Unlike other more guess-based game shows (or word games in general), Jeopardy! relies on contestants being able to use their wealth of knowledge to give the right answers and move ahead.

Luckily, even though Kevin had given the wrong answer - which he also hadn't framed in the form of a question - there was someone who knew the correct one, as it didn't take long for Jamie to buzz in and ask, "What is a hit man?"

A contestant on " Jeopardy " on Friday managed to botch her question, lose the game and insult liberals all at the same time. The "Final Jeopardy " answer was: The flower pictured here is called this, also a disparaging term for people on the political left.

Hopefully Ellen DeGeneres will also be able to helpthis Kevin make up for his -$200 gamble. You can watch the hilarious gaffe above.
