"JEOPARDY!" SLAMMED OVER "SEINFELD" SNAFU
Just a few weeks after Alex Trebek came across two shades meaner than Darth Vader for dashing a young person's dreams over a minor mistake on "Jeopardy!" it's happened again. Fortunately, once again, it didn't affect the show's final results. The latest incident went down on Tuesday night's show and came complete with a "Seinfeld" tie-in. Contestant Rich Hansen selected the category "Name That TV Role." "'Seinfeld': Julia Louis-Dreyfus," Trebek replied. That's when contestant Fidelito Cortes, who was in the lead with $5,200, answered "Elaine," — but, according to Trebek, the contestant pronounced the name incorrectly. "Benes," Hansen chimed in, naming the character's surname. At first, Hansen was told that he had it wrong, too, but the judges almost immediately reversed their decision. "Oh, we'll accept that," Trebek said. "It was EE-laine, not UH-laine, Fidelito," Trebek explained to Cortes. "That's why the judges ruled against you on that one." Fortunately, it ended up not mattering; Cortes, who's a published poet, won the game, collecting $25,000 and adding to his two-day tally of $45,000-plus.
