Twitter didn’t have an excellent feeling about three “Jeopardy!” contestants who don’t appear to know dance legend Gene Kelly.
Players Cris Pannullo, Rob Lamanna and Jeri Zulli failed to acknowledge the late “Singin’ within the Rain” star on Thursday’s episode of the quiz present.
In the “Olivia Newton-John” class, contestants had been requested to determine the person pictured subsequent to the late “Grease” star. Instead, the brainiacs grew silent.
Newton-John, who died this year of cancer, and Kelly carried out within the ’80s musical “Xanadu.” The movie bombed on the field workplace — and did not make an enduring impression on the contestants.
This information aggravated a sure viewers on Twitter, which meant Gene Kelly headlined the trending matters for one evening solely.
“Sad: on “Jeopardy!” tonight, not one of the contestants knew who Gene Kelly was when proven a photograph of him. Guess I’m getting outdated,” one sighed.
“Sometimes, I’m simply perplexed… on #Jeopardy tonight, how might all 3 of the contestants NOT know Gene Kelly, the reply to the Olivia Newton-John class? Maybe I’m simply outdated or one thing,” one other echoed.
“The contestants on Jeopardy did not know who Gene Kelly was. I am astonished! Have they never seen “Singing in the Rain”?????” another asked.
Kelly died Feb. 2, 1996, on the age of 83, after struggling strokes. “Captain America” star Chris Evans is rumored to be portraying him in a movie introduced earlier this 12 months.
Meanwhile, the newly-fronted Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings present has weathered a number of eyebrow-raising blunders in current months. In June, a contestant wrongly identified Public Enemy as Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.
A month later, one other contestant was roasted for not knowing the words to Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down.”
And on “Celebrity Jeopardy” in November, viewers known as a clue about deceased killer Brian Laundrie “tasteless” and “insensitive.”
