Colin Jost is on TV every week telling bland and tone-deaf jokes on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, and has been for five years. He co-hosted The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards with his Weekend Update co-anchor Michael Che. And he’s currently engaged to Scarlett Johansson, one of the most famous actresses in the world. But the contestants on Jeopardy’s Tournament of Champions were completely stumped when asked to identify him.
Adding salt to the wound, Jeopardy then notified Jost on Twitter to let him know.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Jost’s Jeopardy moment.
They just did a jeopardy question about @ColinJost and nobody knew who he was and 🥺🥺— katie burke (@katie_burkie) November 5, 2019

No one on Jeopardy being able to identify Colin Jost from both a description of him and a photo made me so happy.— Roni Finklestein (@roni1133) November 5, 2019
Nobody knew Colin Jost on Jeopardy! just now even with a picture of his face. As is right— tiny tort (@tiny_tortzke) November 5, 2019

@nbcsnl Just in case no one was watching Jeopardy, there was a clue that the answer was Colin Jost. They even showed a photo of him but still no contestant knew who he was. Just saying….— No one (@danielsavoies) November 5, 2019
