JEOPARDY! fans roasted contestant Mazin Omer tonight after he gave “the WORST guess ever”.
Viewers were shocked as the player mixed up two very different sixties icons.
Mazin Omer gave what fans described as ‘the worst guess ever’ on Jeopardy! tonightHost Mayim Bialik watched on as he gave ‘a historic bad answer’
Host Mayim Bialik, 46, gave the clue: “To honor his father, this star here was knighted in his birth name, so he’s Sir Maurice Micklewhite.”
Student Mazin incorrectly guessed: “Who is Mick Jagger?”
Jeopardy! viewers could not believe that he had mixed up The Italian Job star, 89, with the Rolling Stone, 78.
On Twitter, one wrote: “That has got to be the WORST guess ever!”
Another agreed: “The Michael Caine/Mick Jagger response will live on as a historic bad answer.”
One viewer sarcastically called the guess “truly amazing”, adding “I wish I had this lack of knowledge.”
Another tried to show more sympathy for Mazin, writing “I’m sure he knows a million things that I don’t, but man, I wasn’t ready for that.”
