For once after watching Jeopardy, we don’t feel so dumb (Hey, those clues are difficult, sometimes). The Final Jeopardy clue on Monday night’s show stumped all three contestants — leaving all three with a big fat $0!

Let’s see if you can get this one…

“A 1957 event led to the creation of a national historic site in this city, signed into law by a president whose library is now there too.”

Cue the Jeopardy music…

The correct response is — “What is Little Rock, Arkansas?”

Duh. Ha.

The clue referred to former President Bill Clinton whose National Library is located in Little Rock, and the event was the 1957 desegregation of Central High School.

“This doesn’t happen very often,” the show tweeted. “With no returning champ, three new contestants will play tomorrow!”
