‘Jeopardy’ Player Bombs Cam Clue

Comments

Apparently Cam Newton didn’t get enough publicity last season, at least not enough for one recent Jeopardy contestant who got this clue: “In 2010 Cam Newton became this university’s third Heisman Trophy winner.”

Instead of guessing Auburn, Christopher guessed Ohio State and looked as if he had never heard of Newton, the No. 1 overall pick in April’s NFL draft.

The Buckeyes, to be fair, weren’t a terrible guess. There was a massive scandal in Columbus around QB Terrelle Pryor, similar to the way controversy has swirled around Newton for months.

But to make matters worse, the question was a “Daily Double,” meaning Christopher lost $1,000. And even Alex Trebek couldn’t believe he got it wrong.
