‘Jeopardy!’ contestant’s hilariously wrong Mick Jagger answer sets Twitter ablaze

Jeopardy! contestant Mazin Omer had control of the board Monday night, when two-time Oscar winner Sir Maurice Micklewhite, aka Michael Caine, popped up as a clue. The only problem was, Omer didn’t know that.

Host Mayim Bialik offered the clue, “To honor his father, this star here was knighted in his birth name, Sir Maurice Micklewhite.”

“Who is Mick Jagger?” Omer replied

Omer mistook the legendary actor for legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, and the Twitter responses did not disappoint as tons and tons of viewers took to the social media site to share in their dismay. While some viewers were completely “flabbergasted” by the incorrect response, others “literally screamed out loud” in surprise.

The incorrect answer cost Omer $400 but the joy he brought to Jeopardy! fans was priceless. Plus it wasn’t all bad, as he finished second and won enough money to afford a ticket to the next Rolling Stones concert.
