Defending champion Doug Dodson was going to win Tuesday night’s Jeopardy, whether or not he answered the Final Jeopardy question correctly or not. He was that far ahead. When he didn’t know the answer he decided to go with one that he felt sure was going to elicit a big reaction.
“What is… back rolls?” he cheekily answered. It was wrong, of course, but fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race and Alyssa Edwards’ iconic season 5 moment clearly got the joke. Alec Trebek had no clue, though, and seemed skeptical when Dodson assured him it would go viral. But viral it has gone.
Oh hey. While we’re here and while we’re talking about Alyssa, perhaps this is a good time to plug the fact that her new Netflix show Dancing Queen begins streaming TONIGHT at midnight! OMG< are you GAGGING? Will you be watching? Are you tongue-popping RIGHT NOW in anticipation?
