This MSNBC Host Apparently Isn’t Familiar To Some Jeopardy! Contestants: ‘Who Is Rachel Maddow?’

On last night’s “Jeopardy!” a pair of TV news personalities were the the subjects in a category about Rhodes Scholars. One was ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, and the other was a certain MSNBC anchor (spoiler: Rachel Maddow), who, despite there being a picture along with the question, none of the contestants could quite figure out the identity of.

WATCH:

This is not the first time that “Jeopardy!” contestants haven’t been on top of their cable news facts. Last year a question about CNN brought about the answer “Morning Joe,” and the year before contestants were unable to identify “Good Morning America.” News Corpse notes that some contestants were unfamiliar with Fox News Channel contributor Sarah Palin’s recent book.
