Doubtful bids were the talk of the town Risk!, Tuesday, as it left fans baffled. Heading to Final Jeopardy! contestant Steve Clarke received $20,000. Second place rider Ben Collier earned $10,000. Fans expected Clark to bid $0 and Collier to go all out, but none of the contestants complied.
Collier correctly answered the idea, but offered only $3,000. This was lucky for Clark, who incorrectly answered the clue and made a $1 bid. Shows that seemed inconsequential got viewers talking on Twitter.
Notably, the third-place contestant, Tahmina Malik, had $3,200 heading into the final round, but lost it all with an incorrect response. So while Collier was arguably playing second, fans didn’t understand. They didn’t even understand why Clark was only offered one dollar.
The last danger! The category was “Paris and Astronomy”. The guide reads, “Discovered in 1877, they are named after the siblings of the Greek god of love.” Collier answered correctly, “What are Phobos and Deimos?”
With his second win this week, Clark started a winning streak and racked up a total of $38,400 in winnings.
