT AFFAIR.” Someone similarly said, “I found that super confusing and wondered if i’d missed the first day of the finals….”
Despite the major error, the grand prize winner of the High School Reunion Tournament is still unknown. The trio are set to all be back to compete in the tournament’s final game airing March 9 and whoever gets the highest two-day total score will take home a $100,000 grand prize.
“We didn’t want to lose that sort of college energy [this season],” executive producer Michael Davies said of the tournament in a statement back in December. “We knew we had these 27 players who are all of college age who come from our existing ‘Jeopardy!’ community, so this was a great opportunity to bring them back.”
