A contestant on ‘Jeopardy!’ is the subject of much internet hilarity after she confused Jack White with fellow Detroit native Eminem.
On last night’s edition of the long-running series, host Alex Trebek gave a clue, which read: “A recent vinyl resurgence has been aided by this musician, who built a pressing plant in his Detroit hometown.” Julie buzzed in first and guessed, “Who is Eminem?” Only for a fellow contestant to quickly buzz in after her and name the correct answer.
Julie’s blunder on its own wouldn’t have been so bad, except that a photo of the White Stripes singer accompanied the clue. The picture featured the long-haired White rocking a black fedora, triangle goatee, and a pencil-thin mustache. Not exactly a look you would associate with the Grammy Award-winning Slim Shady.
In other news, Jack White recently shared two new tracks from his upcoming album, Boarding House Reach. Eminem, meanwhile, released his ninth studio album, Revival, last month.
