AceShowbiz - Machine Gun Kelly seemingly needs to work harder to breach his popularity to certain circles. The "Born with Horns" artist was the answer to an $800 clue this week on "Jeopardy!", but none of the contestants were able to guess correctly.
"The stage name of this rapper and actor gets shortened to MGK," said all-time champ and co-host Ken Jennings, referring to multi-hyphenate celeb whose real name is Colson Baker. Ken's words, however, was welcomed by a complete silence which was promptly broken up by that cursed "stumper" triple beep.
"Not fans of Machine Gun Kelly, apparently," the host said.
Immediately after the episode aired, MGK fans took to Twitter to show their reactions to the contestants' lack of recognition for the "Bird Box" actor. "@machinegunkelly was a @Jeopardy question tonight and no one knew the answer! I was appalled," one fan wrote.
Someone else posted a picture of Cardi B being surrounded by a pile of cash with a caption which read, "Me if I went on Jeopardy and all of the questions were about Machine Gun Kelly." Another user wrote sarcastically, "Me: *screaming* WHO IS MACHINE GUN KELLY."
That aside, the new episode of "Jeopardy!" saw contestant Amy Schneider making history. The engineering manager won the game show for the 21st time, setting the record for the most consecutive wins by a woman.
"It happened months ago for me, and I'm still trying to take it in," Schneider, who won $806,000 as of December 29, wrote of the filming of "Jeopardy!". "In my highest of high hopes, I never dreamed of matching Julia's streak. It's hard to say how I felt: proud, dazed, happy, numb, all those things."
As for Larissa Kelly, whose $655,930 record was defeated by Schneider, had nothing but love for the latter. "Well, it was fun to hold a Jeopardy record for a few years...but it's been even more fun to watch @Jeopardamy set new standards for excellence, on the show and off," she wrote. "Congratulations to Amy on becoming the woman with the highest overall earnings in the show's history!" To that, Schneider replied, "Thanks so much, I'm honored to be in your company, and I look forward to some day watching the woman who beats us both!"
