Video - Kid loses Jeopardy after misspelling CORRECT answer CNN - Social media howls over 12-year-old's errant 't' on 'Jeopardy!' USATODAY - http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2013/08/05/jeopardy-kid-will-learn-life-lesson-suck-it-up/2618631/ Is this a commonly known rule for Jeopardy? All they have to do is find one episode where someone misspelled the final round answer and was given credit and they lose credibility on this ruling. Not sure why there has been THIS much protest about this on social media. Even if this kid had spelled it correctly or was given credit for "Emanciptation", he still would have lost by $54,000.
