What’s “stumped”? Certainly one of Taylor Swift‘s songs was lately a clue on sport present Jeopardy!, but it surely seems the hit wasn’t one any of the three contestants have been conversant in, beautiful followers of the pop famous person.
On the Wednesday (July 20) episode of the long-running sport present, one of many gamers chosen the $400 clue from the class “Title That Completes the Rhyme.” Ken Jennings, who hosted the episode, continued by studying the lyrics with out making a gift of the tune: “And I’m similar to oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh/ It’s worthwhile to simply cease/ Like are you able to simply not step on my robe?”
After 5 seconds of silence, the timer went off with no single one of many three contestants buzzing in.
“I actually want it was Johnny studying these,” former Jeopardy! champ Jennings famous, referring to Johnny Gilbert, the present’s announcer since 1984, earlier than revealing the reply. “That is ‘You Must Calm Down’ by Taylor Swift.”
Swifties have been in disbelief that nobody knew the reply, and instantly shared their shock on Twitter.
“HOW COULD NO ONE KNOW THE ANSWER!?!” one viewer wondered.
“Everybody who makes it on to #Jeopardy clearly has a crown in my ebook, however I can’t relax when there’s a triple stumper Taylor Swift clue,” wrote a user named Erin McInerney.
Some viewers have been proud that they knew one thing the three gamers didn’t. “Having a bit energy journey bc I knew the reply to a Jeopardy query was Taylor Swift & not one of the contestants received it,” boasted Twitter user @RamenDavis.
“You Must Calm Down” was the second single off Swift’s 2019 album Lover. The hit peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Scorching 100 in June 2019, and spent a complete of 21 weeks on the all-genre chart. (Lover reached the summit of the Billboard 200, and spent a powerful 151 weeks on the chart.)
