What Are Meese? ‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant Has Fans Cracking Up After ‘Relatable’ Wrong Answer (Video)

Second Chance Tournament contestant Jack Weller returned after a rare tie-breaking loss in 2021

Jack Weller didn’t just win “Jeopardy!” on Tuesday, he also won audience hearts with a hilarious wrong answer that even gave host Ken Jennings a laugh.

Weller, a law student, lost to Brian Chang in a rare tie-breaker round last season and returned for the Second Chance Tournament to deliver another “Jeopardy!” highlight.

On Tuesday’s episode, under the category of “Plurals That Don’t End in S,” Weller was given the clue “Moose,” to which he quickly answered… “What are meese?”

“No,” Jennings said with a chuckle, “No, Jack!” The correct answer? That would also be “moose.”

It’s an understandable mistake considering the plural of “goose” is “geese” (however, the plural of “mongoose” is “mongooses,” further proving how tricky grammar questions can be,) and no one is questioning that Weller otherwise played a killer — and winning — game of “Jeopardy!” (He’ll be back for the Second Chance Tournament finals later this week).

But you better believe the folks at home are having a good laugh over the mix-up, and the ‘relatable’ grammar snafu has quickly made him a new fan-favorite on social media:

Weller must have been feeling the social media love, because he also got in on the laughs:
