mechamind:
It seems that Jeopardy! contestants, despite knowing a lot of trivia, are having trouble mapping the contiguous 48 states as of late. :P

Two weeks ago, they had a clue about "MIMAL" (Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana), and yesterday had a clue about which two 6-letter states west of the Mississippi River border each other (Oregon and Nevada). I can understand only one correct response, but these should not have been 0/3.

pardon the joke: but perhaps the next rebooted game show should be Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego (or bring back the Geography Bee like Trebek used to host)

In under 30 seconds to get it reasoned out and written? Sure. Itís a tiny sample size of three people, under pressure. My mind first went to Kansas and I had no luck trying to recalibrate. It happens.

PatrickRox80:
I got Nevada right away, but I wasnít sure about it sharing a border with Oregon until Ken said that it does.

Game Girl:
Did you see the Jeopardy episode today February 8 2023. they did a few Price is right references. The people at J bored figured out which one since he mentions a Pontiac car '2007-12-04' The player was Greg (Gregory) Snyder found episode here (http://www.golden-road.net/index.php/topic,4832.0.html) in season 36. The uniform and funny sign common makes me think he got confused with let's make a deal. he also said something after final Jeopardy Can not find it on my recording though. (I think the final market is 1230am est so I think this is safe to the only after airs rule.)
