The majority Jeopardy!Viewers tune in to watch the contestants demonstrate their knowledge of many different facts. However, lately, it seems like the game show players aren’t impressing Jeopardy! Fans often miss easy questions and make silly guesses.
‘Jeopardy!’ Contestants Can’t Figure Out How Old Diana Ross Is
Twitter went crazy over two numbers answers. The first question asked the contestants to guess musical icon Diana Ross’ age, using a 78-RPM record as a clue. The contestants were clueless and only one of them correctly predicted Ross’ age at 90.
This isn’t the first time the former Supreme’s age has been incorrectly guessed. Someone had guessed Ross’ age a few months ago. People took to Twitter quickly to laugh at their wrong guesses.

“Jake made me feel old that he didn’t know there were 78 LPs, or that Lady Diana Ross was 78,” One Twitter user laughed. “Then, he guessed the iconic Miss Ross was 90 years old.”Another author wrote “Poor Diana Ross. She always gets insulted on a Jeopardy question.”
Fans Blame Contestants for Incorrect Facts, From Obama to The Bronx
This wasn’t the only recent Jeopardy! gaff. Another contestant correctly guessed that Barack Obama was the 38th president, not the 44th.
“When the #Jeopardy contestants think Barack Obama was the 38th president and think 90 RPM records were once a thing, I’m like, ‘Hey, I should be on Jeopardy,’ conveniently ignoring the dozens of responses I got wrong,” one person joked.
Another Tweet, “Imagine trying to get on #Jeopardy for years to see someone on the show call Obama the 38th president.” The wrong answers didn’t stop there, though. The game show’s fans were also puzzled by the fact that none of the contestants could recall that the Bronx was one of five boroughs that makes up New York City.
“It’s official y’all. The Bronx is no longer a borough,”Someone laughed. “#Jeopardy has spoken!” Another fumed, “how the f*ck do 3 jeopardy contestants not come up with the correct response for the final clue in ‘which new york city borough?’ 4 were already given for the first 4 in that category, so 1 remains…do these people even watch the f*cking show? of course it was the bronx”
This is a great guess! Jeopardy! Fans are curious about the quality of the contestants. “Seems like the contestants are pretty weak lately,”One person tweeted. It appears that fans of Jeopardy!We are hopeful that the next round will be a little more sharp!
