That famous line is still repeated at least once a week on millions of televisions everywhere. The Jeopardy! game show has been part of American culture since the early 1960s, and is now currently seen throughout the world. In the 1960s and 1970s it was hosted by the late great Art Fleming. Since it's reincarnation in the mid-80s, Alex Trebek has hosted the popular show. New episodes are still shown each week, and people are still earning money by knowing the answers to questions, or in Jeopardy's case, questions to answers!
For those not familiar with the game, it is basically a trivia game, where contestants need to know the answers to questions in various categories. There are six different categories that contain five questions each. The questions range from easy to difficult, and a price is placed on each question, also depending on difficulty. So the easiest question in the category is worth the least amount of money, and the most difficult question in the category is worth the most amount. If the contestant answers the question correctly, he earns that amount, but if he is incorrect, he loses that amount of money. Jeopardy's twist on this concept is that the host reads the answers, and the contestants have to phrase their answers in the form of a question. For example, the contestant picks the category 'American Presidents'. He chooses the easy one for $100, and the answer is 'He was the first president in American history.' The contestant needs to say, 'Who is George Washington?' and wins $100. If he is incorrect or does not use the question phrase, he loses $100. There are more details to the game, but those are the basic rules.
Lately the game show has become more interactive with the at-home viewers by offering chances to win money and prizes online.
