‘Celebrity Jeopardy’ Contestants Miss Easy ‘Field Of Dreams’ Question

Jeopardy is the last word feast-or-famine recreation present. It can take you from trying like a genius to an absolute babbling moron on a dime.

We acquired to see a little bit of that on a latest episode of Celebrity Jeopardy during which contestants missed a layup of a query.

The recreation featured comic and left-wing shill Patton Oswalt, professional basketball participant Candace Parker, and actress Torrey Devitto.

The reply alluded to the traditional 1989 movie Field of Dreams, however it wasn’t a baseball query or a movie query. The Jeopardy of us simply needed to listen to three easy phrases:

What Is Iowa?

Notice the rating. Patton Oswalt is a brilliant man and had bolted out to a $2,500 lead over Parker. Meanwhile, Devitto nonetheless wanted to get on the board.

That might clarify why she got here out guns-blazing and stated “What is Wisconsin?”

I can see how that mistake may very well be made, what with all of the corn hats Packers followers put on.

Other Celebrity Jeopardy Contestants Didn’t Have Any Easy Time With The Question Either

Needing to make up floor, Parker reply subsequent. She gave an inexpensive, however nonetheless mistaken reply, “What is Nebraska?”

I get how she got here to that conclusion. The Nebraska Cornhuskers for example may lead her down the Nebraska path. Plus, their followers do put on corn hats. Still, simply because a state has corn and is huge on corn, doesn’t make them the Corn State.

However, issues acquired worse for Parker once you be taught a bit about her household historical past.

Oh, come on, Candace…

Meanwhile, Patton Oswalt stood there biting his tongue. There was no sense taking a stab at it and dropping some cash if he didn’t know the reply. But who doesn’t know that Field of Dreams happened in Iowa? Even in the event that they haven’t seen the film, I really feel like most individuals decide that tidbit up by pop-cultural osmosis.

Patton Oswalt capped off an absolute floor-waxing of his two opponents in Final Jeopardy by appropriately answering “Who Is Cap’n Crunch?”

…They let the celebrities off simple, don’t they.
