3. the contestants have 30 seconds to write down their response. At the end of thirty seconds, their pens automatically shut off so they cannot squeeze in extra words.
4. There are 30 monitors, six across and five down. Before the round begins, Alex reveals the six categories across the top of the board. Then a dollar amount appears on each of the 30 monitors.
5. Clue Crew
6. Yes. It rarely happens, but a contestant can win with only $1.
7. Five
8. 28th
9. "What's the Question?". Quite frankly, the title was not very exciting. It was during a meeting with daytime executives of the television network that the game's creator came up with the idea of "Jeopardy!"
10. Pat Sajak, of "Wheel of Fortune" fame, hosted "Jeopardy!" once. He and Alex switched places on April Fool's Day 1996.
