While the question is simple for locals, who love to skate along the world's largest naturally frozen skating rink, the two final contestants struggled.

The first answered, "What is Paris?" while the second contestant answered, "What is Amsterdam?"

This isn't the first time the show has featured Ontario trivia that left people baffled. In October, the show had the question, "This Boredom Lab is part of the psychology department at York University in this Canadian city," and one contestant answered, "What is Montreal?"

York University is getting its 15 minutes of fame on Jeopardy! The Ontario university's Boredom Lab got its very own question on the game show and stumped a contestant.

York University tweeted out a recording of the show on October 26 with a cheeky caption "Name a Toronto University that got a shoutout on Jeopardy tonight? If you didn't answer 'what is York University?' you may have missed it."
