We’ll take “You’re All a Bunch of Losers” for $500, Alex.

Long-running game show “Jeopardy” experienced a hat-trick of fail and was left without a champion on Monday’s episode, after all three contestants were left penniless during the Final Jeopardy round.

The question, in the “State Capitals” category, read, “A 1957 event led to the creation of a national historic site in this city, signed into law by a president whose library is now there too.”

The three contestants answered, “Springf,” “Austin” and “Atlanta” — all lovely cities (well, except for Springf), but unfortunately all incorrect answers.

And unfortunately, all of the contestants went for broke, resulting in zeroes across the board. Meaning that Tuesday’s episode will feature three new contestants.

The correct answer, for the record, was Little Rock, Arkansas, hometown of president Bill Clinton.

Watch the triple-flub go down in the video.
