A JEOPARDY! contestant left fans in hysterics after forfeiting the final round of the game to give a wrong, but hilarious, answer.
纽约 Sportscaster Mike Janela was in third place with no chance of winning the game, so decided to joke with the audience instead.
His last moments on the show left him in good graces with sports fans everywhere.
The Final Jeopardy! clue was, “Patented in 1955, it did not go over well in the high-end fashion world but the then-new aerospace industry found it very useful.”
The correct answer was, “What is Velcro?”
But Janela was stumped and couldn’t think of the right answer.

反而, he gave one sports team a shout-out and wrote, “What is I’m going to lose but the Mets will win it all this year?”
Laughter filled the studio as the response was read aloud.
Many took to 社交媒体 to discuss the funny moment.
Twitter user @DommeWhisperer tweeted, “Mike had the best final jeopardy answer ever! Let’s go Mets!! #Jeopardy.”
User @TheRealJZim tweeted, “This guy should have won with his answer!” with a photo of Janela and his Mets-related question.
另一个用户, @applesiderr, 发推文, “Ok, 麦克风, we follow delusional #Mets fans see you.”
Even though he lost, he still took him $2,000 for the second-place prize.
He was also able to make a rare second appearance at the studio, though the last time he was there was in a professional capacity.
“I used to be an adjudicator for Guinness World Records. Traveled the world, judging records. And eight years ago, I was here to present Alex with his certificate for hosting the most episodes of the same game show… And that was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but now so is this one,” Janela said on the show.
