'Jeopardy!' Contestants Suffer Triple Miss on Taylor Swift Clue: 'We're Gonna Get Killed for That'

Taylor Swift

Swifties who regularly tune into Jeopardy! likely walked away with a deep sense of satisfaction after all three contestants recently missed a clue about a Taylor Swift song.

On Thursday, March 14, Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions competitors Yogesh Raut, Ben Chan and Troy Meyer failed to answer a $400 question under the "Songs of Youth" category. Host Ken Jennings read off the prompt: "Inspired by her bestie, Tay Tay sang when 'somebody tells you they love you' at this title age 'you're gonna believe them."

Meyer guessed 17, while Raut answered 22, and Chan didn't offer up a guess. The correct answer, of course, was "Fifteen," a track from Swift's second studio album, Fearless. The pop superstar, 34, previously shared that she wrote the song about her high school BFF, Abigail Anderson, when they were 15.

"We're gonna get killed for that," Meyer declared when Jennings revealed the correct response. And he spoke no lie.

One X (formerly Twitter) user, wrote, "Found a common weakness among the 3 finalists in the @Jeopardy Tournament of Champions... @taylorswift13," alongside a clip of the triple miss.

Another person tweeted, " I can't believe the one triple stumper this episode was about Taylor Swift."

Meanwhile, another Swiftie wrote via X, "There was a Taylor Swift clue on Jeopardy today! Me yelling at my TV: FIFTEEN FIFTEEN ITS FIFTEEN As you can guess no one got it…"

This isn't the first time a Swift clue has stumped Jeopardy! contestants. In December, a whole category on the game show was dedicated to the pop star, and the competitors painstakingly flubbed their way through it.
