CULVER CITY, Calif. — There’s nothing quite like game show contestants who don’t know an answer, yet they go for it all, anyway.
Not to be outdone,”Jeopardy!” contestant Choyon Manjrekar had such a big lead on Monday night that when he didn’t know the answer to the Final Jeopardy question, he chose to clown around a bit.
The question: “A Christian hymn and Jewish holiday hymn are both titled this, also the name of a Tony-nominated musical.”
Manjrekar’s answer: “Kinky Boots.”
“Yes indeed, whenever people go to church or to temple, they sing, ‘Kinky Boots,'” joked host Alex Trebek.
To be fair, “Kinky Boots” is indeed a Tony-award winning musical. However, it is not a Christian or Jewish hymn.
The correct answer? “Rock of Ages,” or “Ma’oz Tzur.”
Despite the joke, Manjrekar won the game (and the crowd) with his answer.
