Why do jeopardy contestants mispronouce their answers when they are correct?

How do Jeopardy contestants know the answers?

Jeopardy! contestants have to rely on their own knowledge and any clues in the question to figure out the answers. There are some strategies. One contestant called ahead to find out when his episode would be airing, because shows on or around holidays usually have a themed category.

Why do the contestants on Jeopardy say what is then answer the question?

The Jeopardy show has a strange format where they give you a category and tell you the answer or clue within that category and the contestant is supposed to come up with what the question would have been. It's all very confusing sometimes because we know the question the contestants asks is the answer even if they choose to call it a question on the show. On the double Jeopardy round if the Contestant does not phase it in the form of a question in is counted as wrong and they lose the points and another contestant gets to answer (wait shouldn't that be another get to say the question) Anyway that is why.

Do contestants on jeopardy know the question before the show airs?

Sure the show was taped long before they air the program. You might mean "Did they know in advance that the question was going to be asked?" That's like asking if the show is a total fraud that passes out a list of questions and tells the contestants to study them. In truth, for the contestants, it's sort of like The Tonight Show's 'sidewalk all-stars'. The sketch is funny because most of us know the answer to the question Jay is asking. Many of the answers to the Jeopardy questions are known by all three contestants, but only one wins a chance to answer by ringing in first. Remember, they are on the show because they pride themselves on being able to answer trivia questions. They would not like to have the questions passed out ahead of time to everyone because they feel they would lose their advantage. So, in a sense, they know the answer to the question before the team of writers for Jeopardy even made up the question. With travel and lodging as high as it is some of the 3rd place finishers lose money for the chance to be on the show.

There are no unused questions on Jeopardy. There are questions that the contestants could not answer because they tried and failed and others that they didn't even try. Both types of questions are called a triple stumper and the answers are available at the Jeopardy Archive for that date (see related link) Questions that were never presented because they ran out of time are unknown and we would never know if they are saved and to used in a different puzzle, but it seems unlikely. When you see the Team Jacob Category for January 18 2011 The first 3 Questions were Triple Stumpers and the last two were not called upon.

Is cash cab fake?

Are the Contestants Actually Random? What we know is that some contestants are indeed random, and picked up off the streets of New York. Not all of these contestants make it on the show, even if they play a complete game, however. Other contestants are indeed screened and/or recruited. Is the Cash that Bailey Hands Out Real? Nope! The money that the contestants get as they exit the cab, which is meant to represent their winnings, isn't real cash at all. If they make it on the edited program and win, they will be mailed a check. The contestants are in fact pre-screened. Contestants act surprised when they are told, "Your in the CASH CAB!". They already know that they are on the show before they enter the cab. The trick is to make it on the program. Winners who do not make it on the program are not paid. It`s fake. http://gameshows.about.com/od/cashcab/a/cash_cab_real.htm ~ It is real, my sister and her friends were on it. Didn't know they were going to be on cash cab however they knew they were gonna be on something just not cash cab.
