Jeopardy!’ Jeopardy!


A recent contestant on Jeopardy!While he might not have won the trivia game show’s grand prize, his Final Jeopardy answers made an impression on home viewers. Sportscaster Mike Janela couldn’t think up the correct answer, so he instead gave his favorite baseball team a shout-out that fans cheered him for. 

‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant’s Final Answer Strike Home For Mets Fans

A contestant on a recent episode Jeopardy! didn’t win the game, but he won a ton of support after giving an incorrect answer to the Final Jeopardy question. Mike Janela from Astoria is a sportscaster who has previously won $150,000 and works closely with the Mets. The $100,000 PyramidMichael Strahan hosted the show and took on his most recent challenge through the fan-favorite trivia contest. 

Janela was stumped when it came to answering the Final Jeopardy questions. Janela was unable to find the correct answer. “Patented in 1955, it did not go over well in the high-end fashion world but the then-new aerospace industry found it very useful,”was supposed to be “What is velcro?” 

This clever way to lose weight with grace

Janela was uncertain so rather that giving an answer or leaving it blank, he wrote. “What is I’m going to lose but the Mets will win it all this year?” Hey, if you already know you’re going to lose, why not go out giving your favorite sports team a shout-out? Viewers at home seemed to agree, and the responses to Janela’s cheeky answer were glowing. 

Twitter Fans Approved

Janela was able to count on the support of her fans back in Australia, something not all contestants are able to say. Jeopardy! fans are notorious for their criticisms of contestants, whether that’s when they underperform or when their voice is just a bit too loud for their liking. Happily, it would seem that Janela found himself in the fans’ good graces in addition to having a wonderful time on the show. 

Janela Speaks About His Experience

Janela was such a good sport (pun intended) that we’d be happy to see him try his hand at the show again at some point in the future. He might not have been a champion this time around, but he’ll linger fondly in the hearts and minds of Jeopardy! Fans have admired his positive attitude in the face of loss for a long time.
