Jeopardy! Season 39 started with a lot of enthusiasm as the game show welcomed a live audience back to the studio after two years. With Ken Jennings as the permanent host, the season’s first episode wasn’t devoid of some cryptic inclusions that had fans going wild. Jeopardy! fans spotted a risqué clue as the episode aired.
Jeopardy! Fans Spot A Weird Bone Clue On Daily-Double
This was a milestone moment for the host. However, it quickly faded away after a weird clue came up during the show’s Daily-Double segment. Under the category ‘Discoveries’ for a $1200 prize money, the host read the clue, “Seen here is the first known illustration of a dinosaur bone.”
“The lower part of this thighbone, it baffled scientists upon discovery in 1666,” he continued. Luigi de Guzman, the winner of the match with$42.2k prize money, buzzed in with the correct answer: “What is: The femur?”
Although the answer was correct, the clue didn’t sit well with fans as they had a bone to pick about the peculiar shape of the image shown on the screen.
Fans Think The Clue Was Not Suitable For Jeopardy!
A fan shared their TV screen with the image of the clue on Reddit. He captioned the post, “Y’alls brains go the same place mine did?”
“Me too,” replied another with cry-laughing emojis.
A third chimed in, “If you didn’t, you’re lying.”
“NSFJ!” wrote a fourth as they hilariously swung the acronym where J stands for Jeopardy!
“I wonder how many calls the local stations are gonna get from old people complaining that Jeopardy showed a giant scr*tum on TV,” joked the fifth fan.
A sixth shared their experience and said, “Yep I was watching with two girlfriends. They both turned and looked at me like ‘WTF’ hahaha.”
Another agreed that the fossil wasn’t at all family-friendly stating, “Yep, my brother and I both looked at each other and just laughed!”
Ken Jennings Welcomes The Live Audience On Season 39
Jeopardy! Season 39 premiered on September 12 as Ken was officially introduced as a dual-host with Mayim Bialik. The 48-year-old looked all excited as he was introduced as the host of Jeopardy! instead of ‘hosting’ Jeopardy!
He was also greeted by the live audience for the very first time. The newly named Alex Trebek studio was filled with roaring audience members.
The host greeted the audience with, “Welcome to the show. I am so honored to be announced as the host of Jeopardy!”
“But I am even more excited to be with you beginning a new season. With our Emmy-winning Jeopardy! staff and crew, and an audience back in the studio for the first time in two and a half years! Yes!” he continued.
