The Jeopardy “Tournament of Champions” has been in full swing this week on the game show, bringing back some of the popular winners from the past year. Today’s game featured a question about Michael Avenatti, but no one rang in with the answer.
“This lawyer’s star rose while repping Stormy Daniels but fell after he was accused of trying to extort millions from Nike in 2019,” the clue read.
All three looked blankly at the camera as time ran out.
Alex Trebek gave the correct answer, then added, “His name quickly forgotten obviously.”
He was this close 👌🏻to being president! pic.twitter.com/vtlqhMR025

Some of the response on Twitter was hilarious.
Wish someone had answered, "Creepy Porn Lawyer."

Okay but like……that's still such an easy question regardless if you keep up with politics or not.
