‘Jeopardy!’ fans slam contestants for missing clue about Taylor Swift


“Jeopardy!” fans didn’t hold back in slamming the long-lasting game show over its latest controversy.

Viewers are calling out this system’s contestants over their lack of popular culture knowledge after they missed a clue about world-famous, Grammy-winning singer Taylor Swift during Wednesday’s episode.

Because the episode reached the halfway mark, returning champ Matt Mierswa, who hails from Latest Jersey, asked for a clue value $400 within the “title that completes the rhyme” category, which quizzes players on their song knowledge.

Host Ken Jennings did his best trying to not belt out the famous tune, and as a substitute, he hinted, “And I’m identical to oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh, it’s essential to just stop, like can you simply not, step on my gown?”

However the clue clearly fell on deaf ears, as Mierswa stood with a blank expression on his face.

Viewers became more frustrated after the opposite contestants didn’t know the reply either.

After saying Mierswa time was up, Jennings told the players, “I actually wish this was Johnny [Gilbert] reading these. That is You Have to Calm Down by Taylor Swift.”

Fans of the 11-time Grammy Award-winning singer were understandably upset in nobody having the ability to name the song.

Viewers rushed to Twitter to slam the contestants, with one tweeting, ” Everyone who makes it on to #Jeopardy clearly has a crown in my book, but I cannot calm down when there’s a triple stumper Taylor Swift clue.”

“Taylor goes unanswered at the highest of the board! I feel you possibly can throw around “You Have to Calm Down” in a whole lot of alternative ways regarding #Jeopardy,” one other wrote.

“Not one of the jeopardy contestants got the Taylor Swift clue shut the entire show down,” a 3rd fumed.


Despite the hiccup, Mierswa still managed to are available in first place with $26,644 value of winnings during Wednesday’s episode.

It comes as fans of the long-running trivia show also went wild over Jennings’ crude joke on air in the course of the July 18 episode.
