Thursday night was possibly the worst game in the history of "Jeopardy" — which, honestly, also made it one of the most entertaining as well. Here's a clip:

Alex Trebek: "Speaking this way involves similes and metaphors."

Stephanie: "What is metaphorically?"

Trebek: "No. ... Bad news for Brad and Stephanie. This was not one of our greatest days. ... Kristin, I think you're going to win the game."

Aww. Look at that disappointment ... and all that red. Ouch. We feel for you, Stephanie. 

Even Alex Trebek, who just renewed his contract, poked a little fun during the game. 

"Kristin, I think you're going to win the game."

"This is the first time in four years that one contestant made to the final round," reported HLN

People talked to the lone survivor, Kristin Sausville, who admitted: "The vibe in the studio was shock. ... It was more nerve-wracking to be the only person on stage. ... It meant that all of the contestant coordinators, compliance people, and stage crew were standing around me." 

Sausville didn't end up winning but was able to walk away with more than $6,000 and a least a shred of her dignity intact — unlike the other two contestants.
