'Jeopardy!' fans call out production for glaring Final Jeopardy! gaffe

At first glance, the Final Jeopardy! Note seemed normal on Wednesday's show, but as that iconic music rolled and churned the brains of eagle-eyed contestants, eagle-eyed viewers noticed the word "same" was misspelled.
The category was 19th-century literature, and the note read: "This author first thought of a parrot before selecting another bird that is 'also capable of speech'."
One fan wrote, "Someone is telling Jeopardy clue writers not to lean on the L key next time." While another tweeted, "Feeling so smart tonight for correcting the spelling mistake in myself Final Jeopardy.”

Despite the LLL error, one contestant turned that extra L into a capital W. Jeff Weinstock correctly answered, "Who is Edgar Allan Poe?" He bet $4,202 and ended up with the maximum of $11,202.
As for the person who made the typo, former champion Megan Wachspress had a pretty good idea on how to punish her.
"What's a dunce cap?" she asked.
"Right," hostess Mayim Bialik replied.
