It’s not Tim Tebow that’s wrong, per se. (Of course.) But on the April 21st episode of JEOPARDY!, contestant Alex Hooper drew a blank in Final Jeopardy.
Hooper, in last, was presented with the category “Books About Authors,” and the answer:
Stefan Kanfer’s 2008 biography of this star is titled “Somebody”, a nod to one of his most famous lines
Who is Tim Tebow?
Now, Hooper’s from Cedar Key, Florida, and his Hometown Howdy, the short clip used to promote a contestant’s appearance on their local affiliate, shouts out North Central Florida and the Gators. I’m going to guess that the Gator love isn’t him actually thinking Tim Tebow was the correct question. (That was “Who is Marlon Brando?”)
But, really, you know you won’t get the answer right and waste your chance to write something on an invocation of the Tebow Child?
Go Gators, I guess?
(I’ll update this post with a screengrab and a video when the video eventually hits the Internet, but, well, the J! Archive, for the uninitiated, is pretty much gospel. This episode was also notable because the leader heading into Final Jeopardy sort of failed in their final wager, but, hey, I’m a dork.)
