The long-running game show Jeopardy has given heavy metal some nods in recent months. The show has thrown in some metal questions, with tributes to Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Five Finger Death Punch, Rage Against the Machine and even Slayer, featured on the show.
But, there is one thing that Jeopardy will not be featuring, and that's satanism. Or any other joke wagers.
Ken Jennings, who has the record for highest earnings on the show, at $2.5 million, would make a habit of always betting $69 on Final Jeopardy, but he revealed to a fan that that is no longer allowed:
this is officially forbidden on Jeopardy now, as of last year.
not even joking.

More troubling for us metalheads, is the revelation that $666 is also banned, as are three numbers assosiated with nazi propaganda, $14, $88, and $1488.
Well, I was going to go on Jeopardy and always bet $666, but now that I can't, what's the point?!
