P.E.I. question on Jeopardy! stumps contestants

“What is Prince Edward Island?”

Apparently, the brainiac competitors on Wednesday’s airing of Jeopardy! and its all-time winningest champion host have no idea.

The American TV quiz show’s current long-running champ, Amy Schneider, chose a category within the Double Jeopardy round entitled “Local Nicknames.”

With $2,000 up for grabs, the answer was: “A Spud Islander is a resident of this Canadian province, known for its potatoes.”

Then crickets, as neither Schneider nor her two challengers could come up with the question, which was “What is Prince Edward Island.”

Even host Ken Jennings appeared to admit not knowing the question as he relayed the correct response.

Island potato farmers are already feeling the sting of a temporary Canadian ban on exporting P.E.I. spuds to the United States due to the discovery of two cases of potato wart.

For the record, Schneider won the day’s match to stretch her winning streak to 36 shows — and added another $17,800 to her total of $1,181,800.
