Ken Jennings Falls Out Of Favor With Jeopardy! Followers Over Harsh Ruling

Throughout a current episode of “Jeopardy!,” Ken Jennings requested contestants to call the place Jesus traveled to after having the Final Supper along with his disciples. Although two of the contestants had the fitting concept, the eventual end result was decided by how they pronounced it. The primary contestant, Kevin, pronounced Gethsemane as “Gethsem-a-dee?” with a tough “g” whereas the second contestant, Tamara, pronounced Gethsemane with a smooth “g.” Nonetheless, Jennings dominated Tamara’s reply right, noting that solely the “n” within the phrase wanted to be pronounced appropriately. 

This ruling, nonetheless, didn’t please followers who swiftly took to Twitter to state that Tamara’s pronunciation was technically flawed. “I believed the contestant who answered The “Backyard of Gethsemane” was robbed of his factors tonight? What did he say flawed? The contestant who bought factors for that query, did not even pronounce it proper,” one fan tweeted. “Except I misunderstand #Jeopardy guidelines, the judges shouldn’t have accepted Tamara’s “Bible” reply of Jess-seh-muh-nee,” a priest wrote whereas one other person accused Jennings himself of not understanding the fitting pronunciation.

The current backlash comes only some days after followers referred to as Jennings out for one more case of mispronunciation. Through the March 20 episode, professor Melissa Klapper was awarded factors for the fitting reply regardless of announcing Ewan McGregor as “Ewan Gregor”. “@Jeopardy tonight’s winner should not have received. She answered Ewan Gregor — not Ewan McGregor. That man bought screwed,” a fan commented on the time.
