On tonight’s episode of Jeopardy!, host Mayim Bialik, 46, read the clue: “100 years ago, in November 1922, Howard Carter made this discovery some 3,000 years after death who caused its creation.”

Then-two-day champion Jeff Weinstock buzzed to guess: “What’s King Tut?”

“More specific?” hurry Mayim.

“What is King Tut’s Body as a Mummy?” he has answered.

“King Tut’s tomb, that’s right,” the host said.

However, some viewers were shocked that Mayim accepted such a vague answer.

“I don’t think ‘King Tut’s body as a mummy’ is the same as ‘King Tut’s grave’,” one tweeted.

Another fan wrote, “That was the longest clarification but not exactly the answer.”

“‘Tomb’ doesn’t equal ‘body like a mummy’,” growled a third.

Despite Mayim’s leniency with that response, Jeff was unable to maintain his winning streak tonight.

Instead, tech pro Joe Feldman emerged victorious with $22,900 in winnings.

WHAT IS UNFAIR?

Earlier this week, fans ripped the show for being “inconsistent” after believing they had discovered “evidence” of even more lax rules in the past.

The drama came after champion Megan Wachspress’ fourth win was called a fluke and fans claimed she ‘deprived’ contender Sadie Goldberger of a win.

During Final Jeopardy!, Megan emerged victorious over Sadie after Mayim determined that she hadn’t finished writing her correct answer in time.

The win was controversial, with fans sounding so online that Megan eventually made her own statement on Twitter.

The controversy has continued online for days, with fans noting various examples of similar situations in the past.

Danger! Fanatics have been arguing over a previous incident in which a contestant wrote the answer “Who is John Denve?” leaving John Denver’s “r”.
