There Was A Mormon Category On Jeopardy

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint was a category on Wednesday’s episode of Jeopardy, and everyone answered the questions right.

It’s happened. The Mormons have finally made it. They were a category on Jeopardy Wednesday.

Chris, Emily and Stuart all picked from this category before picking from travel books or celebrities’ kids’ names.

This is what they had to figure out:

1. For $200: Some of the thousands of young Mormons who travel far and wide as these are seen here.

Answer: What are missionaries?

Intellectual Reserve, Inc.

There are 74,900 Mormon missionaries serving around the world right now. They serve for 18 months to two years, pay their own way and don’t even get to pick where they go.

2. For $400: In this building, home to a church choir, a pin dropped at the pulpit can be heard at the back of the hall.

Answer: What is the Tabernacle?

The Salt Lake Tabernacle was built between 1864 and 1867. It’s sits next to the Salt Lake City Temple on Temple Square and is home to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

3. For $600: Serving as one of the 12 of these, Marion Romney got closer to the presidency of the church than his cousin Mitt did.

Answer: What are the Apostles?

Marion Romney is actually Mitt’s uncle. He was second counselor in the church’s First Presidency, so he got closer to the presidency of the church, but Mitt got closer to the presidency of America.

4. For $800: In the Sacred Grove, seen here, he had a vision of God and Jesus in 1820. In 1830, he organized the church.

Answer: Who is Joseph Smith?

Mormons refer to the event in the Sacred Grove as the First Vision. It occurred after Joseph prayed to know what church to join when he was about 14 years old.

5. And for $1,000: The logo seen here is of the church’s mega-thrift store called these Industries. The word means honey bee.

Answer: What is Deseret?

Deseret Industries is part of the church’s welfare program and was started during the Great Depression to provide employment training to community members.

All the questions were answered correctly. The Mormon Moment must have worked.
