Local Teen on Jeopardy Has Some Fun With Alex Trebek



    USDA: Washing Raw Chicken Puts You at Risk for Illness

    A La Jolla teen had some fun with Alex Trebek on Jeopardy on Thursday night – and made him say one of the Internet’s favorite lines.

    Sabrina Duong appeared on the show’s teen edition. Asked this question: “Roughly half the size of Texas, it’s the largest structure made by living creatures and can even be seen from space,” she apparently had no idea. (The answer is the Great Barrier Reef.)

    So Sabrina scribbled down: “What are those?”

    The line, of course, is from a famous Instagram video from 2015 where a teen, taking video of law enforcement officers, asks one of them: “What are those?” He’s referring to the officer’s choice of foot attire.

    Many in the audience laughed as Trebek said that line.

    Sabrina came in third place in Final Jeopardy for $45. But, more importantly, she won the Internet for her wit.

    You can watch Jeopardy every weeknight at 7:30 p.m. on NBC 7.
