    Jeopardy Final Question -- Hilarious Answers

    Ralph and I had a good laugh at the two Diana Ross answers. Obviously, they haven't a clue who she is.

    Under the categorie "Singers," the final answer was "In 2021 at age 95, this singer achieved a Guinness World Record for the oldest person to release an album of new material."

    Oh I think they knew who she is, but just had no concept of the age. Tony was the first thing that popped into my brain but I guess under that 30 second time limit, you can easily forget things.

    My opinion is that the younger Jeopardy contestants know very little about
    pop culture. They have tremendous academic knowledge, sci-fi and
    recent music awareness, but are sometimes surprisingly clueless about
    the most popular of TV shows or movies of mid last century. I guess you
    have to have lived during that era.

    The one and only Tony Bennett was a given.

    Time for them to put down their revered cell phones and bone up a little on American social history. Nina is right. The question was a softball.
