    15 "Jeopardy" Tweets That Made Me Say, "What Is Hilarious, Alex?"

    What is an absolutely hilarious collection of tweets?

    Sure, there are other game shows, but when you get right down to it, THE game show is Jeopardy — even when most of the time it has you like:


    Well, as it turns out, Jeopardy fans (and some contestants too!) on Twitter are really funny. Here are some of the funniest Jeopardy-themed tweets around:

    1. This is my favorite part of the show too:

    Fav part of watching Jeopardy is saying “I should be on Jeopardy” every time I correctly answer a $200 clue that happens to be about one of my three interests

    2. Although, full disclosure, sometimes this is the only one I get right:

    ALEX TREBEK: this is jeopardy! ME: *buzzes in* what is the name of the show

    3. Is Jeopardy about fashion? Some would say yes:

    What are you gonna wear on Jeopardy? This guy: Everything.

    4. Sometimes the contestants' handwriting can be a little wild:

    Fun fact, #Jeopardy used a potato as the writing tool in the early days of Final Jeopardy.

    5. Sometimes the CURRENT show is pretty wild too:


    6. WARNING: Anyone who listens to this will never hear the theme song the same ever again:

    it is my somber and terrible duty to make sure every jeopardy fan and human being on earth has listened to this

    7. You know what I love? The Teen Tournament! Not only because the kids are great, but because I actually know some of the answers:

    happy holidays only to emma from teen jeopardy who didn’t know how to dab

    8. This contestant remembered her time on the show fondly...well, she remembered it:

    "Hey! I was on Jeopardy! "How'd you do?" "So poorly the official show Instagram account went out of their way to point it out!"

    9. But hey — this show can humble you (especially when you make an epically wrong answer):

    I think about this guy’s answer to this jeopardy question every day

    A contestant, after being asked for a musical that shares a name with a Christian hymn & a Jewish holiday hymn, answers "What is Kinky boots"

    10. And I mean EPICALLY wrong:

    Not her answering Chaka Khan 😂 #Jeopardy

    11. Sometimes Jeopardy can even make the GOAT look like a big dummy:

    I’m pretty sure I’m the first Jeopardy player ever to answer “Charles Lindbergh” when the answer was Courtney Love.

    12. (Since we just shared a time Ken looked bad, I feel obligated to include this absolutely brutal tweet of his from this year's Tournament of Champions):

    BREAKING: I have decided to follow @James_Holzhauer on Twitter, since he’s been following me on Jeopardy all week.

    13. But before we move on, just to be clear:

    ┏┓ ┃┃╱╲ in this ┃╱╱╲╲ house ╱╱╭╮╲╲ we ▔▏┗┛▕▔ respect ╱▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔╲ all #Jeopardy contestants, even if they finish in the red ╱╱┏┳┓╭╮┏┳┓ ╲╲ ▔▏┗┻┛┃┃┗┻┛▕▔

    14. And, in the end, being on the show is pretty impressive no matter when it was or how you did, so keep sending out that link, Dill:

    Me: I've accomplished things other than my jeopardy appearance, I don't define myself based on one experience when I was 12 Hannah: *finds the episode online* Me: *sends the link in every group chat I'm in*

    15. Honestly, it's worth celebrating (but good luck topping this fantastic-looking "air date" party):

    My stepdad is on Jeopardy right now and my mom went all out for the watch party 😂 #Jeopardy #JeopardyJames

    Oh, I know this one! "What is 'No, thank YOU, Alex.'"
