'Jeopardy' Contestant Gets Second Chance After 'Final Jeopardy' Round Goes Awry

  'Jeopardy' Contestant Gets Second Chance After 'Final Jeopardy' Round Goes Awry One "Jeopardy" contestant is getting a second chance after a round of "Final Jeopardy" went awry. Vincent Valenzuela has been invited back to the game show and will appear in another episode that will air on July 23, the Chicago Tribune reports. A rep for the show told the Tribune that the text of the clue given to Valenzuela and the other contestants was different from the way that host Alex Trebek read the clue. Here's the clue in question: "This slang term for an environmentalist is literally true of groups that used passive resistance vs. deforestation, as in India in 1973." Also read: Alex Trebek Dogged by Negligence Lawsuit Valenzuela wrote down "tree hugger" — the correct answer, which fellow contestants Michelle Cabral and Bryan Rucker wrote down — but changed his mind at the last moment to cross out his original answer and replace it with "Carl Sagan." Valenzuela, who ended up coming in third, said that the text of the clue posted on his screen read "His slang term for an environmentalist …" "That completely changes it when you re-read it. It sounds like they're looking for a person's name and so I just grabbed a person who was big in the environment and who would have been a contemporary in the '70s, and so I came up with Carl Sagan," he told the Tribune. "It was very devastating, but they realized that a mistake had been made.
