Incorrect answers are fairly common on Jeopardy!, but viewers couldn’t get over a couple whoppers from Tuesday’s show. In fact, the opening round category “A Number Between 1 and 100” drove much of the fanbase to Twitter, where they commented on the shockingly incorrect response.
“Your standard phonograph record until the 1950s, or the age Diana Ross turned in 2022,” was the first clue to cause trouble. Contestant Jake Marvin wagered all his winnings on the Daily Double clue, but he may have lost more than money when he incorrectly guessed 90.
The 78-year-old singer has a very passionate fanbase, and they did not appreciate her being labeled a nonagenarian. During a Final Jeopardy! round in March, two contestants separately guessed that Diana Ross was 95 years old and fans were outraged. Unfortunately for Marvin, the Diana devotees have not forgotten that recent perceived transgression.This content is not available due to your privacy preferences.Update your settings here to see it.This content is not available due to your privacy preferences.Update your settings here to see it.
The addition of Ross’s age being added to the clue about 78 rpm records seemed a little clunky. Perhaps it had been meant to appease upset fans? Regardless it had the opposite effect.This content is not available due to your privacy preferences.Update your settings here to see it.
While the incorrect answer about Ross upset fans, several viewers were equally dismayed by the contestant Suzy Garver’s incorrect guess that Barack Obama was the 38th president of the United States. The incorrect answer occurred so soon after the Ross controversy that viewers were left scratching their heads.This content is not available due to your privacy preferences.Update your settings here to see it.
Marvin and Garver combined to finish the game with only $1, while Yungsheng Wang scored the impressive win, adding $25,001 to his tally, which stands at $47,801 after two days.
