Canadians everywhere are cringing hard at this video of Jeopardy contestants failing miserably at the "Canadian Cities" category. The contestants waited until the very end of the show to tackle the category and couldn't even come close to getting a single answer right. Apparently, Jeopardy contestants are no different than the rest of America - completely clueless about anything to do with Canada.
The whole thing is hard to watch, but there are a few moments that are especially cringe-worthy. One of the clues was, "The swan is the symbol of this Ontario city; each year, white and black swans are released into the avon river." The middle contestant, Randy, answered with Edmonton. EDMONTON. Sorry Randy, but no.
Randy's next answer was just as bad. The clue was, "This Alberta resort was the first municipality to be incorporated within a Canadian national park." Randy's answer was Whistler, which bumped his score down to $-1,800.
For the next clue, all three contestants decided it was safer to stay silent.
The last clue in the category was, "Residents of this Saskatchewan city are called Moose Javians." Randy's answer was Winnipeg. But, props to Randy for being brave enough to attempt an answer, even though it was the furthest thing from being right.
To make matters even worse (and more hilarious), the host of Jeopardy, Alex Trebek, is actually from Sudbury, Ontario. He looked like he was ready to burst out laughing at the end.
But, to be completely honest, some of these clues are pretty obscure. There are probably a ton of Canadians (including us) who would've struggled to get a few of the answers right. It's just funny to watch the Americans struggle. #SorryNotSorry.
