15 Times TV Quiz Show Writers Got the Answer Wrong
In 2018, Jeopardy! contestant Ryan Fenster was brought back after being told his question, “What is the Great Schism?” was incorrect for the clue, “St. Thomas Aquinas died traveling to Lyon, France while attempting to heal this rift between the Latin & Greek churches.” The producers didn’t realize his answer was actually correct until a former writer saw the episode and contacted the head writer, according to Jeopardy.com.
