Jeopardy! reality TV category includes Survivor, Amazing Race questions

Jeopardy! had a “reality of TV” category last night as part of the Teen Tournament, and its answers included Survivor and The Amazing Race.

TAR 16 winner Jordan Pious tweeted, “My brother and I were a clue on Jeopardy tonight! This is crazy!” The clue, he wrote, was “In 2010 Siblings Dan & Jordan hit the finish line in San Francisco to win this CBS show’s $1 Million prize.”

That was deemed a harder question than the one that included Survivor Tocantins‘s final two. Its runner-up, Stephen Fishbach, tweeted that being included in a clue was “the single greatest moment of my life.” The $200 clue, which he photographed, was: “J.T. outwitted, outplayed & outlasted Stephen & all the rest to win $1 mil. on the Tocantins edition of this show.”
