All Three ‘Jeopardy’ Contestants Fail To Answer Extremely Easy Question About Tom Hanks

The Question Worth $200 Asked Contestants To Name The Actor As He Appeared On Screen

November 20, 2019

Just about everyone in the world knows who Tom Hanks is, as the actor has become one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. That’s why when Hanks was the answer to a recent ‘Jeopardy’ question; fans assumed it would be an easy one for the contestants. However many were shocked when all three contestants couldn’t figure out the very simple response, “who is Tom Hanks?”

With Tom Hanks starring in the upcoming ‘A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood,’ there is almost no excuse for not recognizing the actor. However, on a recent episode of ‘Jeopardy’ host Alex Trebek gave contestants the answer “In ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,’ beloved children's show host Mr. Rogers is played by this beloved actor.” While many viewers easily answered the question worth $200 contestants Kevin Jones, Beverly Randez, and Andrew Thomson were all unable to answer.

It seemed all three contestants were duped by the question, as none buzzed in, although Randez appeared to make an attempt before it was deemed too late. Many viewers were shocked that these contestants were unable to answer the simple question, but one ‘Jeopardy’ fan blog claimed “that the lights on the signaling system malfunctioned,” causing the no answer. Still, fans couldn’t believe no one got the answer, as most couldn’t help but scream “Tom Hanks” when the actor appeared on screen.
