“Jeopardy!” fans have expressed their frustration on Twitter regarding contestants’ inability to answer what they consider to be easy questions on the show. Fans flooded the social media platform on Wednesday to vent their dissatisfaction with several contestants missing basic questions throughout each round. One Twitter user commented on the caliber of the contestants, stating that the questions were quite simple, yet no one was able to answer them correctly. Another user mentioned that host Ken Jennings appeared annoyed with contestants getting easy questions wrong. This frustration began earlier in the week when a user tweeted that the clues on Monday night’s episode of the show were getting easier. The viewer expressed surprise at the simplicity of the Final Jeopardy clue, which resulted in two out of three contestants failing to answer correctly due to misreading or misunderstanding the clue. The clue read, “At the 1865 Paris art salon, the elder of these two men said ‘If the younger were successful, it would be because his name sounds like mine.’” Only one contestant correctly guessed “Who are (Édouard) Manet and (Claude) Monet?” with the others providing only one name. Another Twitter user criticized the wording of the final question, suggesting it caused confusion among many viewers about whether it was asking for one name or two. A survey conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies on July 6 revealed that 51% of the 1,500 respondents believed the difficulty of “Jeopardy!” questions remained the same compared to a few years ago. Some fans have accused Ken Jennings of misleading a contestant into making a large bet on Monday’s episode. Nevertheless, Jennings has received praise as the host of the show, with viewers expressing their preference for him to become the permanent host rather than Mayim Bialik, who co-hosted before stepping down due to the writers strike. The show’s executive producer, Michael Davies, has praised both Bialik and Jennings, stating that they are talented individuals who respect and support the show. Prior to their tenure, the iconic game show was hosted by Alex Trebek, who passed away in November 2020 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
