Jeopardy contestant gets Alabama question wrong, answers Auburn
One contestant on “Jeopardy!” better not ever set foot on the University of Alabama campus after his blunder Tuesday night.
One of the categories on the game show was “colleges by team names.” The first clue/answer was “Crimson Tide.” A contestant by the name of Steve answered Auburn.
Alabama residents who couldn’t name five elements on the periodic table for you could all tell you that the Crimson Tide is Alabama, not Auburn. And that was a $200 question too, not a trick, making matters for Steve even more confounding.
But, hey, being on Jeopardy isn’t as easy as it seems. I can tell you from my experience on Sports Jeopardy! last year.
