The hit game show ‘Jeopardy!’ has seen its share of genius minds over the years. It has also had its share of blooper-worthy moments with answers so wrong even Alex Trebek couldn’t believe them.


This clip countdown of the 10 really incorrect answers starts with a contestant answering a hockey question by naming ‘Magic Johnson,’ who happens to be a famous basketball player!

Another clip shows famous basketball star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar guessing the missing movie-rating letter from Alex’s list. Kareem guesses the missing movie rating is ‘X,’ and Alex reminds him that ‘Jeopardy!’ is a family show! The audience cracks up!

The bloopers continue as Alex is looking for the answer, ‘What is a love triangle?’ Instead, he gets the embarrassing response, ‘What is a threesome?’ The audience is shocked and amused.

One question was about a song title, a hymn in both the Jewish and Christian faiths, and a Broadway musical title. A final jeopardy contestant answered, ‘Kinky Boots!’ The audience laughed, and Alex even commented ironically, ‘Whenever people go to church or temple, they sing Kinky Boots!’
