    Ken Jennings, the ‘Jeopardy!” champ who holds the longest winning streak for the game show, took to Twitter Wednesday to mock President Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son. “Barron Trump saw a very long necktie on a heap of expired deli meat in a dumpster. He thought it was his dad & his little heart is breaking,” wrote Mr. Jennings shortly before 2:30 p.m. Eastern time. The tweet appears to be a reference to a report by that young Barron cried when he saw a photo of comedian Kathy Griffin holding what looked like the bloody, severed head of the nation’s...

    A “Jeopardy!” episode airing next week has taken an emotional turn after one of its contestants, Cindy Stowell, died of cancer at the age of 41 on Monday. Stowell, a science-content developer from Austin, Texas, taped the quiz show back in August, and the episode is set to premiere on Dec. 13, a “Jeopardy!” spokesperson confirmed. This marks the first posthumous airing of a contestant’s appearance. “When Cindy Stowell taped her appearance on ‘Jeopardy!,’ she had Stage IV cancer. Competing on ‘Jeopardy!’ was a lifelong dream for Cindy, and we’re glad she was able to do so,” said host Alex...
  • Final Jeopardy question wipes out all contestants’ prize money (VIDEO)

    It's rare that game shows get away with not forking out at least some cash, but that's what happened on Jeopardy! when the final clue bamboozled gambling contestants. The popular US programme has been on the air since the 1960s and sees contestants answer questions based on a range of subjects, like history, current affairs, art, and literature. But on Monday the show's three contestants were not so lucky, or capable, as they bet a total of $33,600 only to lose out on a question involving school segregation. The offending clue was: "A 1957 event led to the creation of...

    A contestant on the popular game show “Jeopardy” was asked Friday to name a flower pictured that shares a disparaging name with “people on the political left.” Her answer proved to be incorrect, but some will argue that it was the most hilarious answer ever on a show that first aired on March 30, 1964.

    Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt found something Donald Trump doesn’t win at on Thursday — knowing his terrorists. “I’m looking for the next commander-in-chief, to know who Hassan Nasrallah is, and Zawahiri, and al-Julani, and al-Baghdadi. Do you know the players without a scorecard, yet, Donald Trump?” Hewitt asked the 2016 Republican candidate, referring to the respective leaders of Hezbollah, al Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra, and the Islamic State. “No," Trump said. "You know, I’ll tell you honestly, I think by the time we get to office, they’ll all be changed. They’ll be all gone,” he said. “I knew you were...

    Michelle Obama is home from her #letgirlslearn swing through Asia and back to hawking fruits and veggies from the stainless steel area deep within the hallowed halls of the White House kitchen. Appearing for a segment on Jeopardy, the million-dollar question has now become: what happened to Michelle’s hair? Surrounded by a harvest brimming with God’s bounty and standing in front of a very large soup pot, the FLOTUS sported a hairdo that gave the optical illusion of baldheadedness. Looking like a female rendition of her husband’s hairdo in between dye jobs, Michelle seemed totally unaware of people not...

    Arthur Chu, who won nearly $400,000 on Jeopardy and has written articles slamming "privilege" and supporting feminism, has taken to social media to stand up against a woman who has been raped. Yes, you read that last sentence correctly. On the night of January 19th, a mother-of-two named Cytherea was held at gunpoint by five men and brutally raped... The suspects in the assault have since been arrested, but the trauma has been done and injuries had been sustained. So, to help Cytherea pay her medical bills, one of her co-workers set up a charity to help her. Arthur Chu...
  • Obama amnesty in jeopardy with Bush judicial appointee hearing states’ challenge

    The states challenging President Obama’s deportation amnesty have already won the first round in court after the case landed in the lap of Judge Andrew S. Hanen, a Bush appointee who issued a scorching rebuke to the Department of Homeland Security last year, accusing it of refusing to follow border security laws. It could hardly have been a worse outcome for Mr. Obama, who, in order to preserve his policy, will now have to convince a judge who is on record calling his previous, less-extensive nondeportation policies “dangerous and unconscionable.” Led by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, the 20 states...

    “What do women want?” A question for the ages, challenging humanity’s sagest philosophers. On Monday night, “Jeopardy!” attempted to answer — er, question — it with a category that left viewers and women’s rights activists flabbergasted and disappointed. The compilation of clues, titled “What Women Want,” included prompts such as, “A few moments of quiet to do this, especially the one edited by Will Shortz in The New York Times.”

    Recently I received the following email from a service member I have known for years whose career in a special-operations unit was ended when he was wounded in July 2009: “The night I was shot, I was on a rescue mission to save Bowe Bergdahl. He is a deserter. The information I was given before I went on the mission told me as much. He willingly walked off his base. More than a few service-members risked their lives trying to find/rescue him.” C. was an assault-team member in a direct-action unit when it was tasked with a mission to recover...

    Brad Rutter has a lot to be happy about. The "Jeopardy!" Battle of the Decades Tournament contestant ended up defeating Ken Jennings and Roger Craig to take home a $1 million grand prize in an episode that aired on May 16.

With this added $1 million, his new total is $4,355,102.

    Meet Arthur Chu, Jeopardy's latest and greatest star, who has used Jeopardy game theory to become nightly must-see TV. But his unorthodox methods — though correct by the numbers — have made him a polarizing figure in the Jeopardy community. Arthur first appeared on the show on Tuesday, and has gone on a nice run of three straight wins. Thus far, he's been quick and confident with his answers and has a good brain on his shoulders. But the story is firmly on how he's playing, as his game theory strategies have made for a frustrating television experience for viewers. Those...

    The long-running game show “Jeopardy” featured an entire category on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints last night. The category was popular as it was the first one chosen in the round. The “answers” in the category included missionaries, the Tabernacle, Marion Romney, Joseph Smith and Deseret Industries. Every contestant who was asked a question got it right.

    This is a critical time in American history. I think we all know that something big is happening in America. The steady stream of news out of Washington the past couple weeks is just a fresh reminder of this. We are learning more about how far our Department of Justice went in digging through the phone records of members of the press. We are also learning about how our own government targeted conservative groups by delaying or denying their tax-exempt status. And we are all waiting for the other shoe to drop on Obamacare -- the rate increases, the religious...
