Can “Jeopardy!” predict the future? A question on Friday night’s episode seems to hint they might.
The game show, which is filmed weeks in advance, had a question about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. Earlier this week, it was revealed the former couple spent time alone together in Montana.
“As a couple, they were known as ‘Bennifer’” the “Jeopardy!” clue read. There was also an entire category just about Montana.
Naturally, Twitter had some thoughts, joking that the show is trolling all of us.
“As a couple, they were jointly known as ‘Bennifer’” IS #JEOPARDY MISS CLEO AND/OR TROLLING US ALL?! Also can’t believe the guy got it wrong. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Iconic couple.

Bennifer as an answer tonight on #Jeopardy just another example of how damn prescient the clue writers are when writing for episodes that will air months after they're taped
