“It’s Just Not Right!”: Jeopardy fans rage at new co-host Ken Jennings after he allowed the champ to CORRECT his wrong answer, but didn’t allow another contestant to do so moments later

  • Ken Jennings, 48, asked contestant Luigi de Guzmán to “say it again” when he mispronounced a British painter after speaking on the phone.
  • De Guzmán incorrectly identified Constable as ‘Constant’ and was apparently allowed to correct the answer after prompting from Jennings.
  • Moments later, contestant Harriet Wagner didn’t receive the same award as she quickly adjusted her answer to the correct one.
  • Jennings, who started telling Wagner that his answer was wrong just as she began to correct herself, argued that he had “begun to rule” against her, so she didn’t understand.
  • Social media users railed against the ruling, saying it was “unfair” and “biased.”

Jeopardy fans revolted against co-host Ken Jennings after he allowed a champion to correct his answer, but not another contestant.

Jennings, 48, found himself in trouble following Wednesday night’s episode after allowing four-time winner Luigi de Guzman to correct his incorrect answer.

When the contestant was asked to identify a “19th century landscape by this British painter”, Constable, de Guzmán incorrectly answered: “Constant”.

Jennings seemed to jump in to help, asking him to ‘say it again’.

The Virginia attorney corrected himself and won the $1,000, bringing his total to $6,200 for the night.

Fans were furious after Jennings didn’t make the same offer to contestant Harriet Wagner moments later.

Wagner, a retired attorney, incorrectly identified Ursula LeGuin as ‘Angela,’ but quickly got herself right.

Harriet Wagner (right) did not receive the same award as she quickly adjusted her answer to the correct one. Jennings argued that she “had already begun to rule” against her and therefore she did not receive the money.

Just as he released Ursula, viewers could hear Jennings start telling him that the answer was wrong, saying that’s why he didn’t get the money.

Fans were quick to point out that Wagner had corrected his answer faster than de Guzmán and thought it unfair that he was awarded the money only after the host asked him to repeat his answer.

“Luigi picked up on that clue as well, calling and repeating that player’s second correct answer,” he told the contestant. ‘Yes, Harriet, you remembered her name was Ursula, but she had already started ruling against you when you started correcting yourself.’

Many were quick to take to social media to criticize the co-host, who shares hosting duties with actress Mayim Bialik.

‘So in #Jeopardy one contestant can correct an answer and another can’t? Come on Ken, that’s not right,” wrote Twitter user Steven Glen.

‘Gosh, Jeopardy, why not have a certain amount of time to respond? Harriet responded to her revised response from Ursula… as quickly as Luigi was allowed to correct his response from Constant to Constable a few minutes earlier,” Ann Swan wrote on Twitter.

Megan Baker agreed, commenting: ‘Yes. They didn’t give it to her, they gave it to him. Pure bias. Not well. I think if they screw up the answer it should be that. Otherwise, it’s favoritism.

Abbe Wichman wrote on the social platform: ‘@Jeopardy you gave Luigi a chance to correct himself when he messed up about Constable. [and] Constant said still when Harriet said the wrong name of LeGuin [and] she corrected herself, you didn’t let that go. make it better [and] Play fair.’

Social media users rebelled against the ruling, saying it was

Social media users railed against the ruling, saying it was “unfair” and “biased.”

Another Twitter user wrote: “Terrible Luigi daily double bet on that final clue.” Lucky he knew that because if he hadn’t, he effectively took the game out of being a fugitive. #danger.’

Another Twitter user, Mike Harrington, suggested it had to do with gender, writing: “Why did Ken Jennings allow one (male) contestant to change an incorrect answer, but ruled against another (female), despite who said the correct answer within the time limit??Tonight’s episode was an unfair leak due to the decision on the last answer in double jeopardy.

De Guzman ended his four-day streak with $115,200. If he wins another round, he will move on to the Tournament of Champions.
