Then again, the vast majority of people who make it on to shows like Jeopardy! are really not that knowledgeable. I recall one time when the right question was "What is the Sun?" (the answer was "The nearest star to Earth") and the woman who buzzed in looked vacantly into the air and mumbled something about "Omega?"
Alex Trebek was noticeably startled at how somebody could be so ignorant.
This wasn't Celebrity Jeopardy, was it?
I don't think so. It just happened to be a contestant who was incredibly stupid about basic astronomy.
