You know, I'm not about to judge because I could NEVER compete on Jeopardy. I'm just not that smart, plus I have a horrible memory, so I won't be too critical here, but the internet seems to be having fun with this video of a Jeopardy contestant who confused Shaka Zulu and Chaka Khan. Under the category "The Zulus," the answer was, "Here, as on each Sept. 24, Zulus celebrate a holiday that was named in honor of this warrior leader of the early 1800s." Contestant Sarah Jett Rayburn was confident she had the right answer and said "Who is Chaka Khan?" Unfortunately that is incorrect. She should have said, "Who is Shaka Zulu?" Okay...so an honest mistake, but there were PICTURES of Zulu warriors along with the clue, not a picture of Chaka Khan. Plus, the category was "The Zulus" so pretty obvious that would be part of the answer. So the video of this poor woman's flub has gone viral, and social media is really enjoying it.
