Jeopardy! Three-way Tie

In Alex Trebek's second episode as the host of Jeopardy!, all three contestants missed the Final Jeopardy! question and the game ended in a 0-0-0 tie.

The Final Jeopardy! answer was: "Calendar date with which the 20th century began."

All three contestants bet all their money and gave the same question: "What is January 1, 1900?"

Alex: Oh, boy. What... I'm at a loss for words in a situation like this. [whistles] Hey folks, easy come, easy go. Because all of our contestants wound up with nothing, we have consolation prizes for each of them. Tomorrow on Jeopardy!, we'll be bringing in three new players to play the game...

Voices offstage: The answer!

Alex: You mean, "What is the question?" The question is "What is January 1, 1901?"

How could they all miss that? So simple and basic...
