An unfortunate mix up cost a Jeopardy! contestant $1,200 on Thursday when she couldn’t tell the difference between Jack White and Eminem.
On Thursday’s episode of the game show, host Alex Trebek showed contestants a prominent photo of Jack White and gave a clue about him building a record pressing plant, yet one contestant still confused him with Eminem.
Trebek said the clue, “A recent vinyl resurgence has been aided by this musician, who built a pressing plant in his Detroit hometown.” The photo featured White donning a goatee and pencil thin mustache.
Sadly, even with the “Lazaretto” singer’s vampiric face staring right at her, contestant Julie signaled in and incorrectly guessed Eminem. Watch the hilarious clip below.
To be fair, both White and Em are musicians from Detroit, so if you didn’t know anything about Third Man Records this theoretically wouldn’t be the worst guess in the world. SMH.
