'Jeopardy!' champion becomes fan favorite after hilarious wrong answer: 'What are meese?'

Tuesday’s Jeopardy! proved that even the smartest contestants don’t know everything. Law student Jack Weller appeared in the Second Chance Tournament, following an extremely rare tie-breaking loss last season.

“In your first appearance on the show, you took eventual Tournament of Champions player Brian Chang to a tiebreaker question,” said host Ken Jennings. “It was very exciting.” While Weller played a fantastic game on Tuesday, he made one tiny mistake. Under the category of “Plurals That Don't End in S,” he was given the clue: Moose. He responded, “What are meese?”

The word for more than one goose is geese, but the word for more than one moose is not meese. (It's still "moose.") Even though his answer was embarrassing, the overwhelming majority of reactions on Twitter were positive as several viewers found him relatable.

Despite not knowing the plural of moose, Weller knew a whole bunch of other stuff. He went into Final Jeopardy with an insurmountable lead. Still, he correctly answered and advanced to the semifinal round of the tournament.
