That’s because on Friday’s brand-new episode of the syndicated game show, a man named Tom lost his pride when he buzzed in on what he thought was a pretty straightforward answer.

Well, when he asked, ‘What is the age of consent?’ people around the country instantly experienced some next-level secondhand embarrassment.

That’s because the answer Alex Trebek actually read was:

“In common law, the age of this, signaling adulthood, is presumed to be 14 in boys & 12 in girls.”

As in, puberty, not the age of consent. Yikes!

Luckily, not everyone on the panel gave bad answers — in fact, contestant Kerry is the reigning champ going into Tuesday night’s new episode!

The whole situation is almost too cringe-inducing to fully write out, so you’re just going to have to watch it for yourself.

Ch-ch-check out the best/worst moment in Jeopardy! history (above)!!!
