Jeopardy! contestant misses easy Iowa-themed question
Iowa fans across the country probably cringed when they saw the response to a Hawkeye-themed question on an episode of Jeopardy! last week.
During a recent episode, a question pertaining to the location of the University of Iowa’s campus made its way to the show. None of the contestants were able to provide the correct response.
“The Hawkeyes’ home is this 2-word town,” the question read.
One contestant’s response? Des Moines. The other contestants didn’t even venture a guess. Below is the clip:

Not everyone is locked in to the B1G or Iowa. That’s understandable. But that didn’t make Hawkeye fans feel any better about the response — or lack thereof — provided to the question during the episode.
Better luck next time, Jeopardy! contestants.
