GROSS! Jeopardy Gets BLASTED By Sophia Bush & All Of Twitter For THIS Super Sexist Category!

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikTwitterSophia Bush

no title

Who would have thought that Jeopardy would ever do something like this?

On the episode last night, Alex Trebek was given an incredibly sexist and completely disgusting category to read to the contestants.

It was titled What Women Want and instead of being some sort of cute play on words/pun it was an entire category highlighting ridiculous female stereotypes.

With one clue being 'Some help around the house; Would it kill you to get out the Bissell Bagless canister of these every once in a while?' it's no wonder that it ruffled some feathers on Twitter.

One of those women, especially, was Sophia Bush who blatantly called the show out with an AH-mazing point.

She said:

Garth Brooks' Dublin Concerts May NOT Happen!

Filed under: Music MinuteSad Sad

garth brooks dublin concerts may not happen

This would be so sad for all of the fans that have already bought tickets!

It was supposed to be a series of happy events.

Garth Brooks planned five comeback tours in and around Dublin but unfortunately the tickets went on sale before being officially approved!

So while fans scooped up tix for the concerts on July 25th through July 29th, two of those shows have already been nixed by the Dublin City Council - the ones in charge of approving permits for shows like this.

The reasons for the denial of at least two shows is because of "the scale, magnitude and number of the concerts" and the "cumulative effect on residents and some businesses."

And while the three other Brooks shows are still in play, they aren't a definite as of yet!

Here's what Brooks' promoter Peter Aiken said

This Lady! She's Won More Jeopardy! Games Than Any Other Woman In History & Has $400K To Show For It!

Filed under: TV NewsInspiration

There’s no denying it!

Julia Collins is smart.

Julia Collins is rich.

And Julia Collins has made history this week, becoming not only the winningest woman in Jeopardy! history, but she’s one game away from taking the title of second place for most consecutive wins by ANY contestant, EVER!

Last night, 31-year-old Collins won her 19th game, bringing her total winnings to a jaw-dropping $410,000! That also ties her with 2005 winner David Madden, who also won 19 games in a row.

The only person to have a longer streak is Ken Jennings, who of course went on an unheard of 74 game run that netted him $2,520,700!

Her good fortune couldn’t have come at a better time either! Julia has been jobless since the beginning of the year!

But she foresaw her success on the game show circuit a LONG time ago! She predicted she’d be a Jeopardy! champ in her eighth-grade yearbook!

Julia explained:

"I was a pretty nerdy kid. I liked to shout out the answers to the TV like everybody else does.”

Tonight, Julia will be shouting out her answers while trying to stay alive for her 20th win!

Our fingers are firmly crossed for you, girl!

Jeopardy!'s 11-Day Champ Finally Defeated! Which Clue Stumped Arthur Chu After A Record Run & $297,200?!

Filed under: TV News

Oh how the mighty have fallen!

Arthur Chu seemed unstoppable after an impressive 11-day winning streak and aggressive playing strategy on Jeopardy!. But the 30-year-old trivia whiz was finally defeated last night!

Arthur sparked some controversy last month with his renegade playing style which had him jumping all over the answer board, selecting clues from all different categories in an attempt to throw off his opponents.

And it worked!

He’s walking away with nearly $300K and a spot in Jeopardy! history - he is third in all time wins behind Ken Jennings (who had a 74-game winning streak) and Dave Madden (who won 19 times).

Not too shabby, Arthur!

He seems to be doing OK with the loss too. Not only does he get to go home and count all of his money now, but he gets to stop and make a few more TV appearances on the way!

Arthur announced on Twitter:
