  1. On Feb 2, 2016… Why did Kevin Brown loose $2000 when it was a $1000 clue? He misprounced a word and $2000 was taken away but it was a $1000 clue

      Remember, to turn a $1,000 correct response to a $1,000 incorrect one, the show has to take $2,000 away from him, as had the judges originally ruled him incorrect, he would have had lost $1,000 instead of having gained $1,000.

      The opposite happens when the judges rule a contestant correct after originally ruling a contestant incorrect.
