Jeopardy! fans were left scratching their heads when a question in the final round was deemed “poorly worded.”

James Tyler, a senior editor from Blandon, Pennsylvania went up against returning champ Alex Gordon and Dileri Johnston, a pottery teacher from New Jersey. They battled it out on Monday’s episode which was hosted by Ken Jennings.

As they headed into the final round, Tyler was clearly ahead with $14,200 and Johnston was in second place on $10,400. Gordon was much further behind on $3,000 and even though he was the only one of the contestants to get the answer right, it was not enough to make him a three-day champion.
