Jeopardy Kids Week

#1QuickDrawJonesPosted 7/29/2013 4:29:10 PM
I was watching Jeopardy when the question was a picture of pikachu followed by a description. I was so estatic until a little girl answered, "Who is Pokemon?"

This was probably the first time I yelled at the TV. I just needed to vent...

...I'm not sure you understand how Jeopardy works... >.>

Unless the hint/answer/"question" was specifically supposed to be Pikachu, not Pokemon in general.

Which would be why he vented.
The answer would be "What is Pikachu?"
CORRECT!
"Video games for $1200"
THE DAILY DOUBLE!

The answer was supposed to be Pikachu. The sad thing is, she corrected her answer to Pikachu and they didn't accept it. The dude who answered didn't sound like he knew it. He just copied her second answer.

Okay, that's what I figured.

And yeah, that kind of sucks that she corrected it and didn't get credit, but not surprising. They only take your first answer, even if you correct yourself midway...
