It was actually French Stewart who wagered $texas. Burt Reynolds wrote nothing down.
"And you wagered Texas with a dollar sign. I'm speechless."
Lots of money.
In reference to a Saturday Night Live Celebrity Jeopardy sketch where Burt Reynolds wagers $texas on final jeopardy
"Trebek : "Write a number, any number will do, maybe a one, or a two, or maybe a three"
FINAL JEOPARDY MUSIC
Trebek: "OK, French Stewart, grinning like an idiot, you seem pretty sure of yourself. And your answer is THREEVE. A combination of Three and Five. Simply Stunning. And your wager.... TEXAS with a dollar sign."
If I had three wishes, I would wish for health, and happiness, and $texas.
