Thank the geography gods, CNN’s Kate Boulduan didn’t pronounce the correct answer as “Iowa.”
This is the week of the “Jeopardy! Power Players,” which means the week of certainly-easier trivia questions lobbed at high-profile players, competing to win $50,000 for their respective charities.
The three notable contestants Wednesday night were comedian Louis C.K., CNN’s Kate Bolduan and the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart. The question in question? “Its biggest unversity is Boise State.”
Bolduan buzzed in and correctly named Idaho.
C.K. was the big winner that game and gave his money to the Fistula Foundation, which treats women worldwide for the childbirth-related injury.
Fans of Boise State and Jeopardy! shared their excitement on Twitter.
