Multiple ways for the champ to lose?

I’ve been watching Scrabble lately, and it made me think about this topic.  The champion on Scrabble (at least in the last format) could lose either the crossword game or the Scrabble Sprint round and leave the show.  Are there other shows where the champ can be defeated more than one way?  I couldn’t think of any but there must be more than one.  I guess you could make the case for 3 way $0 ties on Jeopardy! but that wasn’t exactly the thought I had in mind.

The format of "Password" was tinkered with in 1975 so that the civilian champion would join three other players on stage as the celebrities gave clues to very simple passwords. The civilians would buzz in to guess. Two correct guesses, later three, would allow the player to play classic Password. The current champion could be eliminated from play here or lose playing the classic game. The best thing about this version of the game was its theme, IMHO.

I thought of Bicentennial Password, but Lange Lifetime had two ways to not come back tomorrow.

Joe Mello:
Master Minds/Best Ever Trivia Show has a bit of that, too.

I think the loser of the classic Password game was brought back to the qualifying round table in the next match.
