An unusual thing happened on “Jeopardy” Thursday (March 12) — there was only one person playing in Final Jeopardy.

What happened is pretty simple (though a little unbelievable, in one case). Contestants Brad and Stephanie ended Double Jeopardy in the negative and as fans know, if you’re in the negative, you don’t get to play in the finals because you have no money to wager. Rather hilariously, Brad was only negative $200, but good ol’ Stephanie apparently just could not stop ringing in because girlfriend was negative $6800.
