1. On the television quiz show "Jeopardy!", a clue for which no correct response is given by any player. (Source: j-archive.com)

However, an incorrect response to a Daily Double clue cannot be termed a Triple Stumper, since only one player is stumped!

A Triple Stumper can include up to three incorrect responses, or else go unresponded to (i.e., have no contestant ring-in).

2. Any perplexing situation or problem.
Alex seemed bemused that so many $400 clues in the Double Jeopardy round were Triple Stumpers.

How can anybody bother listening to Chris Brown? Triple Stumper!
