From the clues, contestant Matt, who won the episode with $23K total, chose one for $2000. It read, “When this show ended on April 10, 2022, one of the 2 female leads was dead. Which? Well, the show didn’t live up to its title.”

Matt chimed in with the correct answer and said, “What is ‘Killing Eve.’”

With a wide grin on his face, host Ken Jennings replied, “That is correct, and we have spoiled the ending of Killing Eve for those who haven’t seen it.”
